Bendy resin

In the past few weeks I have been making a lot more resin pieces with new molds that I have gotten. I have been using easy cast resin, and have not had any issues with this brand until now. I have been noticing that my pieces have been coming out really bendy. At first I thought it was because they had not fully cured. I had put them to the side and made a mental note to check on them in another day or so.

Making another batch and colored and poured them into Β their molds, nothing out of the ordinary. When I went to release them, I noticed that this batch was also bendy. I was surprised because with my crazy home life I wasn’t able to de-mold them until a few days later.

Puzzled I went and made a third batch. I colored some of the resin, poured the colored and uncolored resin into molds, and also domed the back of a few bendy pendants. I was hopeful that this would help keep them more solid. Also wanting to find out if the colorants that I was using was the cause of the resin not being able to fully cure. Β When I went to release them a few days later,they all came out bendy.Even the pendants that got domed

The end result of my bendy resin batch is I am going to switch back to another resin that I was using before hand. Not sure what I will do with the bendy pendants, but it will be epic!!!

 

SIDE NOTE: My etsy shop will be closed for a few months. The reason for this is so I can create some more items. I plan on re-opening Β in June. TheΒ few items up at the moment will stay until they get bought or their listing time expires.
