You'll also need
- Something to add texture to your Dichro-ISH Films. The video tutorial below shows a few options, some done with an embossing machine, some done with just texture envelopes, and others simply done by hand. Here's a link to the texture tools I used in this video.
- A pen to trace your shapes with the Cropping Template that comes with your mold
- Sharp Scissors
- Whatever findings you'd like to turn these creations into jewelry, keychains, magnets, drawer pulls, etc.
- Paper Towels
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.
