    I have a project that may be finished in a relatively soft material.

    I know there are spray paints with respectable degress of hardness, but is there anything closer to a "spray-on resin" that may increase the resilience of a softer medium?

    Castin' Craft's spray is not sprayable resin. It's either a catalyst that takes out the "tack" of an uncured piece OR it's a clear coat to cover the tack.

    Resin is a two part substance consisting of a base and a catalyst. I don't think it can be sprayed.

    I have seen a spray-on pin-hole filler/surface treatment. Not sure if it is truly resin based...

    Here is a small video showing how I made the mold using spray silicone this gun also uses a spray on resin cartridge but that is a bit messy and you need a well ventlaited room and a respirator
    I think the brush on resin would be better
    just click on the link for the spray on silicone video
    its a 104.3 MB file so it may take a minute or two for it to load... enjoySpray on silicone mold

    You know, there's also Verathane in an aerosol can... Wonder if that may accomplish the task...
