It is really not that hard to do. Just mix some of the resin stuff with a few drops of the catalyst, pour into molds and either add little accents now, or wait till it is kinda dry to add them, then add a second layer. The niext day they were done. I kept them outside because the stuff is super toxic and it has been warm. I sprayed them with some shiny varnish stuff so they wouldn't be sticky. It's really not that hard. Good luck and thanks for the compliments!

Did you use "Mold Release" ? I just got sushi molds from Japan, and I don't want to risk ruining them. Cheesy

  Stifflersmom - I didn't use any kind of mold release. The things I used for molds were pretty easy to just pop the resin out. I've never used it. Sounds like it's worth a try though.

I would definitly not do it in your little apartment. It is pretty bad. I did it on the front porch of my dorm room but the window was open, the first time, and we were smelling it for days - My roommates weren't too happy about it.. This time I did it on my back porch at home, and that was much better.
