How To Use Your Silicone Molds

My First Attempt at Resin........I am hooked!!

Wow! What a fun medium to use with my molds!!! I am now hooked on resin! It was fun and easy to use!
The only think I dislike about it is the time it takes to cure! I am such an inpatient person and at first, I thought this would teach me some patience. That is until I discovered some resin that only takes 10 minutes to cure! :D I have not used it yet but that is next on the agenda!
Anyway, these are all made with my molds and I love them. I wish I had a week to sit and make pretty little resin pieces! These are made with my molds, Easy Cast Resin and some metallic powders. :) I guess they could be glossed but I have not tried this yet. I don't know why they didn't come out all shiny on their own??? But, being new to this I'm sure I will figure that out soon. :)

  1. Beautiful...I've been bitten by the resin bug too :D
    I heard of something called ICE resin that is very shiny and crystal clear. It's a bit pricey but with minis a little goes a long way. I haven't tried it yet.
    I need to figure out how to make two part molds.

  3. Very pretty. Where do you get the resin. I keep reading about it for jewelry crafts, but I haven't found any locally.
