    Fix difficult resin casting problem?

    How would you repair pinholes from bubbles in a casting that are just a mm in diameter but can NOT just be filled with glue or whatever? As you can see in the picture it is not only "holes" but rather missing parts of a thin, protruding line. A 1mm diameter wire, in fact. "Filling" it with a...

    What's a good sculptable casting material?

    Avoid Pooling when Slush Casting

    Cold casting graphite

    Has anyone ever tried cold casting with graphite powder instead of the typical aluminum, nickel, etc? I have some that I’ve used as a metallic finish but I’m curious if it would work being mixed into the resin.

    Casting detailed object questions

    I'm in the process of making a replica of the Zafiro Anejo bottle topper from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
