Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks!

Smooth on also has a rubber molding material. That is what I use. I may post a tutorial on that also.

Please browse the other comments a little to see if your question has already been answered first! That would be a great help!

o.o~ I didn't know some resins go white like that. I use clear cast o:

wonderful little tutorial.
Just a question: here in germany this resin isn't a salable goods, so the hint to buy it online is good. But what is, if I want to color it in blue, green or gold like a normal gemstone? Can I use tinting paint?

If you're trying to achieve things like gems then there is a tutorial on Youtube that they use ink from a ball point pen. Do what =LeaneaMee101 said too and get clear cast resin since they dry clear and not the opaque white which is shown in this tutorial.

[link] thats one of the youtube videos to get some ideas from and you can do your research from there. Always do a lot of research and small tests before jumping right into the project as a whole so you don't mess up. :D good luck on your casting!

Normally for people to get color resin without painting, they use clear cast resin and while mixing the two parts together, they add some paint to the mix. There are a lot of tutorials online to do it.

How durable is this resin? I saw the gold buttons in the "after" pics below the tutorial. I want to design something like that, a starshape, that is, but I'm afraid the tips would break off. :(

If they rub against a cloth material (I'll be using a soft denim) do you think they'll be in danger of chipping?

it's very durable

What do you use as your mold?
Princess-Paracosm's avatar
Oh, sorry. I didn't see previous comments.

Did you carve out the shape onto the mold first o.O then put the resin in after wards o.o
IchigoKitty's avatar
^^;;; no. You should just look up videos on youtube of mold making tutorials and you'll see.
