Liquid plastic (resin) tutorial by IchigoKitty Liquid plastic (resin) tutorial by IchigoKitty
Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks!

PLEASE READ:
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!

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?

would this type of thing work for homestuck horns?
examples if you dont know what it is

ive been looking for another solution to making these horns that would be slightly easier, so if we were able to make the mold round and stuff would this work for these horns (just a few examples above)

you would have to make a two part mold, which smooth on shows you how to do on their website, but yes it would work
