You Can Never Have Too Many Shoes!

Hello crafters - Carole here today sharing one of my favorite shoes. This original hollow brass shoe was one of the first things I molded when I joined the Amazing Mold Putty design team. A friend of mine found it during one of his flea market excursions. I remember thinking that all the details was probably going to be too much for the putty to capture. But, I was so wrong. This putty picks up the tiniest details.

I’ve cast this shoe several different ways using the same mold. On this version I use Amazing Casting Resin, which is an opaque white when it is fully cured. Next, I painted the entire surface with USArtQuest’s Duo Embellishing Adhesive. This liquid adhesive goes on white, and dries clear and tacky. Perfect for adhering the Gilding Bitz, also from USArtQuest. I used a small, dry brush to manipulate the gilding leaf, and gentle brushed and tamped it into every curve and flourish. I added a pin back and now have a OOAK (one-of-a-kind) brooch.

These shoes I cast using Amazing Casting Resin and Amazing Clear Cast Resin. Before pouring the Amazing Casting Resin (white), I dusted the mold with Alumilite Metallic Pearlescent Powder. This, too, was finished with a pin back. The clear casted piece I intend to use as an embellishment for a card or journal.


This darling pink shoe was cast using fondant.
Yes, candy!! Lots of fun to served as an after dinner mint.

And for the same party I did shoe butter molds!!

Molds made with Amazing Mold Putty are 100% silicone and food-safe. I thoroughly washed and dried this mold before using with food. You could also dedicate certain molds for use only with food.

**PLEASE NOTE: For your safety, we do NOT RECOMMEND
using molds for food products after use with ANY RESIN products.

There is so much you can do with Amazing Mold Putty and both Amazing Casting Resin and Amazing Clear Cast Resins! Check out my Create & Craft blog for more project ideas.  ~ Carole
