I hope you are having a wonderful Holiday with friends and family! If you still have the energy in you to create a extra ornament or two, you might like to try this Vintage inspired Santa Claus ornament!
To get started, you will a need a old Christmas candy mold, I found this one at a antique flea market.
Clean the top of the mold with a damp cloth to remove any dirt and grime.
Amazing Mold Putty until you have a uniform color of yellow.
While waiting for your mold to set, gather 1 1/2" pieces of floral wire and wrap them as shown around the handle of a paint brush. Twist the wire and slip off.
Amazing Casting Resin.
I measured using the cups provided and mixed in a dixie cup.
I preheated my mold with the heat gun before pouring in the resin. I waited until the resin began to half way set, (see the white?), before placing the wire loop at the top.
You can add a touch of color to the cheeks with a alcohol pen.
To add the glitter detail, add some clear glue to parts of Santa's costume. Then sprinkle with fine glitter and set to dry. Remove any extra glitter with a dry paint brush.
