If you plan to embed small objects, you need transparent resin --Such as plastic toys, printed paper images or rainbow sprinkling-inside.The type of resin used in the following items, as well as the type of resin commonly used in small scale processes, are polyester and epoxy.Both of them require the two liquids to be mixed together in an accurate proportion in order to start hardening of the resin.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Mainly pouring/coated resin (such as "envirotex Lite"), designed for thin layers;Fill the shallow baffle or fill the shallow mold to cover the image.However, there are also cast epoxy, such as the "easycast" resin, which can be used for deeper molds.Epoxy is more expensive than polyester, but with much less odor and less toxicity.
-Use when the mold is deeper than 0 or so.5 \ ", with this type of resin, the casting can be poured at one time instead of layered.The most common brand of polyester resin is transparent polyester casting resin, which is good if you embed the object to be displayed in the casting.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------\ 'Mix with polyester resin and start the hardening reaction before the resin is poured into the mold.Make sure you add the correct amount of catalyst as per the resin instructions, as the wrong amount can cause problems later.Mix the components in a disposable unwaxed plastic cup using a wooden/sugar stick.

For example, if you want to copy a plastic toy tank with resin, then you can make the mold with the toy tank by building the moldMake the material around it, let it fix it down, then take out the water tank and leave a cavity that will be the container of the resin.If you don't copy the pre-Existing objects, you have to build shapes from scratch using solid materials such as clay or wood.More complex 3D shapes like tanks need 2-Part mold, the mold has two parts, they are perfectly combined before the resin is poured into the interior, and when the resin is hardened, the mold part can be opened again to release the resin shape.
The mold is reusable.
Only 1-Beginners should use part molds so that simple techniques can be practiced before entering a more advanced design.1-When you have a flat side of the shape made of resin (such as jewelry charm) and there is no too complicated shape, the part mold is used.Silicone rubber (a popular choice), re-PVC (Gelflex or vinamode) or polyurethane resin/rubber.
These are all flexible so can accommodate the cutouts on the shape you want to cast.Wood and plaster are solid mold materials that can be usedAlthough it must be sealed with a primer, a mold release agent must be used so that the resin does not stick to it.For Colored resin, opaque and transparent resin pigments can be provided.
Different coloring methods such as oil painting, acrylic paint, fabric dye, tempura powder, pastel, micro-flash, and even eye shadow can be tried, although these may affect the curing (curing) time.All you need to do is actually use trial and error!Use resin: the resin can be drilled and burped.To reduce the risk of chipping, it is better to use a dental burrs bit instead of a bit.
The resin becomes hot when drilling, so it must be cooled regularly.It is best to have the resin fully cured before polishing and polishing the finished resin.A file (e.g.It is usually used to remove any rough areas and sharp edges.
Then use wet sandpaper and dry sandpaper with water, start with coarse sandpaper (p3 20) and finish with fine sandpaper (p101.The resin can then be polished by hand or machine.Manually polish with a liquid metal polish like Brasso, or use a cotton/wool mop on a polishing machine with a dedicated polishing compound.

!Safety Tips !-Make sure you work in a well.Ventilation area, outdoor if practical.There is no heat source near the resin.-Wear disposable gloves and steam masks, especially when handling polyester resin.Goggles/safety glasses are also recommended, especially when sanding/drilling resin.
