    Ok going to start my casting journey using polyester casting resin the slow setting type and see how i get on, looking through the posts on this subject, there is a lot of "disinformation" and some smoke and mirrors about the black art of casting, must admit I dont blame the people who have invested time and money getting things " just right" not wanting to give information away, but if you look carefully the information is there, but you still need to work out the exact process, but hey ho you need some effort, i did say to someone on here it was impossible to put genuine watch parts in a sierra blank, I now know its physically possible,,, but that doesnt mean I can do it',,,,,, forst time,,,, but I will figure it out
    Cheers

    Thanks for your advice,I have tried 1 and 2% but I think next time I will try less and see how it goes,I think you are right it does feel like it's brittle
