I am wanting to venture into the world of resin but I figured id try and get some pointers since im a struggling college student and dont want to spend money on something to find out there was a better way of going about it. Any suggs and/ or tips appreciated greatly thanx!!! Grin

I was going to use this brand for the resin since they sell it at the local craft store down the street from me is it a good kind to use?

Envirotex Lite Coating Epoxy Resin Kit

I was going to get these 3 molds since they had a variety of shapes for me to play with, is there anywhere else besides this site and alpineimport that has good molds. Huh I thought these looked easy since it said you just pop them out

and for the colorants would you recommend the dry powder mix or the liquid dye stuff?

Actually, there's this whole topic on resin over in the trinkets and jewelry section, under discussion and questions (I think that's what it's called.) The topic is huuuuge so you should be able to find your answers there! Smiley

Good luck Smiley
