For the wooden block mold – I mixed up some Amazing Clear Cast Resin and poured a thin layer. The block mold is about 3/4" deep so I poured a layer that's about 1/8" thick and let it set. I went back to pull off the now solid white Amazing Casting Resin and saw that my experiment worked. The glitter that had been left behind was now removed from my mold and it was ready to use.
The next day I poured the final layer in the mold. My last layer would be Amazing Casting Resin My thinking was that this solid white layer will be the background of the piece and it will show the shapes and colors nicely. I won't know if this actually works until the piece is finished. I'll just have to wait for the last layer to dry.
This created a really interesting florentine swirl pattern that kept changing slightly as the resin dried. I'm absolutely in love with this piece. It was very exciting for me to create this piece because I was never really sure how it would look when it was done. It almost created itself because of the way the resin settles so this time around it was pure creative adventure for me.
