Got BONES??! An AMAZING Seasonal #Cre8time CASTING CALL... by Isabel Villarreal

Hi there crafters! This is Isabel and if your summer has been as busy as mine you probably just realized that Halloween is right around the corner. In preparation for Halloween and all the future creepy crafty stuff I plan to make, I decided to make my own scary stash of bones and skulls. Since I have a variety of skeletal needs for the season I decided to make molds using Amazing Mold Putty and Amazing Mold Rubber for casting a skeleton and a few different pieces.


I used Amazing Mold Putty to make copies of a plastic skeleton. I wanted to be able to cast individual parts of the skeleton so I cast the upper body first then took it apart to cast a separate bottom half. This way I could get a good imprint of both. Since this skeleton is about 5 inches tall with very simple shapes I used the Mold Putty to make a quick easy mold {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. Using Amazing Casting Resin, I made a perfect copy of the original plastic skeleton {CLICK HERE for mixing/preparation of casting resin}.


These skulls were sculpted from Sculpey polymer clay and then baked for a few minutes in a toaster oven. Because these are only about 1/2" tall I wanted to be sure to capture the tiniest details so I decided to mold these using Amazing Mold Rubber. It starts as a liquid so it can get into the smallest areas to create mold that yields highly detailed castings {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. Here I used Amazing Casting Resin with a few drops of Alumilite Brown Dye to make my castings.

Now that I can cast as many copies as I need since I have these handy molds – I'm ready for some Halloween craziness. With Amazing Mold Putty and Amazing Mold Rubber your creative possibilities are endless. And since they are so simple to use, making your own crafty stash is quick and easy.

What Halloween goodness
will you be creating this season
