Dress up your #Cre8time... Bejeweled Hair Clip by Aimée Wheaton


Hi all! Aimée here today to share this little sweet piece created from broken costume jewelry. I thought I'd mold it to see how the Amazing Mold Putty would do and it didn't fail!! Check out the details below!


I was bummed when this broke, but I kept it to use for molds. I'm sure I'll use the pieces for other projects.

  

I mixed two equal parts of Amazing Mold Putty and formed it around the gem {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. The photo on right shows the awesome detail it picked up. I love how it caught all the facets of the gems.


Next, I took some cotton swabs and colored in each individual gem with some Alumidust. I chose copper, bright blue and deep purple.


Detail of all the different shades.


I mixed equal parts of the quick curing Amazing Casting Resin {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. It cures in no time!! I demolded and below is what you see :)

Add some hot glue and add it to an alligator clip and it's done! 


This would be great for customizing outfits with matching accessories!


I also wanted to share this amazing casting of pony beads on a piece of yarn. I love how amazing the Amazing Mold Putty is!!!

Let's see what you can create
with your broken treasures,
Amazing Mold Putty
and Amazing Casting Resin!

Putting on the #Cre8time Glitz! Fabulous FAUX Druzy by Brenda Burfeind


Good day fellow crafters! Brenda here from Creativity is a State of Mind and I'm so glad to be back showing you my newest fun addiction. I've taken a bit of a break from blogging but not crafting – so I will have lots to show you in the upcoming weeks. I hope you will jump over to my blog soon as check out all the fun things I've done. But while you are here, let's see what I have in store for you today. I've been thinking Valentine's Day projects and the red just fit my mood.

For this little number... I started out with Amazing Clear Cast Resin and the Alumilite Red Dye and an empty bezel.


I added about 2 tiny drops of the Alumilite Red Dye to the Amazing Clear Cast Resin after it was all mixed up (you can view mixing techniques HERE), and it gives it a beautiful rich red color. I then slowly poured that into my bezel and let this cure overnight. The clear cast resin does need to cure for a good 24 hours depending on how thick it is.


Meanwhile, I took one of these glass globs and let my frustration out on it. Seriously put your glob in a baggie and after a couple good whacks with a hammer... it's broken up nicely. Please don't forget your eye protection!

  

Next I took my silver alcohol ink and added a few drops into an empty pill container and added a few glass chunks. I also did the same with the cranberry alcohol inks and more glass pieces.

  

Swish your pill bottle around and pour your alcohol out (I actually pour it into another bottle and use it for my next project), and then pour your glass shards onto a paper plate and let dry. Since my resin has to cure overnight, I just left my glass chunks to dry the same time.


Once the resin has cured I mix up a tiny batch of more Amazing Clear Cast Resin and paint a layer over the cured resin... then the magic starts! I carefully place the glass pieces into the resin. Building up in the middle and then layering around to fill the entire bezel. I used mainly the red chunks and added a few silver chunks here and there. Then I let this cure again for another 24 hours.


I added a vintage chain that I got at an auction of some broken jewelry.

Isn't this gorgeous?


I absolutely love this bracelet!!
Honestly these pictures do it no justice at all. 


How do you customize your jewelry?

So I hope you've enjoyed my project for today! I invite you to stop over to my blog, Creativity is a State of Mind to see all that I've been making. Thanks for joining me today and I would love to hear your feedback on today's bracelet. What color faux druzy would you make?

Until next time... ~ Brenda

A Nightmare AFTER Christmas... AMAZING Inspiration from Lara Hjorthoy


Hi Friends! It's Lara here to share some inspiration with you... how about a Nightmare Before (or is it, after?) Christmas themed art?!!!

I am super excited to share this with you! I have a show coming up in a Gallery in Portugal, called Penumbra Gallery. And being such a fan of Nightmare, as I know all the Amazing Ladies of Amazing Casting Products Team are, I was thrilled to be accepted into the "A Night at the Movies" show! 

I sculpted my version of Zero in Sculpey {polymer clay} and then cast a mold of him in Amazing Mold Rubber, then used Amazing Clear Cast Resin to cast up my sculpture of Zero, wth a bit of PearlEx Iridescent Blue Powder added into the mix. I painted him up using oil paint, and of course added a glow-in-the-dark Sculpey nose! Presto! A glittery, translucent, ghostly Zero, heading out on a long journey to Portugal! Have a safe trip Zero! 

Have you made any fan art using Resin?

Be Safe out there this winter and
Stay Inspired Friends! ~ Lara
