      Sorry, can’t find where to put this – someone redirect me if necessary. I have a silicone mold for making faceted round beads. The mold is 2″ x 3″ and the bead opening for the resin is 1/8″. I can’t get the resin in the mold. The beads come out “half full.” I use a pipette for filling and all that does is introduce air into the mold. I would appreciate any suggestions–before I throw the dumb thing away! Thanks for helping out a new member. Peggy
