Let Amazing Mold Putty Bring Out the Artist in You... by Peg Rounds
During my time on the Amazing Mold Putty Design Team, I have grown to enjoy using the products. I have created things I've never even thought of with resin! It is time now for me to move on, but I wanted to share one last fun and artistic post with everyone. Every time someone mentions the word,"artist" I seem to always think of an artist's palette. I'm not sure why other than another hobby of mine is painting and I often use an artist palette to mix my paints.
One thing that I learned creating things with Amazing Mold Putty and Amazing Casting and Clear Cast Resins is that it can be painted and I love painting them! Don't you just love that you can use paint on them, too? I created this palette to remember my time on Amazing Mold Putty and how it brought out the artist in me every time I used it.
I started by mixing 2 equal parts of the Amazing Mold Putty.
Once it was mixed well I pressed this would palette that I had into the Amazing Mold Putty to create the mold. I did add more putty into the circle so that it would keep that area open. To do that, all I needed to do was add a small ball of the mixed putty into the opening.
Next, I mixed equal parts of "A" and "B" of the Amazing Clear Cast Resin according to the directions and poured it into my mold.
I allowed it to sit untouched for 16 hours to cure.
Once it was set up, I removed it from the mold and sanded it. That's another fun thing I learned while on the team is that the resin can be sanded. I used the sanding disk shown to sand inside the hole, too, because it was a perfect fit for that.
I added some acrylic paint that I often use and let it dry completely. I even did some color mixing as I do when I'm painting something to add to the fun.
Now I have a piece that I can use in my craft area to remind me of my time on the Amazing Mold Putty team and the fun I had on it. I hope you have enjoyed all of my posts that I have shared and will continue enjoy the posts of the new members that are coming in.
Thanks to all of the Amazing Mold Putty Followers, Design Team Members and to the Alumilite Company for allowing me to be a part of your artistic adventures!
