I don't really know a thing about resin, but for flecks of light, could you use some plain/white glitter? And as for a LED light, what about leaving a space for the light to be inserted after the resin cures, and that way when the light goes out you can just insert a new one?

Love the materia idea~

Oh, that could work too, like those glass sculptures that you set on a lighted pedestal that changes color? Maybe something like that, if the materia is made out of resin light should come through it easy.

Well, I guess start off with just the orbs. And if they sell, look into light up ones.

The white materia it a bit smaller(less resin), so you could start with that. It would probably be the biggest seller. Get the look of that right, and you're on to a winner.

I already found a spherical ice mold that I think will work perfectly:



I'm on it. :monster:


EDIT: Flare, I could also get a LED light that changes from red/green/purple, etc to turn it into the different sorts of materia...in that case I'd only have to make a clear/white orb.

I would buy the crystal if it came with a stand or soemthing, with the led shining from below? I'd get blue green yellow red and purple led lights too! Take my money!!!

... What's the diameter of those ice molds? I assume somewhere between child's marble and fist?

They're 1.7 inches in diameter...I'm looking for something slightly larger though. XD

EDIT: It seems like materia is a lot more popular than keychains. XD

It reminds me of my big, ocean blue marbles. I don't think they really make a lot of marbles that size in the right colors and even if they did, I wouldn't expect them to be that easy to find.

Well then that's easier because the 1.7" ones are more affordable. :lol:

I'll order the molds today when I get home. Hopefully I'll get them by the weekend.

I have lots of paint already. Some of them are special effects paints. I also have liquid fabric dye I could try. I think I'll need to experiment. :wacky: I also have some mica paste.

For the beads I made last night, I used blue acrylic and it worked great.

Found this on Google:

What about those pebeo paints you mentioned to me before? Do you think those would work?
Here's some white materia:
ACC materia:
Huge materia:
Also, these were on Etsy, apparently:

I'm really excited about this. :awesome: I can't wait to see what you make, Howl! Also, different sizes for different products; you could use the medium sized ones for display, small ball molds for, perhaps, keychain materia? The big molds mentioned before could always be used for Christmas ornaments.... if you could make them lightweight, of course. Have no idea, but just some thoughts if this takes off.

This thread should be renamed 'Howl's adventure with resin'. XD

Are there any other pics for reference of materia? From Last Order, ACC, Crisis Core, etc.?

What about the Huge Materia?














Whenever I see this image, I can't help but wonder how the hell Cloud's hand passes through the crystal Sephiroth is in.

What you could probably do is take solid coloured marbles, bake them, put them in an ice bath to make them crack, giving them a shattering/shimmering effect.
