I am looking for a source to purchase resin santas that I can paint. My husband has ALS and I am his primary caregiver. I need a source of income that I can do from home. Any suggestions would be very welcome. Thanks!

eBay and Etsy have them. You can get them more cheaply at Alibaba, but the delivery time is longer.

Where/how are you contemplating selling the finished products? Are you an experienced crafter/painter/artist? Are your plans to sell from your home or craft stores? Or were you thinking about selling them on line through Amazon, eBay, Etsy, or even Craigslist?

These are very important questions as almost anything in this area (homemade ceramics) are generally very slow sellers and nice "manufactured" items are generally very cheap and usually look good. Also, these items are difficult to ship and get broken very often when shipped through any of the shipping companies. They are also heavy and shipping is expensive for the potential buyer. Selling on Craigslist may be an option as no shipping would be involved.
These are also seasonal items that may only sell during a 2 month period. Did you have other ideas instead of this? Do you sew/crochet/knit as any of these products may sell better and may also be done in your role as a caretaker.
I am just sorry to say that I believe even if you did a very good job with finishing your items there will be a very low margin of profit.

Not sure about actual resin, but you may want to consider "plastercraft". The plaster pieces are heavy and feel very similar to resin, and can have amazing detail. Supply stores are few and far between, though, so you'd probably have to order your Santas online. If you google "plastercraft supplies", you'll get plenty of sources from which to choose. I would imagine shipping would be pretty costly, though, since the pieces are so heavy.

Michaels Craft store used to have them. I haven't gone there for a while so I'm not sure about this year.
