Do you love Halloween as much as I do? It is certainly one of my favorite holidays. What I love more than the candy and trick-or-treating is the decorating! I love to turn my home into a spooky and somewhat sinister place during the weeks before Halloween. Last year I created a few different resin Halloween projects and this was one of them. Here is how I created this fun DIY “Framed” Skeleton Halloween Decor:

DIY “Framed” Skeleton
- Skeleton silicone mold (the exact one I used is no longer available, unfortunately.)
- Mold Release and Conditioning Spray
- FastCast Urethane Casting Resin
- Mixing cups
- Wooden Stir Stick
- Old frame
- Two sided tape or adhesive
First, you need to spray your mold with the Mold Release and Conditioner Spray so your casting won’t get stuck in the mold after it cures. I recommend applying two coats of mold release and letting it dry completely. This takes a little extra time, but is a step that will make your life easier in the end.
After the mold release spray dries, get your FastCast Resin bottles out. There are two parts that you will mix together; Part A and Part B. The biggest factor to be aware of with FastCast is that you have a very short working time with this product once it is mixed.
Combine equal amounts of Part A and B in a cup, then mix them quickly but thoroughly, for 30-45 seconds and quickly pour them into your mold. If you feel the cup getting warm when you are mixing then that is a sign you need to pour it immediately.
After just a few minutes the resin will begin to cure, which you can watch as it will start to turn white. After 10 minutes it will be completely white and cured. This is a quick process!
Remove your skeletal castings from the mold and check out how awesome they are!
Arrange all of the pieces within your painted frame and secure them with double-sided mounting tape. And voila, a “Framed” Skeleton!
