ok, so i have used the polyester version of castin craft since the beginning, but last night they had some easy cast on the shelf, and i thought what the hell, why not....

OOOMMMMGGGG i freakin love easy cast, no sticky backs!!!! and you can cast deeper than 1/8 of an inch with the easy cast epoxy resin, so its ideal for the pendants i love to make!

its my new love, i just need to find in in a larger amount...

does anyone out there have a different opinion?

which do you like better?

I have used easy cast and ♥ it..so low odor..so easy to measure out and great to pour..

I have found..

and am loving that even more..I have been going between the two and have officially been using the enviro lite..my pieces cured with NO bubbles and the pieces were super smooth without sealer though I still use it to make it more transparent and jewel like..

good luck..glad it works well for ya..

Strange, it says you can find it at hobbylobby, but I've never seen it...unless they hide it in the back like they always do to the stuff I really need... >_>

they probably do hide it in the back..thats where they keep all the good stuff..hehe

I dont have a hobby lobby near me but at the AC Moore that I have they keep it in 2 different places..at the wood section-where all of the non finished wood pieces are..and the glue/sealer section..

I think the craft store is onto the fact that people are making resin jewerly..I have seen a section of resinmaking  stuff popping up right near the polymer clay area..

So you're using it like resin?  I didn't even think of that.  Does it come out really glossy?

Good to know about the pour-on EnviroTex Light.  I have a big box of that and haven't used it yet.  Will try it out.
