You Can Never Have Too Many Shoes!
Hello crafters - Carole here today sharing one of my favorite shoes. This original hollow brass shoe was one of the first things I molded when I joined the Amazing Mold Putty design team. A friend of mine found it during one of his flea market excursions. I remember thinking that all the details was probably going to be too much for the putty to capture. But, I was so wrong. This putty picks up the tiniest details.
I’ve cast this shoe several different ways using the same mold. On this version I use Amazing Casting Resin, which is an opaque white when it is fully cured. Next, I painted the entire surface with USArtQuest’s Duo Embellishing Adhesive. This liquid adhesive goes on white, and dries clear and tacky. Perfect for adhering the Gilding Bitz, also from USArtQuest. I used a small, dry brush to manipulate the gilding leaf, and gentle brushed and tamped it into every curve and flourish. I added a pin back and now have a OOAK (one-of-a-kind) brooch.
These shoes I cast using Amazing Casting Resin and Amazing Clear Cast Resin. Before pouring the Amazing Casting Resin (white), I dusted the mold with Alumilite Metallic Pearlescent Powder. This, too, was finished with a pin back. The clear casted piece I intend to use as an embellishment for a card or journal.
This darling pink shoe was cast using fondant.
Yes, candy!! Lots of fun to served as an after dinner mint.
And for the same party I did shoe butter molds!!
Molds made with Amazing Mold Putty are 100% silicone and food-safe. I thoroughly washed and dried this mold before using with food. You could also dedicate certain molds for use only with food.
