Fast curing resin

Yes, I said fast-curing! Don't believe me? Well here it is:

Amazing Casting Resin. And it IS amazing. It comes in a formula that dries clear and it also comes in a formula that becomes opaque white when it cures. You can paint it, distress it, drill holes in it and colour it in various ways. 

It's easy to use. You take a mold and warm it in the microwave for one minute. Then you mix the two-part Amazing Casting Resin. You will find it heats up quickly. Your open working time with it is very short -- less than a minute. Pour it quickly into the mold. Then wait: not overnight but about 15 minutes maximum. Yes, really. 

Unmold your piece and then embellish as you choose. 

This picture shows the mold and the white resin cast piece. I rubbed a plummy coloured alcohol ink into the piece then silver Rub and Buff. This treatment really brings out the flowers in the molded piece beautifully.

Here are a few pieces created using the Amazing Casting Resin. They are in various states of completion. 

Watch for Amazing Casting Resin when it comes to Beadfx. You will be amazed at how easy it is to use. And the opaque white resin opens a whole new design palate to work with.
