Resin casting


#1

I’ve been playing with some jewelry ideas made from my artwork, and
I want to use resin casting. Can you suggest a book or website that
describes this? I’ve done some web searching, and looked through
the Ganoskin site, but I’ve not been able to find what I’m looking
for. Basically, I’m trying to figure out casting beads and using
bezels (term?). Thanks. I appreciate it.

Hi Alan R. Kelchner,

You might want to check out a book by Kathie Murphy titled Resin
Jewelry. The ISBN is 0-87349-619-1 and the price listed on the book is
$24.95. The publisher is Krause Publications (krause.com) ,
888-457-2873. You can probably find a discounted copy on line.

Price: $17.46

Media: Paperback
ISBN/ASIN : 0873496191

It’s the best resin jewelry making book I’ve come across so far. It
covers types of resin, mixing, molding, casting, finishing,
coloring, embedding and filling. It contains beautiful photographs
of process and examples of resin jewelry.
