Also rufully how many call blanks could I make out of a gallon of water clear. I like how people make all the swirly lookin stuff it looks like water clear would be the right stuff?

Your best bet is the Alumilite Clear. It is a formulation I helped them develope specifically for turning.  It has better polishiability

As for how many blanks...depends on the size of blanks.  Figure your size in cubic inches (length x wid x height) and multiply by .554 and that will give you aprox how much resin you will need.  There is 128 ounces in a gallon so you can do the math from there.
