Dress up your #Cre8time... Bejeweled Hair Clip by Aimée Wheaton

Hi all! Aimée here today to share this little sweet piece created from broken costume jewelry. I thought I'd mold it to see how the Amazing Mold Putty would do and it didn't fail!! Check out the details below!

I was bummed when this broke, but I kept it to use for molds. I'm sure I'll use the pieces for other projects.


I mixed two equal parts of Amazing Mold Putty and formed it around the gem {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. The photo on right shows the awesome detail it picked up. I love how it caught all the facets of the gems.

Next, I took some cotton swabs and colored in each individual gem with some Alumidust. I chose copper, bright blue and deep purple.

Detail of all the different shades.

I mixed equal parts of the quick curing Amazing Casting Resin {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. It cures in no time!! I demolded and below is what you see :)

Add some hot glue and add it to an alligator clip and it's done! 

This would be great for customizing outfits with matching accessories!

I also wanted to share this amazing casting of pony beads on a piece of yarn. I love how amazing the Amazing Mold Putty is!!!

Let's see what you can create
with your broken treasures,
Amazing Mold Putty
and Amazing Casting Resin!

Putting on the #Cre8time Glitz! Fabulous FAUX Druzy by Brenda Burfeind

Good day fellow crafters! Brenda here from Creativity is a State of Mind and I'm so glad to be back showing you my newest fun addiction. I've taken a bit of a break from blogging but not crafting – so I will have lots to show you in the upcoming weeks. I hope you will jump over to my blog soon as check out all the fun things I've done. But while you are here, let's see what I have in store for you today. I've been thinking Valentine's Day projects and the red just fit my mood.

For this little number... I started out with Amazing Clear Cast Resin and the Alumilite Red Dye and an empty bezel.

I added about 2 tiny drops of the Alumilite Red Dye to the Amazing Clear Cast Resin after it was all mixed up (you can view mixing techniques HERE), and it gives it a beautiful rich red color. I then slowly poured that into my bezel and let this cure overnight. The clear cast resin does need to cure for a good 24 hours depending on how thick it is.

Meanwhile, I took one of these glass globs and let my frustration out on it. Seriously put your glob in a baggie and after a couple good whacks with a hammer... it's broken up nicely. Please don't forget your eye protection!


Next I took my silver alcohol ink and added a few drops into an empty pill container and added a few glass chunks. I also did the same with the cranberry alcohol inks and more glass pieces.


Swish your pill bottle around and pour your alcohol out (I actually pour it into another bottle and use it for my next project), and then pour your glass shards onto a paper plate and let dry. Since my resin has to cure overnight, I just left my glass chunks to dry the same time.

Once the resin has cured I mix up a tiny batch of more Amazing Clear Cast Resin and paint a layer over the cured resin... then the magic starts! I carefully place the glass pieces into the resin. Building up in the middle and then layering around to fill the entire bezel. I used mainly the red chunks and added a few silver chunks here and there. Then I let this cure again for another 24 hours.

I added a vintage chain that I got at an auction of some broken jewelry.

Isn't this gorgeous?

I absolutely love this bracelet!!
Honestly these pictures do it no justice at all. 

How do you customize your jewelry?

So I hope you've enjoyed my project for today! I invite you to stop over to my blog, Creativity is a State of Mind to see all that I've been making. Thanks for joining me today and I would love to hear your feedback on today's bracelet. What color faux druzy would you make?

Until next time... ~ Brenda

A Nightmare AFTER Christmas... AMAZING Inspiration from Lara Hjorthoy

Hi Friends! It's Lara here to share some inspiration with you... how about a Nightmare Before (or is it, after?) Christmas themed art?!!!

I am super excited to share this with you! I have a show coming up in a Gallery in Portugal, called Penumbra Gallery. And being such a fan of Nightmare, as I know all the Amazing Ladies of Amazing Casting Products Team are, I was thrilled to be accepted into the "A Night at the Movies" show! 

