A couple of new castings. One is a playing card for a Knurl GT pen kit and the other is a cross word puzzle for a Ultra Cigar pen kit. They cast using Liquid Diamonds resin.

Very cool - nicely done. May I ask how you seal the materials to keep the LD from infiltrating the images? I still have occasional problems with resin "staining" - usually on the ends. Terry

So far I have not had any problem with the LD staining the images. The
labels I print are on paper from OnLine Labels and is made for inkjet printers.
The playing card blank is an actual playing card, so they have a coating
on them already and the LD doesn't affect the image. Some people do
spray on a clear lacquer finish to seal the image.

Are you splitting the cards to make them thinner or wrapping them at full thickness?
