#Cre8time Dimensional Magic... "Be FREE" Canvas by Kristie Taylor

Hello all you lovely mold makers – Kristie Taylor here, with my first project as part of the Amazing Casting Products Creative Team! I want to show you a colorful piece I created using many of Amazing Casting Products goodies!

I started out with a bunch of things that I wanted to mold, so I could  reuse to the shapes for other projects. That's the great thing about these "amazing" products – you can mold shapes that you like... and reuse them as many times as you like! You can create things to use in your own art, as well as stuff for your friends to use!

Sometimes when I'm watching TV, I just sit and make molds of all the things that I have collected. So that means I have amassed quite a collection! 

Here is a photo of my amazing box of resin casts...

And here is a peek at some of my molds:

Yeah, I guess you could say that I might have a small addiction... LOL!

But that's ok, I don't need any rehab for this addiction! I mean just look at this beautiful project that I created with the help of Amazing Casting Products and Stencil Girl Stencils!

So let me show you how it's done. 


I started by coloring my canvas with Ranger Distress Crayons. I blended the colors with a baby wipe then placed my stencil over the wet background and wiped away color with the same baby wipe.

Next to spread some Golden absorbent ground onto the background...

then dry this all with a heat tool.

Next, I placed a Mary Nasser stencil down 
and colored it in with a distress crayon... 

then used a baby wipe to blend the color in.

Then I sprayed on some homemade spray paint, spritzed 
with water then tilted the canvas to allow the paint to move.

Dry this all with a heat tool. Now I'm ready to add some dimension!

The process to create a mold with Amazing Mold Putty is pretty easy {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. 


You just mix equal parts of part "A" and part "B" until the color is a solid color. 

This piece is going to be so AMAZING!


Now we need to make a some resin castings using Amazing Casting Resin. Just mix equal parts "A" and "B", pour together and stir slowly until one consistent color then pour into your mold. CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation.

Work fast... because once Amazing Casting Resin is mixed – it sets quickly.


It's pretty cool to watch the magic happen... it never gets old! :)


Now, we can start layering on our castings combined with some chipboard and found objects. Just keep playing with the arrangement until you find something you like. 


What you have the arrangement you like glue it all down with gel medium. Once that is dry, paint all of those parts with black gesso. Dry this layer with your heat tool.

Mix up some paint combinations that you like – I used iridescent medium mixed with several different blues, as well as some iridescent Golden acrylics.

Paint all of the parts, in streaks of colors, but keeping them blendable. I also used my fingertips and a high glitter paint by Viva Decor to hit the higher areas. This gives them a highlight and makes them stand out some.

Now we just need to make the centerpiece. I wanted the butterfly to stand out from the rest and be center stage. So, as soon as I took it out of the mold, while it was still soft, I bent it and held it there until it hardened a bit more and fully cured. This gives it more dimension.

I painted it with a coat of Gesso.

Then followed with fluorescent pink paint – and while the paint was still wet, I sprinkled on some extra fine glitter. I adhered the butterfly in the center :)

Now, I still felt like it needed a little more. So I decided to add some extra thick Embossing powder. 


I started by painting embossing medium where I wanted it to go, then sprinkle on the embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat it with a heat tool to melt it.

And that's it... we are all done!

Thanks so much for dropping by! ~ Kristie
