About this Event
IMPORTANT NOTE: Typically I will create a 2-part dice making class the following week after this class for the full end to end dice making experience. If you can, please sign up for that class set as well. And definitely sign up for part 2 when signing up for this class.
In this class you will learn how to make a 2-part silicone mold for a 7 piece RPG dice set. Additionally, we will review various kinds of project resins, their uses, mold making materials, and techniques for resin casting. This class will get you signed off on the Resin equipment.
I will have dice sets for use as the mold masters, however if you have a favorite set of dice that you would like to duplicate, please bring them
The class is split into 2 separate lessons due to the nature of silicone cure times:
Part 1- (2 hours) Cover resin equipment use and safety. Prep and make mold part 1.
Part 2- (1 hour) Prep and make mold part 3.
