One of the most satisfying parts of the resin crafting process is the demolding. This is the part when you get to remove the resin from the silicone mold once the project is complete. There’s always that sense of excitement and mystery about how your new resin piece is going to look once it comes out.
Hi creative friends! I’m Jane from Sustain My Craft Habit, a DIY craft and home decor website I write with my sister Sonja. We’ve been fortunate to work with resin over the past three years and have been able to share many of those projects here on the Resin Crafts Blog in that time as well as over on our own blog sustainmycrafthabit.com.
About a year and a half ago I just happened to come across some fun videos of resin projects being taken out of their molds. I was completely hooked! There’s just something so enjoyable about seeing the pieces coming out of the mold. Each resin piece is truly one-of-a-kind.
Since then I’ve tried whenever possible to video record my own resin projects as I take them out of the mold. Recently I collated the videos and put them in a compilation video over on our YouTube channel. We’d love for you to subscribe as more and more we are posting resin videos and tutorials such as seashore resin handled serving boards and DIY watercolor Christmas tree resin pendant.
I hope you enjoy this resin demolding video as much as I enjoy watching them.
Here are the links to the tutorials for all of the projects shown in the video:
- DIY fall leaf resin purse charms
- DIY decorative mason jar lids with resin flower toppers
- Glittering cupcake keychains
- Pressed flower pendants
- Resin flower stitch markers for knitting
- Acorn napkin rings
- Monogram resin zipper pullers
As I mentioned in the video, there are different types of molds that can be used. You can even create your DIY resin molds!
So which of these have been your favorite resin demolding projects? Should we record more of these videos in the future?
If you are on Instagram be sure to follow us and let us know that you’re coming over from the Resin Crafts Blog.
Happy resin demolding, friends!
