How to Catch a #Cre8time Leprechaun... by Bridget Cordero
What does St. Patrick’s Day mean to you? Coming from an Irish family, it was a celebration with corned beef, potatoes, carrots and cabbage along with decorations of horseshoes, Leprechauns and shamrocks. It is said that Leprechauns were fairy sized shoemakers and if captured by a human they could grant that person 3 wishes for their freedom.
For the upcoming holiday I’ve created a leprechaun hat and
used resin embellishments to decorate the piece.
First I created the hat with felt and cardboard. Knowing I needed a gold buckle, I found an old key ring that I took apart and molded. I used Amazing Mold Putty to create the mold of the buckle. It worked beautifully. CLICK HERE to view mixing and preparation.
I then poured the mixture into molds and waited for them to cure. The dye colors mixed together made the perfect green. CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation of Amazing Casting Resin.
To make the horseshoe I molded an old Christmas ornament that I found (see mold picture above for the original). I brushed Alumilite Copper Metallic Powder into the mold as I did with the buckle, poured in some Amazing Casting Resin and waited for it to cure. I embellished the horseshoe with my handmade shamrock and also some small green resin leprechaun feet that I made (using same process as the shamrock).
Once all my pieces were done I embellished the hat with them!!
