EYES are WATCHING! DIY Googly Eye Light Switch Plate Cover by Michelle Frae Cummings
Hi everyone! Michelle here with another great tutorial that you can use for Halloween or just for fun!
Mix ample, but equal amounts of the the Amazing Mold Putty until no white streaks appear. Flatten out to a rectangle shape and a add a small ball of putty in the center for where the plates holes are. Press plate in place, pushing the extra putty out through the holes. Let set about 10 minutes. Remove plate and patch up any rough spots with extra mixed putty (this also adds textures for the resin colors). Trim where needed and stick your wire into the putty for the screws. You'll want to build up those holes with a little extra putty as shown. Add some coils of putty to the walls of the mold and press in place with the popsicle stick provided from the resin mix. Let harden completely before adding resin.
Using the measuring cups and popsicle stick provided, mix thoroughly 1 Tablespoon each of parts "A" and "B" of the Amazing Casting Resin and 5 drops of the Alumilite Fluorescent Orange Dye. Pour into the mold. Most of the resin will spill into the sides and only cover parts of the plate. This is OK.
Let the first color set while you mix the next color.
For the green, mix thoroughly 1 dram (alternate measurement on measuring cups provided with resin) each of parts "A" and "B" of the Amazing Casting Resin and 3 drops of Alumilite Fluorescent Green Dye.
Carefully pour, drip by drip onto the areas not covered by the orange resin.
Quickly place your googly eyes onto the tacky resin before it cures. I put a little bit of adhesive on the end of a wooden skewer to use as a googly-eye-picker-upper. :)
Next mix thoroughly 2 Tablespoons each parts "A" and "B" of Amazing Clear Cast Resin and fill in the mold, making sure to cover every googly eye. Let this set at least 8 hours in a undisturbed spot. Remove from mold and trim off any sharp points.
Find a place in your house where it can be used often enjoyed!
