I’m hoping someone out there might have some bright ideas…I’d like
to make some colored, nearly (but not quite) opaque plastic shapes
and assume there’s a product out there that can do this, but am not
sure what it might be/how to proceed.
I’ve scoured the archives and it sounds as though ColorIt might
work? I’d like the finished pieces to be about 1/4" deep and of
various shapes, which also brings me to ask how I might make molds
for them. I’m just one gal and a bench so don’t have much fancy
equipment; no moldmaking machinery, etc…is this at all possible?
I’m not currently planning to have any metal in these at all,
although if need be I might have to change the design to incorporate
a metal base…I’d definitely prefer not having metal sides, which
is what I could see being the most useful design alteration (I could
then simply make the shapes in metal and fill them with epoxy), but
if I have to go that route I can. If that were the case, what
epoxy/resin might work?
Thanks in advance for sharing anything that might help me get at
least to the experimentation step of this process! And, of course,
for the amazing amount I learn from this list every single day.
