What kinds of resin plastic mouldings are available?
Plastic moulding is durable reusable moulds; they are available in self-releasing polypropylene and polyethylene plastic molding, used especially with clear polyester resin and casting epoxy.
TIP: Though effectively self-releasing, it is good standard practice to thoroughly condition and clean your molds with a mould release/conditioner before and after each use. Castin’Craft Mould Release/Conditioner is most often the release/conditioner of choice by knowledgeable resin aficionados.
How do I make a resin casting with plastic moulding?
Making your own resin jewelry or project is easy with a plastic mould and some resin, especially with one of our Beginner Resin Kits.
1: Protect your work area with freezer or waxed paper.
2: Spray the clean mould with mould release/conditioner.
3: Place the mould on a level surface, and fill the mould cavities to just below the top with resin.
4: Once cured, simply flip the plastic moulding tray over, and press the center of each piece to release it, flexing the mould if necessary.