I sculpted my version of Zero in Sculpey {polymer clay} and then cast a mold of him in Amazing Mold Rubber, then used Amazing Clear Cast Resin to cast up my sculpture of Zero, wth a bit of PearlEx Iridescent Blue Powder added into the mix. I painted him up using oil paint, and of course added a glow-in-the-dark Sculpey nose! Presto! A glittery, translucent, ghostly Zero, heading out on a long journey to Portugal! Have a safe trip Zero! 

Have you made any fan art using Resin?

Be Safe out there this winter and
Stay Inspired Friends! ~ Lara

How do You #Cre8time Love Thee... Valentine's Day Conversation Hearts by Lyn Gill

Hi everyone! Lyn Gill here again – Let's have a conversation about... what else, "Conversation Hearts"! A quaint Valentine's tradition, these little candy hearts with a message for your loved one inscribed on the front. So why not create them in resin?

First I sculpted the hearts out of Super Sculpey. I made them double-sided so I could mold two off of each heart.

Using Amazing Mold Putty, I created a mold for each side of my sculpted hearts. I then mixed up Amazing Casting Resin with some Alumilite Dye in two cups – one colored red and one pink. In a third cup I left some resin uncolored, then poured into the molds and let cure. After cured and removed, I mixed up some Amazing Clear Cast Resin with some Alumilite Dye in Red and some red glitter to make the last two hearts.

I used acrylic paint to fill in the lettering with a fine detail brush. I created a bowl using Cat Kerr's demo from CHA using an embossing folder and Amazing Casting Resin, with resin formed over a bowl while still pliable. What a super cute & fun project!

What Valentine's Day projects
have you come up with this year?

Well thank you so much for stopping by... Till Next Time! Lyn

As usual, you can find more of my work on my blog LynzCraftz

For the Love of #Cre8time Recycling... DIY Art Molds by Tracy Alden

Hello! Tracy here to share some inspiration using Amazing Casting Products! Notice the interesting resin tiles and the Amazing Mold Rubber molds? Curious on how I made them? Let me introduce one of my favorite sources for inspiration... my recycling bin. Seriously, some of my best pieces of artwork gets inspiration from objects many people think has no value!

Here is a small selection from my recycling bin from this past month. What these objects all have in common is the potential to become a mold, texture or embellishment for a piece of art. I could mold the side of the light bulb to create a dome pendant, those trays can be bases for printing plates, the bottom of bottles and lids make great molds for embellishments, many pieces can be cut up or glued together to make mixed media projects! 

Grabbing just one type of recyclables, in this case a plastic spacer most likely from some sort of packaging, I noticed it had a great shape. Smooth on three sides, even in shape and thick enough to create a mold with depth for layers.

I glued the spacers into a plastic sushi tray {also from my recycling bin}, which made the perfect mold box! Carefully following the instructions, I mixed up a kit of Amazing Mold Rubber and slowly poured it into my mold box. CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation. In the process of mixing, the Amazing Mold Rubber had formed bubbles. To quickly pop the bubbles I used a heat gun to slowly heat the uncured mold rubber to pop the bubbles.
**You can use either Amazing Mold Rubber or Amazing Mold Putty for creating molds from recyclables. Mold Putty will create a matte to satin finish (food safe!) mold and Mold Rubber will create high gloss and detail (non food safe) mold.

Once the Amazing Mold Rubber was completely cured I removed the plastic pieces from the tray. When I gently removed the pieces from the Mold Rubber they came out rather cleanly, requiring very little trimming of the mold rubber with craft scissors. Now don't think I threw away that tray or bits of plastic! They get saved for a future project or at the very least go back into the recycling bin!

I went ahead tested out my molds and used Amazing Clear Cast Resin mixed with pressed flowers, glitters, alcohol inks, beads, Alumidust powder and Alumilite Dye. Happy with my results I can use these molds for things besides resin such as clay, paper mache, embossing powder and more. 

So many objects normally only thought of as recycling can be repurposed to create molds for your art... and the creative possibilities are endless!

What AMAZING arts and crafts can you create?

Until next time, safe travels! ~ Tracy
