I hope you are having a wonderful summer!
The weather has been beautiful here in Southern California. :)
Every morning, the sun pours in through one very blank and lonely window.
So I decided to make a indoor mobile!
I started with equal amounts of Amazing Mold Putty, mixing the white and yellow until one uniform color of yellow. Then, working quickly, I pressed into the putty items that already had a hole of some sort.
|Metal washers and plastic bracelets make great mobile molds!|
Amazing Clear Cast resin using the measuring cups provided. One drop is all you need of Red Alumilite Dye. Then I mixed it all in a paper Dixie cup. I use Dixie cups because they are inexpensive and by crimping the side, you have a perfect pour spout.
Using a mold this small works with this resin as you have work around time before its sets, 24-48 hours. Instead of pouring into the tiny molds and risk overfilling, I just filled them drop by drop.
Blue Alumilite Dye.
When the pieces were set but not completely hard, I popped them out of their mold and trimmed off any rough spots with sharp Teflon scissors. Teflon scissors won't gum up like regular scissors might.Then I painted the mat side of the resin pieces with clear nail polish. The mat side is the part that had been sitting in the mold to cure.
I hope you have enjoyed my creation!
