Ever had an awesome idea of something to make...or see if you could make? Then you have one obstacle after another, but you are bound and determined to see it through? Well, that is this project.
I wanted to make some resin pecans, that part was pretty easy. Then I wanted to make a praline.
In the South you see several types of pralines; creamy, chocolate, even bacon! I wanted to make what is called "original" pralines. They are more shiny and translucent than the creamy pralines. It probably would have been easier to make creamy pralines, but I already had started on this journey.
And yes, At one point I did give totally up and mold a whole, already made, praline... The cast looked like moose poop.
After I pop out the pieces, I then used a sponge to coat some watered down black acrylic paint into the crevices. I then wiped it off the top. This gave the resin pecans life! I then added some cream paint to the broken edges.
Can you tell which are real and which are resin?
Pretty close! The resin pecans are on the left.
Now that my pecans are done I just need to put them in a resin praline.
... easy right?
Sigh.... not really. I ruined about half dozen batches of my pretty pecans.
