I began by creating a mold of my hand using Amazing Mold Putty. I mixed it quickly and had The Hubbums help me press it in around my hand to be sure that it was tightly fit. I did coat my hand with some baby powder to make the release a bit easier, but it really wasn't hard to get my hand out of the mold at all and it sets within 15 minutes, so it wasn't too inconvenient, either.
Once the mold was ready I brushed the inside of it with the Gun Metal metallic powder. I then mixed parts A and B of the Amazing Casting Resin according to the instructions and poured it in the mold. I allowed this to set (it only takes about 10 minutes) and then I allowed it to cool because it heats up quite a bit during the setting process and because this was a large piece it got rather warm. I then removed the cast from the mold by cutting the mold carefully (I can use it as a two part mold in the future) and removing the hand. Some parts were not fully covered with the powder so I mixed some powder with Crystal Laquer and touched up those areas by hand with a paint brush.
The detail that the mold putty captured and the resin took on is just amazing to me! I absolutely LOVE this piece!!!

Today I have a quick tutorial on how to create a fabulous way to create a monogram plus name to your project. A loooonnnngggg time ago I had purchased a "candy mold" alphabet but never used it. When I became addicted to Creative Paperclay® and Amazing Mold Putty I remembered this mold and wanted to use it. It was so old that I was afraid that it would hold up with the Amazing Mold Resin so first I made each letter using the paperclay.

|Favorite Things ATC--felting, steampunk, Amazing Mold Putty|
Terri Sproul Mixers, and Sizzix Dies--these are a few of MY favorite things!
|I began the construction of my ATC by die cutting from felt the|
ATC base, gears, hearts and other potential items that I might
need in the construction of my ATC.
|I then also die cut foam core board to use for making my mold.|
|I rolled out a large piece of putty after combining Part A and Part B.|
I pressed the foam core die cuts into the putty and went over them
with my brayer pushing putty to enable an even pour of resin.
|The completed molds looked like this. They were perfect for|
pouring the white Amazing Casting Resin. I also practiced with
some Creative Paperclay that I will use for a future project. These
steampunky molds will get quite the workout!
|I added the felt components to the felt ATC base |
by needle felting them.
|Prior to pouring the casting resin, I dusted my molds with bronze|
Metallic Powder by Allumilite. It provide this matte finish to my

This shows the mold and the new hinge adhered to the Barbie house door!! I was surprised that the Amazing Casting Resin actually bonded with the door – no gluing required.
Amazing Mold Putty and Amazing Casting Resin saved the day and made one little girl a very happy doll house landlord! :)

I Hope everyone is ready for Valentines Day! I just had to make another Valentine before the great day arrives!
I used the Amazing Mold Putty to create the hearts in a previous post and the frame I created new:
Mix equal parts A & B to create your putty and press your frame into it to make your mold:
Once it sets you pop the frame out and you have this: If you mix equal parts of the Amazing Casting resin along with a little dye and pour it into the mold you get this when it sets up: I also made some resin hearts, which I dusted the mold with pearlesent powders first and they look like this: I also cast some of the resin into a mold from the Articus company. I then put all of the pieces together and created this happy little Valentine:
You hold the key to my heart
I’m thinking this would be something that a young girl would enjoy receiving don’t you? Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you!
