I’ve been working on my Gourd Art a lot lately. I’ve been to shows and have several shows coming up. I just started to work on a new gourd that I planned on putting a butterfly on the side of. I wanted a unique topper so I pulled out a couple of drawer pulls that I had in my stash box.
As you can see one of the drawer pulls was a butterfly! So I got out my Mold Putty and mixed up equal parts of A and B.
And then molded the putty around my drawer pulls. Once the Mold Putty had set up I took the drawer pulls out and dusted the butterfly pull mold with Alumilite powder in Gold. Kind of hard to see the Gold inside the putty. Once that was done I mixed up equal parts of the Casting Resin and poured that inside the mold. When I took the resin out of the mold when it had set, it was covered with the Gold color and I placed it on top of my gourd to see how it was going to look. It’s kind of hard to see the butterfly but it’s going to work perfect for this butterfly gourd.
