Firing our ceramic kiln

Our kiln is hot. We fired to cone 06 which is about 1650 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the toys are cool, I will make silicone molds from each one so I can cast multiple resin toys. Check out How To Make Resin Toys.

How To Make Resin Toys Video 4: Black Rub

Black Rub is a paint technique where you cover a resin toy with black acrylic paint, then rub it off with a damp paper towel. You leave black paint in the deep areas to show of the detail of the toy. Black Rub gives the toy an antique look. Check out the rest of my videos on How To Make Resin Toys.

How To Make Resin Toys Video 3: Pouring Resin

Video series based on my book, How To Make Resin Toys by J.E.Moores. Here I show how each mold has its quirks. Because of air bubbles I have to shake, jiggle, and swirl some of my molds to get resin into all the trouble spots. This is why you have to design your original with gravity in mind. If your design does not go with the flow, your castings will have bubbles. See more videos of how to make resin toys.

How To Make Resin Toys Video 2: Go With The Flow

When designing your original art you have to consider gravity. The liquid resin can only go where gravity will take it. Complex shapes require Block Molds with proper vents. This is why it is good to start with a simple shape that is easy to mold and cast when starting out. A tapered “lump” will cast easy in a Glove Mold. More videos on How To Make Resin Toys.
