A Pendant for your Thoughts... AMAZING #Jewelry Inspiration by Tracy Alden


Hello! Tracy here with another Amazing Casting Products inspiration post! Whenever I craft I try my best to not waste many of my supplies, and save as much as possible for future projects. This is no different for the many molds I create using these amazing products! I might cut up some molds for filler for future molding projects but most of my molds I seal in freezer bags and label them for more casting projects. 

I have a wonderful collection of beads, chains and findings from Linpeng International Inc./Fiona Accessories but I wasn't sure what to put with them. Then I remembered I had some great Organic Shapes molded with Amazing Mold Rubber that a created awhile back. 


I found the large tear drop focal pendant mold was the perfect size for a deceased Garden Spider that was found. I tinted it with Alumilite Dyes and used some mica flakes to add visual interest. Delicate gold tone chain from Fiona Accessories worked wonderful with the warm amber tinted tone of the Amazing Clear Cast Resin.


Using both Alumilite Dyes and Alumidust I created this layered metallic flame piece. I finished off the dramtic look with a vintage frame and satin cording. 


I had quite a few people request I do more of the Cosmic Cabochons, such as the ones I made for the Amazing Casting Products CHA display, but this time instead of being attached to a dress, it was a necklace focal. With glitter, Alumilite Dyes and Alumidust, I created a multi-layer miniture universe cabochon. Once again I used a vintage frame, chain and crystals from Fiona Accessories to finish this flashy piece.



With many varieties of craft supplies and Amazing Casting Products at my finger tips, I can revisit and remake more pieces to enjoy.


What AMAZING arts and crafts can you create?

Until next time, safe travels! ~ Tracy

I wanted to share this little goodie I made my boy's track teams this year! I used a smooth poker chip, and layered the letter stickers D and C onto that, then made molds. Then I poured Amazing Casting Resin, and set two tacks into the back with their pins sticking out. Now, instead of the kid's step marking tape lifting off of the wet turf in the Oregon rain, the kids can count their steps, and leave their marker without it moving from it's spot!! DC stands for the school name, and each kid got their own marker, and could write their names on them. The dots on the white are from my son pushing his market into the ground with his spikes on. 


Have any Throwback Thursday

#Altered Outlet Covers??! AMAZING Inspiration by Brenda Burfeind


Hello and welcome to another Inspiration post by me, Brenda, from Creativity is a State of Mind. I love my blog name, because everyone perceives creativity differently. I know I make some things and people just shake their head, but others love it. I'm here to show you how to dress up your outlet covers for every room in the house...

Since my 3 grandchildren came back to live with me I've had to child proof my house again. They range in ages from 1 to 5 and they are the love of my life but they mange to get into a bunch of mischief. They definitely keep me on my toes. The other day I caught the 1 year old playing by my outlets and was a bit concerned so I decided to make my outlets look pretty!


I purchased some of these outlet plugs, but they are so boring and I thought I could probably dress them up a bit so let's get started.

Boring RIGHT? So while rummaging through my big box of "Not Yet Finished" resin pieces I found a couple I could dress these plugs up with. Whenever I create resin pieces I manage to over create! I absolutely love using Amazing Casting Products – but I've managed to create a bunch of extra pieces that can be used for future projects, just like this one!

Everything shown below was created with all the Amazing Casting Products from the Amazing Mold Putty to create the mold. The Amazing Casting Resin to create the piece and the Alumilite Dyes, Alumidust or the Alumilite Metallic Powders to color the pieces!


Using my E6000® glue I added this elephant to a plug.


Again using E6000® I glued an altered domino resin piece to the plug after painting the plug black. This would go nicely in your game room!


Yet again, using the E6000® glue I glued this vine piece to a plug after painting it with a green to match! How about adding this to your sunroom?

I hope I've inspired you to create some plug covers for your house. 

Please leave me a comment and tell me what you'd create and for which room!

Until next time, Brenda unplugging!
