I was reading through some of the articles on this website and thought it would be fun to make some of my own puzzles. Only one problem, I don't know where to get the materials! Can anyone tell me where to get polyurethan resin, silicone rubber, etc.? Can I get this stuff at a craft store like Michael's or AC-More? Or do I need to go to a more specialized hobby store?

you would have to find a specialty store. it has taken me 10 months to find a store around me. i found them yesterday and got resign and mold making materials. i spent about $30 and can make a ton of stuff. look through your phone book for plastic supplies.

Unlikely to find this sort of chemical in a local store. You'll most likely need to do a bit of driving or order from a company.

I recommend Cytex / Conap's Conathane (UC30) as the best and you can find distributors closest to you here:
