Working With Resin

Working With Resin

Due to the intricate detail of cast resin items and the nature of the resin hand-casting process, it is highly likely that a few small defects may be apparent in the final casts such as bubbles or mould lines/flashing. This is an unfortunate result which cannot be helped and can be easily remedied with a small amount of modelling putty and a hobby knife/sandpaper. Indeed, anyone familiar with resin products and some metal casts, even from large companies, will already be familiar with the clean up required.

Always be sure to wear a dust mask or respirator when sanding or drilling polyurethane resins.

Before assembly or painting, items should be washed thoroughly in warm (not hot!) soapy water to remove any mould contaminants.

Any assembly required can be done with superglue or a two-part epoxy adhesive. Do not attempt to use polystyrene or plastic cements as they will not bond polyurethane resin. Any gaps can be filled with an epoxy modelling putty such as Miliput or Kneadatite.

Sometimes, thin parts can become distorted or bent. These can easily be straightened by holding the piece under a hot tap for a few seconds before straightening the piece. Dip the item in cold water to re-harden the resin.

Painting resin is similar to any other plastic miniature. Apply a coat of primer before painting with acrylics or enamels as required.
