How to bend curing resin into a curve shape

This video is a follow on from the last video where I bent the resin into a wave shape. I wanted to see how the resin looked in a half circle shape and wanted to have a flame design creeping up the sides.

The resin was once again poured into a silicone mat (size 39 x 29 cm) and left to cure for approximately 8-9 hours before bending it around the circular shape, in this case, it was on a roll of bubble wrap. It was then left to cure overnight.

Materials required to create this piece:

  • Silicone Mat – Pet Drip Mat (or create your own mould using foam board)
  • Resin
  • Pigment to colour the resin (ink, paint or powder will do)
  • Acrylic Gems or Stones
  • Round Object (for moulding, I used bubble wrap)
  • Knife (for trimming)
  • Heat Gun or Blow Torch (for zapping the bubbles)

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did creating it.
