Prop: Live From The Shop – Casting with Sparkles and Powders

Britt casts Hearthstone symbols with glow powder, metal powder, and sparkles! The Punished Props shop is now contaminated with glitter.

The resin trapped air bubbles under the large glitter pieces. Next time, I’ll try and tap out more of the loose glitter before pouring.¬†Plus, I forgot to tap the mold after pouring, which may have helped free the air bubbles. I also want to try this technique with Smooth-Cast 325. That resin is designed to stay the color of the tint you add, since the resin normally cures transparent (instead of curing white, like Smooth-Cast 300).
