#Cre8time Play can be Sticky and Sweet... AMAZING Inspiration from Aimée Wheaton


Hi guys, Aimée here with a simple little project anyone can do. :) So my mission that I chose to accept was to play with the new Amazing Remelt, I have to admit I was a bit intimidated at first but soon discovered it was easy peasy! This product is great if you love to work with small items with resin or if you like to be creative in the kitchen because it is food safe and non toxic. It melts right in your microwave and pours really easy when melted into your molds.

My idea was completely different than what is in the photograph above, it always happens that way right? Originally I thought it would be awesome to mold candy canes and then use melted chocolate in the molds, um no. Don't try that because they broke into a gazillion pieces and I had to figure out something different to create.


I thought it was a good idea and gave it a try, live and learn right? I hot glued them down to my tupperware container so they wouldn't start swimming in the Amazing Remelt. Please CLICK HERE to view how this fun molding product works.


Remember the other letters I made from the Sculpey clay last project? Molded them! They turned out to be my focus for this one. These were also hot glued down to prevent swimming.

  

They made such a clean mold, but the candy canes didn't and I found that they were disintegrating in the warm Amazing Remelt and made very choppy spaces in the mold. The good thing is I can remelt it and reuse it. :) I bet if you're the Betty Crocker/Martha Stewart type you could do wonders in the kitchen with this amazing product! I on the other hand am not like either of those women! LOL!

The Love letters were super good to me and I followed through with the melted chocolate idea.

Here is what I used:


Not the prettiest in the mold.


Glitter makes everything better! 

You have to work fast because they were melting in my hands!


Bring on the white Oreos and add more glitter! Ever notice how pretty the relief designs are on them?Add the chocolate on top and they make for a pretty dessert for a holiday party.

How is that for easy? Best part? You get to lick your fingers afterwards!

NOM NOM!!

Let's see what you can create
with your variety of items,
and CHOCOLATE!!

At my son's elementary school, there is an annual event called Art Town. It is a day full of creative and performance art activities... just like a "field day" but for ART! I volunteered to host one of the activities for some of the 4th and 5th grade groups creating Resin Covered Domino Pendants.

 
   

We used dominos as the base of a necklace, and collaged images out of magazines to go on the front using packing tape. What makes these necklaces really special was adding coating of resin, which I do after the event. 

 

I use Amazing Clear Cast Resin to seal their creations
and the decorated objects become durable jewelry. 

 
 

Both the boys and the girls really love their necklaces!


  
  


  


  


The students and teachers were crazy about them!

Heather Kindt... an AMAZING Featured Artist Spotlight



Greetings AMAZING Crafters! Today we have a fun questionnaire that we posed to our Featured Artist Heather Kindt! Have fun getting to know her a little better! For more information about Heather's project above... please CLICK HERE. :) Sb

A little bit about Heather...


I currently live in West Des Moines, Iowa, but I mostly grew up in Denver, Colorado. Growing up I was not artistic or creative, but I have always been a fan of Impressionistic art and bold colors. It wasn't until my son was born that I started creating with paper. Five years ago I discovered art journaling.

The more I experimented with my art, the more media I got hooked on. From journal pages, I went to canvases and started including dimentional objects. Sometimes called "Assemblage" which led to making artsy jewelry. From paint, ink, watercolor, stamping, paper, tape, found objects, fabric, encaustics, beads, crystals, and resin to drawing pencils, there are almost no media that I don't like!

Online I share art adventures on my Facebook page, Heather Marie Kindt.

Some fun questions for the inquiring minds...


What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be my mom who is a mom.

Coke or Pepsi???

Diet Coke and caffeine free at night.


What inspires you?
Impressionism, especially with bright colors.

What is the TOP thing to do on your "Bucket LIST"?

I've been pretty lucky to have done many things on my bucket list, but I have an art bucket list! I'd like to sell prints of some of the artwork I create in my journals.

If you could print any phrase
on a T-shirt, what would it say?

My motto and favorite quote:
"I am not afraid, I was born to do this." ~ Joan of Arc


If you could mold ANYTHING with
Amazing Mold Putty, what would it be?

The Eiffel Tower

What style of music gets your creative juices going?

I like audio books because it keeps my mind occupied so I can make art
without second guessing myself as much. It's really relaxing!
