EastCast Tips and Inspiration - Post Three

My EasyCast hearts turned out just perfect!
 These castings were hard to pre-judge.  I just kept adding vintage metal letters, dried flower, glitter glue, opalites and paint to my first clear layer of resin.
 The rose was a test.  I was not sure if it would work with the letters.  
 When I popped the castings out of the mold they looks really pretty.
When molded pieces are this good I do not like to drill holes into them.
I prefer to glue bails to the reverse. (bails shown in picture)
The bails make them easy to hang, as I did, on to my necklace.

  1. Do you use mold release in the molds?

    1. In soft silicone molds I usually do not. I do test them all first and foremost to make sure they release easily.

  2. Hi Carmi,
    These turned out beautifully! Question:do the hearts have a faceted perimeter from the mold? I can't quite tell from the pics..they are so amazingly clear, I know it must be a challenge to photograph some of these (that's a compliment!). If those are facets, wow, neat!
