Designer Tips

  • Use a ready-made silicone mold of your choice or make your own mold with Amazing Mold Putty.
  • Lightly dust the mold with metallic powder. Tap off excess.
  • Prepare several molds at once. Since Amazing Resin cures quickly, you will want to do all your pouring at one time.
  • If you over pour the resin, carefully shave of the excess with a hobby knife.
  • Use the sanding sponge to rough up the back of the resin piece and the glue pad on the bobby pin. Use it to clean up edges of casting as needed.
  • Because Amazing Resin is so lightweight, you can make a substantial piece without adding much weight.
