FYI - The air wasn't from within the resin, but rather from pouring resin into a tube filled with little umbrellas (e.g. the husks)...

I put these in a pressure pot overnight at 30-40 psi. Since I have one, I didn't really think much about not using it.

I thought I read where people have had success with Liquid Diamonds without potting, but I've not tried it. Given it's thinness and long cure, I could see why you wouldn't need a pot to get rid of bubbles. So maybe, if you're just swirling together different color epoxy, it'd work just fine without a pot. However, when you're embedding foreign stuff, seems to me like you'd want some compression on everything while it's setting so it doesn't come flying apart on you when turning. Do you really need to clamp things up when segmenting? To me, it makes sense you do...
