Casting Resin 101: Essential Tips for Stunning Resin Art Projects

Hello to all our crafting friends and welcome! We're delighted to share with you a fascinating guide on crafting with casting resin, courtesy of the incredibly talented Donna from Mason Creations etc. Before we get into the nitty-gritty, we invite you to watch a video Donna has graciously provided. It's packed with visual steps that beautifully complement this blog, ensuring you get the most out of your crafting experience.  


Amazing Casting Resin is a fantastic medium for three dimensional projects, setting in just 10 minutes and offering a brilliant alternative to traditional epoxy resin that takes longer to cure. Donna walks us through the simple process of mixing part-A and part-B of the resin, stressing the importance of getting the measurements just right to achieve the perfect cure. She introduces a silicone mixing cup as an essential tool for mixing, and provides tips on how to avoid the pesky bubbles that can sometimes form.

We're excited to let you know that everything Donna uses can be found on Decoupagenapkins.com. Whether you're looking for silicone brushes to tackle those intricate details in your molds, or you're on the hunt for quality crafting supplies like rice papers, transfers, and a wide selection of paints, Decoupagenapkins.com has got you covered.

Donna's tutorial goes beyond the basics, offering practical advice on mixing, pouring, and ensuring your resin sets perfectly in the molds. She doesn’t stop there; she also guides us through painting the resin creations with lovely spring colors from Pentart paints, followed by a protective coat of Polyvine Heavy Duty Wood Varnish.

Additionally, Donna demonstrates how to add depth and character to your pieces with antiquing techniques using Pentart Antique Paste. The final touch? Metallic Decor Wax that add a gorgeous shimmer to your finished pieces.
