DIY: Creating Knobs with FastCast™ Resin

Today I am going to share how easy it is to make "Knobs" using our newest product FastCast™ . This past Tuesday, I created knob molds using Silicone Putty...you can check out that post by clicking here.



Materials:
  • FastCast™ 
  • Molds
  • Mixing cups 
  • Stir sticks
  • Screws, for the back of the knobs
  • Cardboard
  • Pliers
Project Instructions: 

Before mixing FastCast™, cut 2 small pieces of cardboard, poke a hole into the center and place the screw for the knob through layering the cardboard.  Test it on your mold for depth.

Measure our equal parts of A and B.  Stir for 30 seconds.  Then, pour into a second mixing cup and stir for another 30 seconds.

Pour immediately into molds.

as FastCast™ sets in 10 minutes, so you want to pour as soon as you have it mixed.

Place the prepared screw into the center of the mold, using something on either side to keep it at the correct height.  Let set for 10 minutes.

Using the pliers to hold the screw in place, remove the knob.  

Attach the knob in place...

These are quick and easy to create with FastCast™.  

I left these white to show how quick and easy it is to create knobs, although FastCast™ can be painted if a color is desired.
