Resin Guide and Instructions

Working with Resin

Polyurethane resin is a hard, durable plastic that captures outstanding detail. It's used in a variety of modelling products including movie props, high-end garage kits and by companies such as Forge World.

While an excellent material for miniatures, there are a few things to keep in mind when working with resin:

Resin dust can be harmful! Wear a dust mask when sanding or filing resin parts.

Like all model kits, some preparation and cleanup will be needed during assembly. Minor flash or mold lines may need to be removed. A few of our pieces also have pour gates or other pieces of excess resin that should be removed first.

It's possible that conditions during shipping may cause flat parts to warp slightly - this can usually be corrected by gently bending pieces back into shape, or briefly immersing the part in warm water to soften it slightly before reshaping it.

Before painting, it is important to wash all resin parts with a liquid soap and water. The parts may have traces of mold-release agent from the casting process that could interfere with paint adhesion if not cleaned off.

Most plastic cements are not formulated to work with polyurethane - we recommend using Cyanoacrylate (CA) Super Glue for assembly.
