Xencast Resin Casting Starter Kit

This fantastic starter kit contains everything you need to make resin copies of just about any original shape, component or figure. The item you're copying could be an existing part or your own design made from just about any material!

Includes 1kg of easy-to-use two-part silicone rubber to make your moulds, 2kg of fast-curing Xencast P2 polyurethane casting resin to make the resin castings and all necessary ancillaries.

Whether you have past experience of silicone moulds and polyurethane casting resin or are a complete newcomer to these exciting materials, the Xencast® Resin Casting Starter Kit is a brilliant way to get everything you need in one great value package.

Using this silicone mould making and resin casting kit you can take just about any original part or pattern including RPG figures, sculptures, figurines, scenario models or product prototypes and then perfectly duplicate them by first creating a flexible silicone mould and then casting durable and perfectly detailed resin copies.

The resin included in the kit is our easy-to-use Xencast® P2 'fast-cast' polyurethane resin which will flow easily into the fine surface details of the silicone mould and then cure quickly (within 30 mins) to a strong white plastic copy of the original part.

The number of uses for the Resin Casting Starter Kit are almost limitless. Some of our customers use the kit to make a whole army of modified RPG characters whilst others use the process to reproduce replacements for plastic parts that are no longer available. Designers can use the process as part of their rapid prototyping work whilst artists can easily make copies of their original work as samples or demonstration pieces. The kit is absolutely perfect for quickly creating tough, durable and inexpensive copies of 3D printed parts.

  • Copy your original figure designs or characters
  • Quickly make tough, inexpensive copies of 3D prints
  • Reproduce discontinued or unavailable parts
  • Produce product prototypes or even small production runs

Comprehensive Instructions

We have full, detailed instructions available to download and read even before you purchase an Xencast Resin Casting Starter Kit. To understand the processes involved in detail before purchasing or if you have already purchased a kit and are about to start your mould making and resin casting project, click the image to download the full instructions in printable PDF format.

Xencast Starter Kit Instruction Manual(1.4Mb)

Basic Instructions:

Included in the resin casting kit is everything necessary to first create a silicone mould and then make plastic (polyurethane resin) castings of the original parts. No additional equipment or supplies are required.

Full details are included with the PDF guide but for simple mouldings the process can be summarised as follows (more complex shapes will require slightly different techniques):

1. Make a box around your original (master)

Use the fluted signboard (included in the kit) to build a simple box that snugly contains your original part.

2. Mix and pour the silicone rubber

Mix a quantity of silicone rubber to fill the cavity around the original part. You can estimate how much you'll need using dry rice.

Pour the liquid rubber over the original part. Silicone won't stick to the original part so you don't need any release agent.

3. Allow the silicone to cure

The CS25 condensation cure RTV silicone included in the kit will take about 12hrs to cure at room temperature and average humidity.

4. Remove the original part from the silicone mould

Once the silicone has fully cured the resulting flexible rubber block (containing the original part) can now be removed from the set-up box.

Depending on the shape and complexity of the part it may be possible to simply stretch the mould slightly and pull the original part from the mould. Other shapes will require that the mould is gently cut open to remove the part.

5. Mix and pour the casting resin

Mix enough Xencast® P2 fast cast polyurethane casting resin to fill the new mould - if necessary you can estimate this by measuring dry rice into the mould first. The Xencast® P2 silicone mould resin included in the kit uses a convenient 1 to 1 mix ratio.

Carefully pour the mixed resin into the lowest part of the silicone mould. Continue pouring into the same place and allow the resin to fill up the mould.

6. Allow to cure and then de-mould

The Xencast® P2 resin will cure and be ready to de-mould within around 30 mins. Once the resin feels fully hardened the new casting can be removed from the mould (separating two halves of the mould if necessary).

The mould can now be used to create many castings in a single day!

Colour Pigments and Metallic Effect Cold Castings

Use our Tinting Pigments to colour the casting resin any of 10 different pastel shades or for a more vibrant colours use our range of polyurethane solid colour pigments.

Realistic metallic castings can be created using a combination of different metal powders and pigments.

The P2 Fast-Cast resin included in this starter kit is an opaque off-white colour. For a waterclear casting resin for thicker sections, we would recommend our Water Clear Polyurethane Casting Resin.

The volume of silicone is approximately 1 Litre. The actual size of the mould produced and the volume of the cast such a mould can produce depends on shape of the mould, thickness of the mould walls, amount of recessed detail and other variables.



The volume of resin produced from the kit is approximately 2 litres.

Yes this kit would be ideal for a project like that. You could make a few different moulds for shape and size of pebbles then cast the various pebbles using the Xencast P2 Fast-Cast.

In most cases, cast PU and other similar resin parts will only need a sandpaper key and a thorough clean prior to painting. Most modern paints work well on plastic surfaces. However in some rare cases or with some specialist paints, you may well need to use a plastics primer to ensure good adhesion. We would recommend reading your paint suppliers technical documentation or if unsure doing a small test before the main painting process.
