Once again, my collections are inspiration to use my Amazing Mold Putty!! I have such a habit of buying things to use in my artwork, and then NOT using them because they are one of a kind... or they are so pretty I can't bring myself to use them... you get the idea. I don't use them. It's one of the things that makes Amazing Mold Putty one of my favorite new art tools.
For example: I have a collection of Vintage Doorplates... and I never use them for anything, because they are each unique. This one in particular is one of my favorites. I would love to use it in a piece of art work, but I can't get another one just like it...
Now that I have Amazing Mold Putty, I can MAKE one!!
What you need:
Amazing Mold Putty
*OPTIONAL Brown Alumilite Dye
First, I used two equal parts Amazing Mold Putty and
mixed them together until they were uniform in color.Then I molded it around the door plate by pressing the plate deep into the putty. I made sure that where there were holes, the putty came through, and then formed it into a point, so that the mold would pull free of the plate easily once it was set.
Once the mold was as clean and dry as I could get it I used equal parts clear cast A and B. Then I poured Amazing Casting Resin into the mold. I also added a drop of Brown Alumilite Dye, but it didn't really make the resin as dark as I wanted, so that's a moot point. Next time, I will add more dye, and not have to spray paint the piece! When you mix your dye into the resin, add the dye to PART A of your A/B mix before you combine the two. If you don't HAVE dye, you don't have to have it to make this.
As the resin Cures, it starts to turn opaque... it's a cool thing to watch!! These two photos were taken in less than 2 min of each other.
Next, I used Robin Metallics Rub Ons to add metallic tones. My sets were part of my grandma's paints, so I don't know where she got them. I think they can be found in most craft stores now.
