#Cre8time Seaside Dreams... an AMAZING Remelt tutorial by Tracy Alden

Hello! Tracy here with another Amazing Casting Products tutorial! I recently started to change the decor in one of my bathrooms, going with sea life, drift wood and glass themes in shades of blue, white, gray and brown. I noticed that one of the walls was missing a little something. With the help of Amazing Remelt it was easy to mold some of the sea shells and glass bobbles I already had as decorations in the room to create that final decoration!


Using a plastic lunch tray as my mold box, I carefully placed sea shells and glass marbles on the bottom layer of the tray, making sure none of the pieces reached the top lip of the tray.

I heated the Amazing Remelt in the microwave, in the container it comes in. I poured the heated Remelt into the plastic lunch tray with the shells and glass pieces from a 12 -15 inch distance – the distance gives the Remelt a chance to release more bubbles before cooling. A few of the shells floated, because of trapped air bubbles, all I had to do was push the shells back down with a stir stick and the air bubbles rose to the surface of the still-liquid Remelt.

I let the Amazing Remelt cool until no longer tacky or warm – putting the tray in a refrigerator can speed up this process. Once the mold was cool and no longer tacky, I carefully removed the Remelt from the tray and flexed the mold until the glass pieces popped out.

Some of the Remelt had gone between the glass pieces and shells – requiring me to cut and remove the excess Remelt with sharp crafting scissors. I trimmed the uneven edges and made sure there was no loose or over hanging Remelt.

Using a small cosmetic brush I dusted the inside of the mold with Bright Blue, Ocean Blue, Interferance Blue and Pearl Alumidust

I mixed up a small portion of Amazing Clear Cast Resin, making sure to slowly stir to reduce air bubbles and let it sit for 5 minutes. Using a toothpick, I put a tiny drop of Blue Alumilite Dye into a small mixing cup and poured a portion of the pre-mixed resin in it. I poured un-tinted Amazing Clear Cast Resin in the mold and used a toothpick to drop in small portions of blue tinted resin in different areas to create visual contrast.

Once Amazing Clear Cast Resin was cured I carefully removed it from the Amazing Remelt mold and trimmed any uneven edges.

Using a plain gesso covered canvas I applied Viva Decor Inka Gold Metalic Rub, Silver and StazOn Blue Hawaii Ink with a Cosmetic Sponge.

I glued on the casted resin piece to the canvas with Beacon Gem-Tac Adhesive and let dry. I added some Liquitex Gloss Varnish over and around the edges of the resin and sprinkled on Stampendous Crystal Snow White Glitter.

With as easy as I found this to do I am now looking at what other decor items I can create with Amazing Remelt!
