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.
There are many different types online. Here are some:
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?
I am looking for unpainted resin Santas to buy and paint. Can someone let me know where I can buy some?

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.
