This is the first video totally dedicated to pouring resin pen blanks. I use Alumilite, so I wanted to show my process for pouring pen blanks in a mold. I also show what to expect when using Alumilite White and adding dyes.
I’ve created this section of my website to be dedicated to the basics of resin casting. In the future, I plan to redo the 101 series to make the steps more comprehensive and just to increase the quality overall. I will also be adding “advanced” courses that will be focused on specific casting techniques and/or projects. My goal is to offer the most comprehensive casting tutorials out there!
