About our resin casting services
Resin is a very versatile material and can be used in a wide range of applications. Whether you are looking for a completely finished product or a raw casting for you to apply your own finishes, our resin cold casting techniques can be made to your individual specification.
Here we will briefly describe the process for our resin casting service. Firstly a master copy is required; this can be either supplied by you or we can assist in the design and origination of your master copy. A silicon rubber mould is then taken from the master copy – this creates the production mould (these moulds are relatively low cost and a consideration as injection molding alternatives). This mould is then filled with the liquid resin mixture. When the cast has gelled and set, it is removed from the mould. It will then be ready for the finishing process.
There are many approaches to the finishes that you can achieve on a resin cast. We use a wide variety of stains and paints which are applied to the surface of the casting, or we can use fillers, pigments and metal powders to create an effect embedded in the resin mixture. Another popular option is bronze resin casting – also referred to as resin cold cast bronze (which is an economic alternative to solid bronze). This has a coating of true bronze powder on the outside of the casting.
