Finding molds for resin casting for oddly shaped or unique items can be quite challenging, so making your own resin molds is the way to go! It’s also a perfect solution for replicating important items like a missing chess piece or a family heirloom.
You can create a mold for just about anything, even 3D shapes. There are several different products you can use to make molds, depending on what you’re looking to make of a mold of and what you’re planning to use it for. DIY molds don’t have to just be for resin casting, there are so many fun things you can make with your mold creations.
