  • Resin Castings

    Hello everyone, I am interested in making some castings of my carvings. I have done some reading. Does anyone have experience with this? I would like to know sources of supply, books to learn more, videos, etc.
    What types of resins and molds are best? You get the idea. Thanks.

    Re: Resin Castings

    I do multiple castings of my Santa's. I use 'Durham's rock hard water putty'. Its mixed with water, and its an old, time tested casting material. It comes in large or small quantities from your hardware store. And for the mold I use 'Abatron's MasterMold 12-3'. Its a non-toxic polyurethane flexible liquid paste, when dry, can be used over and over. It can be found in some woodworking catalogs or see the link below. All come with directions on use. Although, there are MANY products, these are easy and fun to use. Below are links for your research.

      I use hydrostone and a rubber compound for the mold. Works just fine.

        Does it ruin your orginal? Can you get detail? Very interesting. I would love to try it. Thanks a lot.
