AMAZING #Cre8time ways to Transform Everyday Things... by Maria Soto
Hi there, this is Maria and today I bring you a post that shows you how easy it is to take everyday items and turn them into something totally new. I was at work one day and during my lunch break I looked around and noticed that I had some office supplies and other things around that I could use to make some fun jewelry vessels.
I had this plastic compact mirror that we got from my daughter's school when she registered. I keep make up in my office – just in case I'm in the mood to wear any (this only happens like twice a year). So I looked around and well I found a few more things to play with. I always have Amazing Mold Putty with me, in my purse and in my office – you just never know when you might find something fun and interesting that you would like to make a mold of and keep handy for a special project later on.
Amazing Mold Putty is very easy to use and also very easy to carry. You can use empty prescription bottles, plastic sandwich bags, etc. to carry it – you get the idea! Small containers that allow you to carry small amounts of this awesome putty.
Amazing Mold Putty comes in two containers, one is labeled part "A" and the other is part "B". You must take equal amounts of each part "A" and part "B" as you can see on the photo below. CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation.

Now mix them together until you have a solid yellow color, without swirling, as you will see in the photos below. Keep in mind that this product sets pretty fast – so I recommend you always have your item or items ready for molding, otherwise your mold putty will set before you start.

Mix it well.
Ready for molding!
I rolled out the Amazing Mold Putty as you can see below, then placed the objects I wanted to make molds out of on the putty. The item you see wrapped with lace, is my Bobby Brown eyeliner bottle. I wrapped the lace around it because I wanted the shape from the bottle and the texture from the lace. You can also see I took apart the plastic compact and used both lids, also the lid from one of my office stamps, and a round make up container. I also took the lid from my disinfecting wipes container. I felt these items would make for some interesting vessels.
Now, it only took about ten minutes for the Amazing Mold Putty to cure, and as you can see below, I have six (6) new molds that I can use in my projects later on. I can't wait to try these molds out on some jewelry making project, or maybe mixed media. Who knows what else I can use these molds for – and I think I will find many creative ways to use these molds. This product is amazing in so many ways, to mention a few: it's very easy to use, easy to carry, and captures every tiny little detail from the objects you use, and it sets about 10 minutes.
I really hope that this post will inspire to you give this product a try if you haven't yet. Look around you... at home, at work, anywhere you might be – you will find many things that you can use to make molds and to create with.
