      Ok… I used a casting resin product to pour for 2 A5 notebook covers in a silicone mold. Well, the resin I used still had a lot of bubbles and I’m not pleased with what I see even after using the heat gun.

      I also purchased 2 A5 Acrylic Notebook Covers that I think would come out better. My question is do I still use a casting resin or what? Also I wanted to know if I cover the A5 with heat transfer vinyl or print the image from my color printer can I still seal it with resin for that shiny professional look instead of using the silicone molds?

      Thank you…

      Hi Rose,

      If you’re using a mold, yes, you need to use a casting resin. This article will help you with bubbles: https://www.resinobsession.com/resin-frequently-asked-questions/resin-bubbles/

      If you add a vinyl image to resin, yes, you can cover it with a doming resin to give it a shiny finish. This is the one to use: https://shop.resinobsession.com/products/resin-obsession-crystal-doming-epoxy-resin-jewelry-grade

      Hi Rose,
      I had a similar question to yours regarding doming an image I’ve printed. I’m thinking I need to seal it before demoing, but if mod-podge is water-based, I presume that will be problematic. What alternative seals can I use on plain printed paper I wish to embed in resin?
      Any advice appreciated!

      Hi Vanessa, you can use mod podge to seal your papers. You need to be sure they’re dry before using in resin.

      Otherwise, you can use packing tape. I show how in option 2 in this article: https://www.resinobsession.com/resin-frequently-asked-questions/how-to-seal-paper-for-resin/
