I usually write about casting epoxy resin. Lately, I have been seeing a whole lot about Ice Resin, so I decided to do a Resin Chica 101 and bring the info to you!
Ice resin- is a clear resin that is also used for projects involving jewelry and paper.
What makes this resin different from the easy cast resin that I use for my projects? I honestly have not noticed very many differences and my research has indicated the same. The conclusion I draw is that it is a matter of preference, but I am leaning toward the difference being the "ice" like texture and look of the ice resin. Hence "Ice" in ice resin. I have also heard that it may be less odorous and not as harmful of a chemical, but don't quote me.
I am going to be working on a project using ice resin soon and I will tell you first hand what differences I notice right off the back.
In the meantime, check out the mother of all information for ice resin- http://www.iceresin.com/ for more info and cool picks as to what you can do with resin casting specific to ice resin. Let me know if you try it out yourself!
