Tired of the same four resin molds available at your local craft store? Great news: there are plenty of small shops on Etsy creating fun and exciting molds and inclusions to breathe new life into your resin craft hobby or business. Here are a few of the shops that I go to when looking for inspiring supplies.
- Narwhal Star Studio: I love Donna and Brandon’s mold designs that run the range from cute to quirky to provocative. There’s something for everyone here. I love that their molds come in fun colors, too! I have a crystal tray mold from here that I found to be high quality. Be sure to check out their dice box molds.
- The Mouldy Tombstone: This shop’s the place to go for molds that are gothic, witchy, spooky, or alternative. I love their small-sized molds that come in pairs for easy earring-making but can be used for charms, keychains, pop-sockets, and more.
- Galaxy Doe Designs: Casey’s cute art becomes amazing molds that feature all sorts of creatures from our world, the world of the past, or the worlds of myth and legend. The molds are best for making keychains, ornaments, and other decor. Personally, I love the dinosaur designs!
- Defiant Art Co: Another great resource for earring molds, this shop lives up to its name with alternative and feminist designs. My favorites are the raptor skull and the 3D gecko!
- Sparkly Treasures Shop: A massive shop featuring molds as well as glitter and other inclusions. There are a ton of shaker molds to be found here, alongside molds for appropriate “bits”! There are even molds that have a holographic effect on resin, how cool is that?
That should be plenty of molds to browse! But what about inclusions? I’ve got some suggestions there, too!
Teresa’s Plants: Amazing resource for dried flowers, moss, and other natural inclusions. I have used Teresa’s flowers in my resin art, and I’ve also used her moss and spider gum claw pods for home decor. Beautiful stuff, including dried flowers in every possible color!
Llama Dog Mini Studio: Do you need a really tiny animal or character for use in resin jewelry or dice? I mean really teeny tiny? Look no further. These artists make the tiniest micro miniatures you can find anywhere, and they’re all hand-painted. I used one of their foxes for my The Green Knight-inspired dice set!
Etsy is a great place to shop for handmade and unique gifts, but I really love it for finding amazing art and craft supplies, too. Do you have any favorite resin crafting shops on Etsy that you frequent? Let me know!
