Welcome to dickblick
Pour Clear Polyester Casting Resin into any mold to make a paperweight, or sculpture. Casting resin is a crystal clear, low viscosity liquid that requires mixing with a catalyst to become rock hard (purchase catalyst separately). It cures to a smooth glossy transparency at room temperature. Use of a mold release is not necessary for flexible plastic or rubber molds.
Note — Casting resin has only a 6-month shelf life. Store in a cool place.
Clear, colorless liquid, very low viscosity. Usually added in quantities of 0.5% to 3.0% of weight of resin for curing. Store in a cool place, keep tightly closed. Purchase ½ oz for a pint or quart of resin, and 1 oz for a gallon of resin.

Good product, on time delivery
from Raleigh, NC
I use this resin for embedding insects in display blocks for education/outreach. It is clear as promised, cures well according to instructions (a little slower than anticipated but reasonable), and releases easily from silicone molds. I sometimes get a few bubbles in my finished blocks--nothing catastrophic but a pressure pot (which I haven't tried) might help get rid of those last few bubbles.
Easy to make paperweights
By Theatre Friend
from Florence, SC
Created a paperweight as cast gifts for theatre friends. Easy to use and make. Be careful in your choice of stirring cups/glass as the product will eat through some plastics. Follow instructions and you will be fine. Easy to use. Gift complete in less than 12 hours from start to fully ready (with only about an hour of work.)

from SARASOTA, FL
I used this product to create trays with stones in them. It mixed easily, it poured easily, and it's set up quickly. My project was about 14" x 12" and an inch deep.

Castin' Craft Clear Polyester Casting Resin
It's always lovely to do business with Dick Blick, The service is wonderful, the variety of products is great and always arrive quickly, and I can usually find what I want here when I can find it no where else. The product most recently purchased was the catalyst for a clear cast resin. As a polymer clay artist I have occasion to add other mixed media items to finish a piece. The project I used this product in was a 10 inch mermaid, hot tubbing in an over sized coffee cup. She was complete and needed "water." I could find the resin, but not the catalyst. Fortunately, Dick Blick carries it, so I could complete the project with minimal delay. The catalyst is exactly as advertised and worked perfectly with the resin I purchased locally. Can't ask for anything more than that.

A product with a thousand uses.
By Nicknames are silly! I am David Hargis.
from Little Rock, Arkansas
Over 40 years ago, I first used a polymer resin over a Plasticine clay sculpture, and it is rigid and shining to this day. You can mix this product with liquid acrylics to paint atmospheres in painting. For instance, fine silver mixed with this product will create a foggy early morning background -- but you have to work fast, because the hardening process is hard to predict. This product is much better than ordinary fiberglass resin, because it is more refined and very clear.

Standard Quick-Drying Poly Resin
from Cleveland, OH
I use this resin on a daily basis to create assemblage pieces and jewelry and it's a decent, fast-setting poly resin. Sets very clear with no yellowing unlike some other resins I have used. The odor is a bit much for some people in confined spaces so I recommend using this in a well-ventilated studio space, basement, or garage. I also recommend getting some acetone to use for clean-up.

Making certain crafts for our gift shop. Just what I needed.
quality abounds with casting resin and catalyst
By Denture repair the dentists wouldn't do
from Chico CA
I used the materials to cast teeth into my denture and it works beautifully. It set quickly and hardened enough to sand it in 4 hours. It is kind of smelly while working it, but the best stuff always is a little smelly during the blending stage. You can't go wrong using Dick Blicks products. For Sure!
