#Cre8time Garden Play... Teeny Tiny Fairy Doors by Maria Soto


Hi there! I want to share a cute little project I made... it reminded me how much I love getting my hands dirty as I create fun crafty items.

I joined a swap group a few years ago, we always do jewelry, but this time I was asked if I wanted to take part of the fairy garden swap and I accepted the invitation. CLICK HERE to jump over to see my owl charms, and HERE for the Star Wars themed charms I made for previous swaps.


We had to make tiny doors and a window. I decided to make the door with a window, just didn't know how. After a lot of thinking and a few craft fails, I went to the craft store and I found a section of tiny miniatures for fairy gardens. I had no idea they had these available, so I purchased a door. I decided to use Creative Paperclay® to make an impression of the door only – and then I added the remaining details by hand.

The door I purchased had a tiny butterfly on it, it was cute but I decided to add a window in it's place. Once the doors were done with their new windows it was time to let the clay dry over night. Next I hand painted each with acrylic paints. To finish them up, I added some sparkle and a bit of flowers to decorate each tiny door.

I also had to make these safe for outdoor use, so I used Amazing Clear Cast Resin to seal the paper clay... and at the same time used it as glue to add all the glitter, beads and tiny plants/flowers. Just a little bit of resin was enough to finish up these tiny houses – I love how glossy they look thanks to the resin.


Here you can see one of the tiny doors all painted,
ready for the final embellishments.

 

I applied the resin all over the piece and then added beads
to serve as tiny rocks around the plant and flowers.


Here are the finished doors, all ready to go to their new homes.
It's great when you have a product that you can use in so many different ways.


I really like these tiny little doors – adding the trim on the doors, and the tiny windows to make each door different and unique. I loved how the Amazing Clear Cast Resin not only allowed me to make these outdoor safe, but I think the glossy finish makes the texture, the color, and the little details really POP.

What would you create for your fairy garden?

I hope I have inspired you to find new ways to use this amazing resin, the more I play with it the more creative fun I have. These little doors are ready to welcome some fun fairies. Share your ideas with us, we'd love to see how creative you are with Amazing Casting Products.

#Cre8time Happy Accidents... DIY Butterfly Hairclip by Brenda Burfeind

Good day! Brenda here from Creativity is a State of Mind with a tutorial how to use your resin paper to create a butterfly hairclip. The paper I am going to use today was created by accident, literally!

My box of resin paper.

So what happened... I was going to pour a mold using Amazing Casting Resin and the Violet Alumilite Dye that I had mixed up. While picking up my measuring cup, I knocked it over instead and my resin spilled everywhere. Thank goodness I keep paper towels within arms reach when pouring molds. 

I quickly wiped it up and was about to throw the paper towel away when I realized it may come in handy. I laid it out on my teflon sheet (if you don't have one you can also use a white plastic garbage bag) as flat as possible and within 10 minutes it had set up nicely. I tried to make sure that there weren't too many thick areas so that it would still be somewhat pliable and easy to cut.


Then I wondered if my new Stampin' Up butterfly die would work on it?

  

I located an area of the paper towel with most of the purple, cut around the butterfly and ran it through the Cuttlebug! Perfection!!!


Now the paper towel is pliable and the die cut it out AMAZINGLY! Do you see the awesome texture the paper towel gave the butterfly?


I had just enough of the purple resin area
so that I was able to cut the butterfly twice!


I glued the edges and pinched it together to create a 3D effect. 
Kind of like a cage.


I also used a Sharpie to draw in the butterfly body and my E6000® 
was the perfect way to attach the butterfly to the hair clip.

I love happy crafty accidents! 

:)



My granddaughter has the perfect hair for this awesome butterfly clip.

What would you create
with resin paper?

Thank you for stopping by today and I would love to hear from you. Leave me a comment and tell me what you would create using your Amazing Resin paper!

Until next time, ~ Brenda

Purple Resin Rain, Purple Resin Rain-ay-ainnnn... by Tanya Ruffin

Purple Rain Resin Candle- Tanya Ruffin for Amazing Mold Putty

and Violet Dye I made a tribute to the late great Prince.

Super easy, scoop up some resin on the craft stick
and drip down the side of the candle.

You can leave it pooled around the bottom or trim with scissors.

After looking at it I decided it needed a little something extra,
so I pulled out some polymer clay and came up with this...

It was a tad plain so I pressed a Sizzix embossing folder into the clay design. 

I used the clock design. Clock, Time, Morris Day and the Time... get it? Anyway...

After baking clay the next step – make a mold of the Prince Love symbol...


It's quick and easy with Amazing Mold Putty!


Mix Violet Dye with Amazing Casting Resin. Pour into mold and wait about 10 minutes to cure. Rub some Gold Rub 'n Buff® to highlight the design. I ended up casting a pink version that I used to finish my candle. I am also going to make some necklaces with my Amazing Prince Love symbol!


Go Craft Your Own Way!
