EasyCast Fish Skeleton - Part One

How adorable are these fish?
They are not even finished.
 I look online all the time for interesting silicone baking and ice cube molds that I can pour resin into.  This skeleton fish mold caught my eye. (I found it on Amazon) 
I began my project by pouring a little clear EasyCast into the head area.  Clear resin always highlights what is underneath it and I wanted the fish face to glow a little.
 The next day I mixed a larger batch of EasyCast and added red and yellow opaque pigment to it.
 I almost missed a bone.  I watched my resin settle and then let my mold cure overnight.
Here are my fish 24 hours later.  I will let them continue curing flat on my work table and while that is happening do something special with the eyes.
Results tomorrow!

  2. Those are so cute! I'm sure things can get messy sometimes, what do you do to get the goopy resin off your hands?

  3. That is another great reason to always wear gloves. You should wear them no matter what resin you mix. Plus, with the gloves on, I am more aware that I am working with resin.

  4. I've been playing around with these kind of molds too. They are SO MUCH FUN! I think I have about 10 different ones now & my friends send me wild ones when they find them too. Can't wait to see what you do. I need to get some of the pigments so I can have color!
