Barnes Products is your go to place for all of your moulding, casting, sculpting and finishing requirements (clays, silicones, resins, expandable foam, moulds, pigments – the full kit and caboodle). They supply stuff to the movie industry (they're products have featured in everything from Babe through to Mad Max), but are equally as happy helping out folks eager to undertake a home resin-casting project. They're also super knowledge (design grads, jewellers and sculptors).
It's also the go-to place for your silicone needs for the zombie walk.
If you're feeling a bit unsure about where to start, check out a class at Candu – Barnes Products' educational arm, which is located next door (check out our interview with Nicole Barnes, Candu's proprietor). The Candu cats run workshops that'll give you the confidence to make resin jewellery, art or homewares at home. The ste up's super convenient, because if you walk away addicted to resin casting, as we did, you can pick up all of your necessary supplies from Barnes Products to DIY at home.
