I have found through the past while of molding things that I keep going back to my vintage button molds. I can't get over the fact that I get to use my favorite bits over and over, even though they're vintage and almost one of a kind! You can find a post I did from a previous term on molding some buttons here, but today I want to share with you a different way to color them!
Here is a quick snip from the tutorial previously. The buttons have been molded with Amazing Mold Putty and colored with alcohol inks.
But sometimes I want something a little more... a VINTAGE feeling! They are vintage buttons after all. That's when I crack out Alumilite Dyes. I mix in a super light amount of brown or black to give the Amazing Casting Resin a bit of an offwhite base. And then I douse the cured piece in Glimmer Glaze! It gives the cast button a sort of shimmery old metal feel.
Other supplies: Viva Las VegaStamps! Daisy stamp, UmWowStudio Make Note polaroid, Pink Paislee Hope Chest collection, Ranger archival ink, Distress stain, Distress ink, May Arts ribbons.
I'd love to hear about other things that work really well with the resin but might produce a different outcome! Thanks for stopping by today! ~ DeeDee
