    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?

    i know castincraft makes a spray on resin to finish up thier products.

    no idea what it does, or how well it does it though. no place local tends to carry it.

    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...
