Sail Away With Me... #MixedMedia on the #Cre8time Seas by Melissa Johnson

Good morning! Today I am sharing a fun little project that I made using some Amazing Mold Putty, Amazing Casting Resin, and Amazing Clear Cast Resin

I was inspired to make a little vintage style sailboat after seeing some cheap neon colored plastic boats at Dollar Tree. To begin, I mixed up some Amazing Mold Putty and molded the bottom piece of the boat. I pulled the plastic sail off because I wanted to make my own. Before I added the Amazing Casting Resin, I dusted the mold with Cotton Candy and Gold Alumidust.

My mold was a little bit wonky, but I was actually good with that. I wanted the boat to look a little bit beaten and worn to really give it that vintage feel. I mixed up some more Cotton Candy Alumidust with some Golden Clear Tar Gel and brushed that on over the top.

Then I decided that I didn't like the way it was looking, so I added a layer of printed tissue paper collaged over the top and brushed with a mixture of Golden Raw Umber paint and Golden Acrylic glaze. 

While that was drying, I coated a piece of vintage paper with Amazing Clear Cast Resin using a sponge. I let that dry overnight then cut it into the shape of a sail for the boat. 

I used my Dremmel tool to drill a hole in the boat. Then, I went hunting around in my backyard for the perfect stick to use as a mast. I hot glued the stick inside of the hole and held it upright until it was set. 

And here is the finished product!
