AMAZINGLY Jaw Dropping with Rachel Whetzel and Amazing Mold Rubber

Hello, AMAZING peeps!! It's Rachel Whetzel... this month, I get the pleasure of sharing a project I made using Amazing Mold Rubber!! I have an art project that I'm working on for Gauche Alchemy, and I needed something especially unique and interesting. Naturally, I wanted my piece to be *Jaw Dropping* (heh heh) so I turned to Amazing Crafting Products, and got busy making something I'm pretty sure most people haven't thought of.

That's right! I created a jawbone!! A long time ago, I found a jaw bone left over from a deer that had been hit by a car on one of the country roads near my house. Being the morbid human that I am, I decided to pick it up and bring it home, because I thought it might look cool in a piece of art work. Bones are popular in art, and I have used them a few times myself.

Here's what you'll need to make
a jaw or bone replica of your own:
Here is my original jaw bone that I found on my walk.

I cut a box and used it's sides to make a smaller compartment to hold the jawbone, and keep Amazing Mold Rubber waste down.

Next, I sealed all the seams with duct tape. 

Then, to keep the jawbone in place while the Amazing Mold Rubber was curing,
I used duct tape rolled and cut to hold the piece in place.

Then I used a disposable container to mix my
Amazing Mold Rubber, and pour it into the mold.


The sides of my mold were a little flimsy once the Amazing Mold Rubber was in, so to keep things where I wanted them, I used a bit of ribbon to keep my sides in place during cure time. 

When I poured my Amazing Casting Resin, I wanted to make my piece red, but when I used my Alumilite Red Dye, I didn't use enough, and my piece turned out pink. I'm still getting the hang of dyes in the Amazing Clear Cast Resin. It wasn't too big of an issue though. I just used paint to make the piece the color I wanted. 

Here's a view of the backside of the piece,
with the duct tape spots and my seams untrimmed.

Once I pulled my piece, I cut off the excess from the pour,
and sanded edges, etc. to clean up the piece.


To get the Jawbone the color I REALLY wanted it, I used some spray paint I had on hand, and got busy layering it on. 

Then the spray paint was dry, I painted the teeth a different color, and then used stain to fill in the crevices of the piece and make it look aged. 

Last but not least, I used a toothpick to make flowers and dotted swirls all over the Jaw. I finished off the flowers with more stain when they were dry.

Be sure to hop over to Gauche Alchemy in August to see this Jawbone on it's final art piece! I can't wait to share with you!
