I made this resin piece from a silicone mold. I dont know what to do with it, but it turned out great and I plan to make more, maybe some keychains or zipper pulls
Its white resin and I added black paint to the groves
That’s pretty cool! How big is it?
Cool! This would make great zipper pulls!
It turned out great! How does the flat resin compare to ShrinkyDink?
Super cool! You got great detail.
Did you draw it and pour resin over it? Sorry, I am not familiar with how you do it, can you explain more. It looks super cool!
This is lovely! Did you design the mold? Love this interpretation of the mononoke hime!
Thank you, its about 3 in tall
Thank you, no I bought it from an Etsy shop called Nheria
Its a mold, like an ice cube try that you pour liquid plastic in and it hardens😊
I dont think they really compare I havent used much shrinky dink though. Definitely feels stronger and is thicker
I’m sure the resin would be sturdier (although I think Shrinky Dink has an ultra-thick version that I have never tried).
I really wondered more about how the processes compared. Do you buy the resin mold with the design already in it, and then just pour the resin? I haven’t seen those type of molds around here; do you order them online? … or make them yourself somehow…? Just curious! I love learning about products and techniques, and you got a very attractive result!
Thank you, I bought the mold online, there are a ton of small shops. But to start out go look at Sophie and Toffee, they have subscription boxes that are a good intro and include everything in the box to start. They also have lots of videos and instructions using the specific box products. Instagram has a ton of people sharing as well.
Thank you for that site! It reminds me a lot of Alpha Stamps, only resin-oriented rather than papercraft.
