Norski wont sell direct , you have to go through mitre10 or other stockists. I  tried the product they stock at bunnings but it was horid, really bubbly no matter how hard I tried.

 I am interested  in any good mould supplies. preferably someone who will make injection moulds if I supply my own blanks. I have emailed heaps of companies but had no luck.

The meltable rubber for moulding isnt that great , every time I have tried it I get loads of bubbles no mater how  hard I try and the liquid latex takes forever to set in layers. grrr. I have been keeping an eye out of ice cube trays as well. Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Here is another place that has jewelry resin:

I bought some bezels and resin from this woman at a craft show about 2 years ago and it's still sitting in my drawer waiting to be used ...!  Not enough hours in the day and too many crafts I want to try!
I have just ordered some blank adjustable rings from her to have a play with. 
I know you can get polymer clay molds from here:
http://www.zigzag.co.nz
but not sure if they work with resin as well as polymer.  The owner, Petra (she's in Christchurch) is very helpful and you could e-mail her to check I suppose.

I checked those out too, doesn't look like they could be used for resin... but if you have any joy let us know!  resinobsession on ebay has some good molds.

I am so annoyed with myself. I bought a chocolate mudcake to use as the top of my daughters wedding cake just after xmas, the cake happend to be sitting in a solid flexi plastic tray that would be perfect for a square trivet or placemat mould.. I have managed to rescue it but if I had have known then what I know now. Would have bought a bunch of them.

This resin thing is so addictive. I find myself cruising through plastics shops checking everything out!! You just never know what might be useful lol. I am sure some of the shop owners must think I need medicating lol.

Spotlight (in Dunedin, and I'm sure in their other stores around the country) has quite a bit of resin stuff surprisingly. Seem to be more aimed toward making door knobs for cabinets than jewellery but eh.

I got two 125ml bottles of "super liquid gloss" (misleading name) - one hardener and one resin - for about $15.00. It works PERFECTLY!  Cool

Ooh, thanks. Good to know. I have a spotlight voucher to use as I spent so much there over the weekend...

I made some resin fridge magnets a year a couple of years ago - filled with different kinds of candy - and only the m & m magnets went a bit weird and the candy started to disintegrate. Liquorice allsorts and jelly snakes were all good though.
