    Default Question regarding Resin in Delft clay?

    Hello. Just a quick question. Will clear resin work ok in Delft clay? I dont want to use molten metal for this paticular project. The reason I want to use Delft clay is for the fine detail etc.

    A silicone mould would be a better solution - resin is going to stick to the clay (assuming it doesn't have any interactions preventing it hardening...) and require more cleanup.

    Delft clay is basically wet sand, so it will bond to resin creating a fancy nail file, that is if it isn't too viscous to pour in the first place.

    If you browse here you can buy what takes your fancy: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=si...CbSk8wfmxaeoBg

    It needs to be confined in some sort of frame or box. Dennis.

    I wonder if a vulcanised mould would work if you sprayed it with lots of release spray ?
