A Fairy Frozen Charlotte Born from a Bar of Soap and Amazing Mold Putty....

Happy Wednesday and today is the day!!! Susan back and as promised, I'm here to share my "Fairy" project that is featured in a special bloghop today. CLICK HERE to go there. Don't forget...there's a special coupon for Amazing Crafting Products at the end of this post, too!

This project began with a little goodie that was included from an Etsy team-member I purchased some holiday soap molds from. She included this sweet fairy bar of molded goat's milk soap. So I have been saving this for a special Amazing Mold Putty adventure....turns out it's evolved into a whole fairyland altered shadowbox project.

I mixed up a good amount of Amazing Mold Putty to cover the front and all sides of the soap. It's about the size of a trading card and the square part of the soap below the relief is about 1/2" thick. I made the mold around the bar and I can use it for just the relief of the fairy - or as more of a sculptural piece.

A little note about the it turns out goat's milk soap is very soft and delicate {but smells lovely}. It wasn't harmed by the mold putty - but the heat of the curing process of the mold putty sort of melted the soap into the edges of it. I had to put it in the freezer for about an hour {because this particular mold is so thick} to help accelerate cooling and release from mold putty. I had to pull a little to get it started, but it worked! My bar of soap has a slight tint of yellow now, but it's a success!

Then I filled the relief part of the mold with Creative Paperclay™ and let dry. I also put this into the freezer for about 15 minutes so that I could get it out of the mold to dry faster by placing it in the toaster oven at the very lowest toast cycle a couple of times. I let it cool completely between cycles because the paperclay likes to puff up like a donut when it gets too hot. 

My little fairy frozen charlotte is born!
