Have you ever wondered how to use a silicone mould for resin? When using PoxyArt Craft Resin you do not need to use any release agent in your mould. It’s that easy. Simply pour and unmould..

8 Steps to get the best result from silicone moulds:

  1. Ensure that your mould is clean, dry and has no pieces of dust or fluff stuck to the inside.
  2. Mix PoxyArt Craft Resin and Hardener 1:1 (Mix slowly but thoroughly for about 2-3 minutes).
  3. You know you have mixed thoroughly when you do not see anymore streaks in your cup. (add pigments if preferred)
  4. Slowly pour your mixture into your mould. It will prevent bubbles from forming.
  5. If you see any bubbles on the surface use a lighter/ torch to pop the bubbles from quite a distance, to ensure that you do not burn your silicone mould or resin. If you burn your mould, your resin piece will stick to your mould. You might end up tearing your mould to get your resin out, and no one wants that to happen.
  6. Cover your work with a box or container to ensure no dust lands on your resin piece.
  7. Now for patience! Wait 12-24 hours before unmoulding your resin piece. On a hotter day you might be able to unmould after 12 hours.
  8. After 12-24 hours you can easily unmould. Sphere’s or 3d shape moulds can be difficult to unmould, doing it under running water with dishwashing liquid makes it much easier.
