Dragged into Turbolasers Episode 39: How to start resin casting

A silicone mold for our Thorn Moon defenders.

This episode is centered around how to create a two part silicone mold for resin casting. We start by discussing why we learned how to make molds in the first place, before talking about the basic principles involved. We then talk at length about various ways to improve your molds and resin casts, focusing on methods to reduce bubbles.






You can learn more about resin casting and the tools that improve the process on our blog.

  2. This is excellent. Very useful and thanks for doing this. I still want to get into casting myself... it's just a matter of when time and money will allow it but it will happen! Mainly for terrain making purposes for me.

    1. Happy to hear that it was helpful! This sort of casting would be good for terrain, some you can always use more terrain!
