This is my first time experimenting with resin. What I want to create is a glow in the dark version of preserved flower in resin.
Based on this thread, it's possible to create glow in the dark flowers. So, in order to keep it lasting a long time I am planned to make an ornament like this:
However I want to use a glow in the dark flower instead.
Sadly, given my condition, getting my hands on the materials such as resin and the glow in the dark paint is not easy, so waste (or do "let's just try it first") them is hardly an option. Therefore, I want to make sure that every step that I'll take basically works as I can't afford to experiment.
Because this is an amateur resin casting project I want to do this with as basic items as I can. I've been exploring the internet, but it seems the most common item do cast a resin is a silicone mold. Can it be done with either of these containers?
Because so far the only limitation that I have found (based on my limited research) is "don't use a wax container".
