#Cre8time Transformations... Dishing Up a Shamrock Ring Holder by Brenda Burfeind

Good day friends! Brenda here from Creativity is a State of Mind and I'm going to show you how to use a failed project to dish up a shamrock...

It all started with a butterfly cutout I had. I really wanted to turn this beautiful butterfly into a stamp. I mixed up some Amazing Mold Putty and you can see mixing instructions HERE. I pressed my butterfly cutout into the mold putty and waited for about 10 minutes.

When I pulled the butterfly out I realized it didn't look perfect, so I cut around it anyway using regular scissors. There were definitely some imperfections and when I stamped it, it didn't give me a clean look (sorry no picture of the stamped image). I really didn't want to waste all that mold putty and so I thought and thought about what I could do with it.

I remembered a tutorial I made for this Valentine's day pendant.
You can go and view it HERE!

I used the same concept again. This time however, since the Amazing Mold Putty had already set up, I couldn't get my heart clay cutter to go through the putty. I could get a bit of an indentation of the shape and then I just used my scissors to cut the hearts out. Since the putty was so thin, it was very easy.

Here are my hearts and I even used an edge of the butterfly to create the stem for my shamrock. You can see that it had even been stained with the ink.

Now, the hoarder I am... I had these cute little ceramic
coasters that I purchased eons ago at a thrift store.

I tried hot gluing the putty pieces down, but they just popped right off. I sprayed some Krylon Spray Adhesive to the pieces and glued them onto the ceramic coaster. That worked like a charm!

Then I mixed up some Amazing Casting Resin and poured it into the dish, just enough to fill around the shamrock shape. There is a video HERE you can view on mixing instructions.

That set up to cure for about 10 minutes and then I gently pulled the pieces out.
Pretty cool huh?


Then I mixed up some more Amazing Casting Resin with the Fluorescent "FLO" Green Dye and filled in the open areas. That also set up in a matter of minutes.

And here you have an Amazing Shamrock ring dish!

I am so excited about my (failed) fabulous Shamrock ring dish!
