Hi,

Can anyone help me out with finding craft resin i.e. to pour into moulds, and also to use as a sealer.

I'm in Dunedin, and tracked down a resin manufacturer who suggested I go to Mitre 10 to purchase their resin.  But Mitre 10 don't have the clear craft resin.

I'm going to follow up with the manufacturing company again on Monday, but just thought I'd post a message to see if anyone else uses it and can recommend a supplier.

Cheers Grin

Try ArtZone - on Hanover st.
I'm pretty sure I saw some in there.

At least - I saw something like resin...

Goodluck, and let us know how it turns out!  I'm a bit scared of resin, but it's really cool.

Thanks for the replies .... I did pop into ArtZone on Hanover street (a lady at Mitre10 also recommended them).  They have a little two part resin kit.  A little pricey though, so I didn't get it....not yet anyway.  If I can't source it elsewhere I'll go back to them.

or just go to the craft category and search "resin"

Hey guys!

I'm also in Dunedin and also after resin. I saw this awesome bracelet (on craftster?) with little individual M&Ms folded into round resin 'blobs' then linked together in a chain. Would be so cool to make!

I use Norski Kleer Kast (or whatever it s properly called lol, I got it from trademe from the same person in the link

It's not the 2 part resin most people talk about but it does the job.  They only have big tins of it on right now, but i bought a 1 litre, you could ask if they could list one.

Also i think you will find that most Mitre 10's are distributors for Norski, they don't actually keep it in stock but can order the resin and also molds from Norski if you ask.  Also if you email Norski they will send you a list of distributors in your area.  They can also send a list of molds, they can send you pictures of the molds to, but they send a list, then you can ask to see picture of the ones you're interested in.
