How to cast resin parts - update
The following photo shows the home-cast resin windows fitted in to a partially built 'weather board' house. In the left hand window casting you can see an air bubble, however the bubble is in the back of the casting and to add some depth to the finished casting I have backed it with 1mm thick plastic card so the bubble is not a problem.
The structure is built over 3mm plastic card with sliced lollipop sticks (or coloured craft sticks) super glued in place. When the whole building is cast in resin, I will include another photo, but for now I hope that this simple technique will inspire others to try resin casting.
