#Cre8time meets Play-Doh! AMAZING Wearable Inspiration from Aimée Wheaton
Hi all! Aimée back with a little inspiration from my three year old's play time. While cleaning up her Play-doh stuff this funky orange hardened piece of Play-doh fell out of the plastic mold and onto the table. It was super funky and cool looking and of course I thought it would be the perfect item to mold.
If you don't have a young child at home you probably don't recognize the shape, it's from a Despicable Me Minion Play-doh set. The funky bomb looking shape at the top of this necklace is from the head of a minion and the little knobs are supposed to be the hair coming out. This dried up in her set and came out looking like this...
It molded well too!! So I decided to go with it.
I painted in some metallic Alumidust into the mold and then prepared my resin. I used the Amazing Casting Resin along with some Alumilite Blue Dye – mixed it up then poured it. I let it set and then drilled holes in the top and bottom. I filed it in areas to distress it a bit and then started building my funky pendant using various chains, beads, wire and charms. Lastly, I added it to a shorter cord. This one of a kind necklace you won't find in a store!
I like that it looks substantial but it's light as a feather.
The rounded beads at the bottom are resin druzy beads I found at Michael's.
I hope you enjoyed this and I bet you'll look at your kids dried Play-doh pieces differently now! ;)
