I checked out that website and it's going to be a huge help. Whether of not I acquire the supplies from a local store or online, this provides me a great reference not only for prices but the range of products available as well.
That sample casting you provided not only looks great, it was inspiring. It has me thinking of creating types of items (in resin) that I had never even thought of putting together before now.


As I forge ahead with my first project (I've spent over 4 hours working on the two sculpts today) I will be certain to keep everyone's advise in mind, including patience. Before I started this post I was somewhat apprehensive about doing these projects (in resin), now I'm totally psyched about it!

The wealth of information provided in this forum was not entirely unexpected. That statement makes it no less phenomenal, or appreciated.

Thanks again, everyone.

FIRST STEP: Check with your FLGS or FLHS! MOST Hobby Shops especially will be overjoyed to have a customer who comes in and asks them to order stuff! If ANY of their Distributors carry what you need, they WILL order it for you, just to get and keep your business!! Or at least, any GOOD Hobby Shop will do this.
Beyond that, look in craft shops such as Michael's or A.C. Moore.
If THEY don't have/can't order (or don't exist in your area), check the Yellow Pages. Look under Molding and Casting Supplies, or Plastic Resins, or something similar.
If NONE of these solutions help, then you may have to get a credit card and go on-line.

Good luck, and see ya!

I can't give you any information on local "brick-and-mortar" locations unless you are in the Toronto area.


Perhaps if you gave some general indication of your geography, it is possible someone in this forum may be able to provide specific retailers in your area.

You could even add this [i]general location information[/i] into your forum profile, so other forum members will understand where you are coming from on all issues/discussions that you participate in as well.

If you are not comfortable with providing even a regional description of your location, then listing a country would be quite helpful in most cases, as well.

Just a suggestion.

You can do a google for resin +casting supplies and so on.

I order from here:
www.hobbyengineering.com/SectionBM.html#CatBMSUPPLY

I like the Alumilite products but they tend to be on the expensive side.

Make sure to follow the directions for all resin casting supplies when mixing. Do not add or subtract the mixing compounds especially the mold rubber (i.e. too little catalyst and it ends up like taffy which is useless, too much and it becomes hard as a brick)
