Casting Alumilite Resin in PVC Molds

– Posted in: Casting 101

Show Notes:

PVC pipe is a cheap and super simple way to cast Alumilite. In this video, I cover some of the basics on how to use PVC and what you need to know when casting Alumilite in PVC.

Silicone plugs work very well and are much quicker than tape. It’s an added expense, but I feel it’s totally worth the investment. They’re reusable, and take 2 seconds to put in and take out. Here’s a source I found on eBay for them: http://goo.gl/qBxuY8

Hey Ramon, great to hear from a fellow Nevadan! Silicone plugs are what I usually use and they’ve worked great for me, so I never really needed to try anything else. I’m sure I’ll try the caps out some day though
