I am finally going to attempt my first resin project(s) this week.  There are a few things I want to make, but one of them might look better if it was painted AFTER curing.  Is this even possible or will it not stick?  Any ideas? 

I am making a little pug face (surprise, surprise) from a mold that I am making from my clay form.  Due to the round shape of the pug face it is impossible to pour the black and beige colors separately.  So painting it after curing would be the best way to get the color detail that I am looking for.

Thanks!  I'll definitely post next week and show off (or laugh about) my first attempts at resin.  I have a feeling the first try is going to be more of a learning experience than anything else!

I've never painted resin, but I'm a firm believer of try anything regarding craftiness!  So, definitely post pictures if you do it.  I was always interested in this method but haven't had time to really try it.  My only suggestion would be to make sure you seal it. 
I would think you could make your cast, paint over it and once it's dried, seal it with resin. 
Good luck!
