I will be buying another brand for my next attempt.

Easy Cast has a slight yellow tint to it, Ice Resin is crystal clear like looking through glass.

8oz is not a lot, but works great for small projects like jewelry, etc.

First off, don't be scared off by magazine articles that describe the process as being super difficult. It's really very easy. I'm not sure why most bead magazines (where ice resin is trending now) make it such a big deal.

In any case, this is a two part epoxy that you mix in equal parts. For stuff like jewelry, you will be using only tiny amounts, and it's pretty hard to screw up. The first thing I did was enclose a photo in a bezel. Trick 1: use a photocopy from a laser printer, not an ink jet (not sure why but it matters). Using your printer's options, lighten up the picture somewhat more than you'd think...it will look darker in the bezel. I cut the photo strip of paper to fit, put a tiny bit of stick glue to hold it in place, and settled it at the bottom of the bezel, making sure it was all the way down. Next, I mixed the two parts (only about one lid full of each), mixed in a plastic cup with chopstick, and poured in. Trick 2: pour it where you can leave it so you don't have to move it and slosh it around. It must be level!

It's slightly thicker than nail polish. It does take longer to dry than the product directions said. Even 48 hours in it was still sticky. Trick 3: use a tiny pin, not your finger, to test for cure (otherwise you get a thumb print). Even at that late stage though, the surface slowly evens out.

I've used it several times since, namely in putting vintage photos inside rings and spaces on copper jewelry. On deep sets, I usually fill it halfway with resin first, wait 3 days, then add the photo or object and add a new batch of resin on top. That way I think it will cure more securely.

Problems: some people get air bubbles...this has yet to happen to me. Some have their embedded objects float up...

I wanted to start making resin jewelry. I got this resin and a mold. It's easy to use, just follow directions. I have a lot of fun making jewelry pieces with stickers & sprinkles... I also use paper by printing designs or using things I find.

Tips:
>> Make sure to measure carefully, if not mixed right the pieces will come out gooey and will not harden.
>> No need for mold release if using a mold, I just pop the jewelry right out. I have the 'Environmental Technology Castin' Craft EasyCast Resin Jewelry Mold, 11 Popular Jewelry Shapes On One Tray' ($6.95 on Amazon). Sometimes it's tough to get them out, but just let the pieces dry a bit longer, they shrink somewhat in the drying process. I never have a problem.
>> Work in a well ventilated area. I got headaches working in my home without the windows open or a fan running - I also moved into a larger room to help and now I have no problem.
>> When using paper, fabrics, or candies make sure to coat them in Mod Podge before setting them in the resin. Mod Podge is like glue and in doing this their colors will not bleed. I use Mod Podge CS11302 Original 16-Ounce Glue, Matte Finish ($7.99 on Amazon)
>> To avoid bubbles when setting pieces, mix the resin and dip the piece(s) in it before setting it in the mold. I mix a small amount of resin and pour a very thin layer in the mold, letting it harden for a few hrs or until it's sticky, gooey sticky. I then mix another small amount of resin and dip the piece(s) in that resin. I then pour some of that newly mixed resin in the mold with the sticky resin and add the piece(s) I am setting to the newly mixed resin I just added.
>> Polishing pieces to me is pretty much unnecessary. I do however trim the edges with scissors and sometimes file them with a nail block - the four sided nail blocks found in drug stores. This smooths the edges out. The pieces come out of the mold shiny enough.

Enjoy!

Verified Purchase
This is actually a great product for the price. It's easy to mix, just make sure you follow the instructions carefully. Don't use anything that you want to use later while mixing (only use things that you are going to throw away) and don't make the mistake of washing out anything in your sink, it will leave a horrible film in your sink. Oops. But the product is great!

I thought I would give this product a go again, since I didn't have time to wait for my order of Ice Resin to come in, well comparing the two together, Ice Resin wins. Ice Resin is much easier to mix, it is still a 1:1 ratio, but once Ice Resin has been mixed for 3 minutes, that's it. You can wait 5 minutes for the bubbles to de-gas that may have been created while you were mixing. Whereas with Easy Cast, you mix for one minute, pour into another container and mix for another minute, just one extra step I can truly live without. (And creating more waste than I want.)

Also with Ice Resin, even though it is a 1:1 ratio mix, it is forgiving and will still cure even if your mix is off. Just a bit and not a lot is what I am suggesting.

Finishing results there is a difference. They both set up the same, cure in the same time frame, but when it comes the look and clarity, big difference, well to me anyway. Easy Cast has a slight yellow tint to it, Ice Resin is crystal clear like looking through glass. And I will try to get a photo up showing the differences I have noticed.

Easy Cast is a wonderful product, I am just not satisfied with the end result compared to Ice Resin.
