#Resin Rocks! AMAZING #DIY Jewelry by Featured Artist Katie Smith


I'm the Indie Crafts editor over at CraftGossip which means I'm always looking at new stylish tutorials to feature and keeping up with the trends. One of the trends that is pretty popular right now is tribal themed items. I decided to make a necklace inspired by that trend.

While I was up in Oklahoma earlier this month, we stopped at a tiny rock shop and I picked up a few of these 50 cent arrowheads. I decided to try making a mold using them, so that I could make some resin arrowheads!


I started by mixing up a bit of Amazing Mold Putty and mashing my real arrowheads down into it. I let it cure for 20ish minutes before pulling them out {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}.


I love how quickly you can make molds with this stuff!


To make my resin arrowheads I first brushed a tiny bit


Then I whipped up a batch of Amazing Casting Resin and added a little bit of Alumilite Dye into it and poured it into my mold {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. 

**TIP** I always have an extra small mold on hand as well in case I have any extra resin, I'll pour it in to there.


While the resin was still liquidy, I placed some jewelry eye pins into my arrowheads so that I could use them on a necklace (without drilling holes or gluing eye pins to them).


The Amazing Casting Resin cures pretty quick, so I pulled these 3 arrowheads out and made a half a dozen more in other colors.


You can see the original arrowheads on the left, and my resin arrowheads on the right. I love that I can make them in different colors!

AMAZING Wiggly, Jiggly Creature Making...
by Lynne Suprock

Lynne Suprock here to take a little trip down memory lane for some fun and AMAZING inspiration.


One day last summer, I seriously bought a box of old Creepy Crawler metal molds! Let's just maybe call it reverting to my childhood days. I really don't know what made me do it... but I loved playing with those icky things when I was an itty-bitty girl, about a hundred years or so ago.

So fast forward to now, and a box of empty metal molds and no goop, per se. Well, while working on some of my other Amazing Casting Products projects, the light went on. The Amazing Remelt reminded me of those same wiggly, jiggly little creatures from my past. Why not see if the Amazing Remelt would work in the molds? And, the most excellent part is that no baking is necessary!

  

So, per package directions, I melted the Amazing Remelt, added some sparkle, and poured the molds... I was giggly! Here are some of my sparkly, little creatures.


What childhood memories will
you recreate with Amazing Remelt?

I would love if you would leave a comment below to let us know how this technique works for you! Please share what you make with Amazing Casting Products on our website in the User Gallery.

Please visit my blog "Simply Pretty Stuff" to see more of my creations
and to view my upcoming workshop schedule.  ~ Lynne
