Looking good, Clys! I see you got a transparent one too. That will still happen to me too on occasion, even though I would swear up and down that it was an even mix!

Did you add tint to any of them? I like the color of the one on the far left.

The one of the far left is wood hahahahah......yea, I added tint to the others....as you can see I added more and more as I went to get an idea for future casting. I'm going to sand and custom paint them this weekend. Need to order more resin and mold materials now....thanks for your helf tikidav and everybody who added to his thread. I wish everything I want to try was in life had a picture step by step thread for it!

well almost everything

Oh that's the original! Hee hee! Be sure and post the finished painted ones! I'm glad this thread has been helpful to you. You can go even smaller next time on your mold box and save yourself some $$ on silicone. Your castings will be easier to pop out too.

I was trying to figure out how much smaller I could go.....about an 3/4 inch from the edge of the original? as a rule of thumb?

YAY!!!! They look great!! We ran out of resin the first day too. That was a bummer. When we re-ordered, we got two gallons. Should be good for a while now.

Wanna do a pendant trade?? We won't be able to make the February Chop, so if you still have any left, we can swap in March.

Can't wait to see them painted.




hey Moki, I'm down with a trade for sure! I'm going to get more resin and try to get a few more out of this run...so they should be painted and ready to roll in time for march!

About this you can try putting plasticine one that do not contain Sulpher to cover the pimples in your mold before casting...

Yes, 3/4" is good. 1/2" and 1/4" will also work for a small piece. The more molds you make, the more daring you will get!

Clarita is correct. You can do this method too, but will have to smear in the clay before each casting because it will pull out with the piece.

Mr. NoNaMe: Whahappen?! Did it set up before you could pour it? Nice casting of the inside of the mixing cup.

Clysdalle: SWEET! Those came out really nice. How's the mold holding up?

Like you said, being so think it has cracked a little forcing them out....but over all it's in good shape....I'm hoping to pull 10 more and then it's retired....


noname, that is a great casting of that cup the detail is perfect!

Hey Clysdalle-If you already have some tint, it should work with the resin from Vagabond. I've used tint from the same bottle on a number of resins from different makers and never had a problem.

Try it and report back!
