    Does anyone know any good local brands for Polyurethane / Polyester Resin in the Philippines? (or Asia)

    Just as the title says. I'm looking for any good (possibly budget) brands of resin aside from the well known Smooth On.

    Can anyone suggest alternatives to Smooth-On So Strong Colorant?

    Wondering if anyone’s had similar results with much more affordable micas or pigments? While there’s no doubt So Strong is a favorite to many, the price is a bit daunting, especially when you are wanting to test and broaden your urethane resin pigmenting skills.

    Master Shake (Aqua Teen Hunger Force) resin figure [WIP]

    Just ordered a 3D print of Master Shake, one of the most iconic Adult Swim characters of all time. I'm so excited to try out resin casting, and Shake should be pretty easy to mold given his simple shape! Do any of you guys have any experience making casts "hollow" to save on resin? Would...

    Patching/preventing air bubbles in resin knife cast?

    I’ve casted up a bunch of these buck 120 knives and I’m struggling to patch these holes. Does anyone have any recommendations? I plan to use a pressure pot in the future but I’d like to save these. These were casted with smooth cast 300. Also, will this resin work in a pressure pot? The work...

    Dishonored 2 Bone Charms

    I've been wanting to make these since the game came out and I finally got around to finishing them! A regular version and a "corrupt" version. They started off as 8 separate 3D-printed parts but I cast them in resin before painting. The delicate, thin d-rings were a particular challenge as I...

    Making an Alginate Mold for Mask Making

    Heya RPF, I've got a project I'm working on with a mask in which I want to be able to cast a final copy from resin. The mask is made from foam clay and PLA plastic from 3D prints, and I'm going to seal it all in flexbond and wet-sand it smooth. I don't really have time to learn hands-on using...

    How to create a lightly sanded "frosted" finish in clear resin casts?

    I'm casting something in clear resin, and I want it to have a frosted finish. Can I add anything to the silicone mold to cause this type of surface texture? I tried cornstarch, but that didn't do anything. I suppose I could recast my object, lightly sand the new resin object, then re-mold/...
