    Hello all,

    If you live in SoCal (I'm in San Diego) and would like to learn the art of resin casting and mold making, I might be interested in talking to you. I need some shop help. I work a normal job, but I'm planning to do resin casting full time. I'll give you lessons in return for helping me. After the learning period (agreed upon by both of us), you can start charging me (or anyone else interested in your services) to make extra money.

    What you'll be helping with:

    Staging model parts for molding
    Clay work
    building boxes and other containers for molds
    measuring and mixing rtv
    pouring molds
    using a vacuum pump and pot
    cleaning equipment and tools
    helping with master patterns - sanding, prepping, polishing, etc
    measuring and mixing resin
    using a pressure pot
    casting
    customer service, fulfillment, and on line marketing
    and more

    After you learn the craft, you'll be an independent contractor. I'll have small paid jobs for you. You can also take other jobs since people are always looking for resin casters.

    This is a fun craft, with lots of potential. If anyone is interested, please PM me.

    Thank you in advance

    That's a great offer for someone wanting to make a start in the industry.

    Wish I lived in SoCal!

    I am in San Diego and don't need training. I just need shop space.

    How can I help?
