Resin Instructions

We've written some handy instructions for beginners to help you with your resin journey. You can also watch lots of videos on our YouTube channel. Here are our favourite 3 for beginners:

Sculpt & Cast is a non-toxic, water-based resin system that is made up of 2 parts – a mineral resin powder and an acrylic liquid. It is not the same as traditional epoxy resin because it is an opaque material that does not have a shiny surface unless it is polished, varnished or waxed. However, it is very user friendly because of its non-toxicity - it is solvent free and contains no VOCs. The same as Jesmonite, Resin8 Sculpt & Cast creates surface textures beautifully when cast into moulds and jewellery mounts. It can be fragile but is reinforceable with special fibres. Pigments can be added to it to give a range of dense opaque colours and it can be used for internal sculptures and in some jewellery applications.
