Make a Silicone Rubber Mold – Carmi’s Resin Craft Blog

Several months ago I posted some pieces of resin cast jewelry on our blog. I also posted the same jewelry onto Pinterest where they have been repined numerous times. This brought me to the conclusion that more education around casting in resin could be of interest to some of you?
Am I right?

Learning from Carmi

As you have read in prior posts, I am a huge fan of Carmi’s Resin Craft Blog. If you aren’t already following her, I highly suggest doing so by subscribing to her blog. I have learned tons of stuff from Carmi and am very inspired by her creations and education.

With Carmi’s permission, I’ve scoured her archives to share with you the adventures and exploration that she has discovered while working with molds and resin. Here are some of the posts that will be most prudent (I just finished a series of Jane Austin videos, so excuse my proper English). She starts with what went wrong and builds on her experience to get it right. Hopefully we will all have an easier time thanks to her authenticity and sharing.

      Thank you for the call out. I think I will repost this. There is a lot of great helpful information here isn’t there.

      Yes, Carmi does a great job on her tutorials. Did you read any of Carmi’s full tutorials and did you implement any of her tips?

    I have been a follower of Carmi’s Resin Craft Blog but didn’t try the tutorial she shared on her blog about silicone rubber molding. It is nice to see someone experimented with her tutorial and got a great result.
    Now I am going to try it.
