Dragonflies to INSPIRE... AMAZING Inspiration from Carole Lassak

Hi!! Carole here with a June inspiration for you. I've always been intrigued by dragonflies – the way they dart over water and flowers, the iridescence of their wings. To me, they are the ballet dancers of the garden.

The original jewelry piece for these dragonflies came from a friend who knows I'm always on the look out for interesting items to mold and cast. Each of these dragonflies was cast using Amazing Casting Resin, but I used two different coloring techniques.

For the golden dragonfly, I painted the head, legs, edges of the wings, raised areas on the thorax, and antennae with gold metallic acrylic paints. The shadings on the wings was done with mica powders mixed with USArt Quest's PPA, and painted on with a fine brush.

For the silver dragonfly, I dusted the mold with Alumilite Metallic Powders Gunmetal for the head, legs, edges of the wings, raised areas on the thorax, and antennae. Pearlescent for the center of the wings. When the casting came out of the mold I used the same mica powder/PPA mixture on the wings and recessed areas of the thorax.

There are so many different techniques
for adding color to resin castings!! 

What other technique should I try?
