Hi all! Aimée here with a new necklace design that will hopefully inspire you to jump in to working with all of the Amazing Casting Products this year! I haven't made resin jewelry in quite some time and when Susan asked me to create a piece I got excited! I've been in design/redecorate/reorganize mode lately at home and have just created a new studio space for myself so projects will be much easier for me to create. This is the first piece I created in my studio and it excites and inspires me to make a bunch more!!
I love creating with vintage photos, I collect them and use them in various projects. I just received a goodie box with a bunch of new Amazing Casting Products and I was super excited about using the colored Alumidust powders! I chose the Bright Blue one for this project, the colors are so vibrant! The bezel was given to me when I joined the team and it's by the Bottle Cap Co. I brushed the dust on the bezel for some extra zing.
Most of this piece came from a stash I have of found objects, the ideas are endless with a box of junk! this is what I came up with using various things like handmade paper from my Gelli Plate, beads, glitter and more. Not sure if this is a girl or boy LOL!
Add Amazing Clear Cast Resin and then create the necklace to accompany the pendant!
I really LOVE how the resin sharpens things up!
Wear it out and get many compliments on your "Fancy" necklace!!
Let's see what you can create
with your stash of junk box items,
Feel free to stop by my FB page to see the latest with me.

Good day friends. Brenda with Creativity is a State of Mind with a unusual Christmas Ornament. If you follow me over at my blog at all, you know I love to go junking. I recently discovered a new "junk shop" in town and couldn't wait to get over there. Let me tell you, I was in heaven! I found this gentleman on Facebook and am totally amazed in the things he does. If you are at all a junker, go check out his Facebook page here. I explained what I do to Jon, and he is willing to let me come in an make molds of unique pieces as long as I continue to support him on Facebook and on my blog. Oh yeah!!!
Anyhow, I came across a few things that I purchased and I will share these over at my blog within the next couple of weeks. Today though I am sharing this AMAZING project with you here!
This piece totally intrigued me. I'm really not quite sure what it is and why, but I had to have it. It is very heavy and therefore I knew I for sure would be making a mold of it with the Amazing Mold Putty. That's one of the great things about using the Amazing Casting Products. You can take a very heavy object and turn it into a lightweight ornament and that is exactly what I did...
I mixed up my Amazing Mold Putty – you can view mixing instructions here. Then I added some Alumilite Gun Metal Metallic Powder to my Amazing Casting Resin Part "A" and mixed thoroughly. You can view those mixing instructions here. Once that was mixed together well, I added my Part "B" and mixed again and poured into my mold. My original item is on the left of my mold, and cast resin piece on the right.
Then I gently rubbed some of the Alumilite Gold Metallic Powder over my piece.
Then added color with all the other fun Alumidusts. So many possibilities...
and now I have a new and very unique Christmas Ornament that won't weigh down my branches! Remember what I said earlier about lightweight...
Thanks for stopping by and I would love it if you told me
what unique item you would mold for a Christmas Ornament.
Until next time, happy crafting ~ Brenda

Buttons, buttons... who has the buttons??? Well Lynne here, as a member of the Amazing Casting Products Creative Team, with a few of my own, just made, buttons. Watch my tutorial below on how to make these glimmer, shimmer buttons, using the new molding product, Amazing Remelt.
This stuff feels and even smells like J-E-L-L-O.
How ironic since it is food safe and it does jiggle :-)
So let's get going and see how to melt this product and use it to mold a few favorite buttons to create a bit of the extraordinary. Enjoy!
Making Buttons with Amazing Remelt
Once you have made your beautiful buttons, you can incorporate them into any number of projects. Me.... I chose to put them into a necklace using a little felt, silicone glue, and bling.
What crafty treasures would you
