Resin Casting was a bit of a blast from the past for me. One cold seventies afternoon in the winter, dad came home with a resin casting set. It looked great as you could cast anything you could lay your hands on. Cast moths, cast coins, cast hair, cast nails, cast anything and everything. Suddenly everyone was getting keyrings made of resin and broaches that were worse than Ratners.
Making resin casts was a creative and popular craft project in the days when i had so much time i was bored! A resin cast is formed when resin and a chemical catalyst are combined to form a hard, plastic-like material. These casts can be customized by pouring resin into molds, adding colors and glitter and embedding tokens. Apparently there are still people out there soing theses resin castings.
