Winter Wonderland Box

Another hobby of mine is painting so when I found this snowflake ornament at the store recently I knew that I wanted to mold it and use it on a painted box for Christmas.  The fun thing about the box is that it can be used for a gift  to give to someone or for adding a little tissue paper inside and arranging some of my favorite cookies in it for the holiday season. 

The first thing I did was to create a mold using Amazing Mold Putty

I used some of the Pearlescent Powder inside the mold hoping to give the piece an even more shiny look, but when I unmolded it, it was better than I could of ever hoped! It had a frosted look! I was and still am thrilled over that.

I combined the Amazing Clear Cast according to the package directions. 

This is what it looks like when it is first sitting for the 2 minutes.  Notice how it's a little cloudy and bubbly.

This is what it looks like after it is mixed and sitting for the next 3 minutes.  Notice how it is now clear and the cloudiness is gone?  The sitting time allows any air bubbles to move to the top and pop.  That is what is happening in this picture. 

I slowly poured the resin into my snowflake mold and allowed it to sit according to the directions.  This piece sat for 18 hours.  After that I removed it from the mold and added to the top of my box using a little Tacky glue which dries clear. 

Now I have this amazing box which can be enjoyed over and over again.
