Best Casting Resin to Make Jewellery?

I'd like to make resin jewellery (bangles, pendants, rings, etc) using silicone moulds.

Can anyone please recommend a clear resin that doesn't yellow and doesn't have a very strong smell?

Thanks in advance. :)

    I really wish I could help. I want to fill a table top with resin and figured the left overs could make jewellery - I've even bought molds.

    Figured if I commented it's remind me to check back to read the suggestions when they hopefully flood in.

    I bought them on wish.

    Word of advice. Look for for the same sets at cheaper prices. Pretty sure they're even the same sellers as the same pictures are used. Can save a bomb. Also postage can differ.

    Hi ladies,

    I have a lot of experience of working with resin over the years. The best resin I have worked with is Little Windows. It is an American site but she ships to the UK. By far the easiest to use in terms of mixing, pouring, curing etc. She also offers loads of videos on her site and is so helpful if you should email her any queries/issues.

    Another alternative is Easycast. I did use that for a long time but it would sometimes bubble badly. You really need to make sure the room you are working in is at an optimum temperature. It needs to be warm, otherwise the resin will cloud and not go off properly.

    For the lady wanting to coat a table top you need to use Envirotex Lite which is specific for that application. You don't want to use a casting resin.

    I have lots of new, unused moulds if you are interested? I am looking to have a clear out. So please drop me a message if interested.
