Will the cured resin just fall out easily when I turn it upside down? (The mold is hard plastic) Or will it make the resin cloudy? May 17, 2014 at 8:58 am #1546 Katherine SwiftGuest Hi Lauren, Unfortunately, Ive never been able to get Vaseline to work as a mold release for resin. I hear thought that it works well for a mold release for metal clay in the plastic molds. Author Posts Viewing 1 reply thread The topic ‘Vaseline as a mold release’ is closed to new replies.
