I hade some rough surface castings initially when I did not let the resin cure (it was still too orange..and it reacts with investment giving a very rough texture) ...had the same issues with the B9 Cherry/Red when it is not cured...
B9 has a light they sell that will fully cure their resin and I am told WaxCast as well. There are other means of DIY coating that will seal pretty much any castable resin eliminating the need for curing.
Incidently, I have used both Cherry/Red from B9 and WaxCast and they both are castable when fully cured. I prefer WaxCast because you can literally see the wax in it. It also doesn't settle.
B9 has newer Yellow/Green that people are casting very well...but I have not personally tried it.
I think this is the #1 thing people don't do: cure the parts enough. They always want to rush it. Myself, I cure the heck out of it before doing any sort of casting and I have not had a problem with it either at my jeweler.
