      This question comes through email by Lauren:

      I read somewhere that you can use vaseline to grease your molds, is that correct?  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?

      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.
