Custom #Cre8time Embellishments for #MixedMedia Tapestry... by Melissa Johnson

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing another simple way to use Amazing Casting Resin in a textile project... you may recognize a couple of these buttons from my previous project {CLICK HERE in case you missed it}.

I used Amazing Mold Putty to form a mold of the buttons. I learned a neat trick at CHA when making these small detailed molds. It helps to slightly flatten out the base in the center so it lays nice and flat {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}.

Once the molds cured (about 5 mins), I released the buttons from them and mixed up some Amazing Casting Resin to fill the mold {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}.

I let the resin cure for about 10 minutes before releasing them from the molds. Then I added some clear gesso to each piece and painted them with acrylic paint. I also added some Alumilite Gold Metallic powder on top. 

And the finished product – added to some layers of fabric
that I'm adding to a mixed media art tapestry...

How do you embellish your handmade creations?
