Amateur hobbyists can complete casting resin projects with little investment, however, should always practice with test projects first, especially if having never used casting resin. This is particularly important if casting sentimental pieces that are irreplaceable. There are minimal materials required. In addition, instructions and usage of the products are simplistic. Its beginner-friendly, but the process is fast paced (curing time is dependent on the type of resin you used) so preparation is extremely important. There are different types of casting resin so starting with an “easier” method is recommended for beginners.
