How-To:
This tutorial covers many projects using textured Dichro-ISH Films, these beautiful creations included.

Before mixing your resin, get your shapes and layers all cut and ready.  Mix and pour a layer of clear resin into your mold/s, then slide in your Film Shapes one at a time, smushing them down to the bottom with your Mixing Wand to remove any bubbles and air pockets before adding the next layer.  Repeat, then let your castings set up for at least 12 hours before demolding to avoid fingerprints.
