Hi there, this month's blog hop Designer Crafts Connection members are playing with Amazing Casting Products . Make sure to check out all the projects and enter the giveaway.
Today I want to share some special items I made over the weekend. I love playing with Amazing Mold Putty most of the time I used things I find around the house that I think are fun and would make nice crafting items.
There are a few things I've been wanting to make for a while, but I wanted to make my very own, not something already made by someone else. I used Creative Paperclay to make some items, below you can see I made a small cross with a heart in the center, a heart and a tiny paw, the first two have a lot of texture added.
Now that I have these items, it was time to bring out the Amazing Mold Putty and make some molds, can't wait to see how these turn out, I have to be careful with the tiny paw print, it is a bit fragile and hope I can remove it safely.
You have to use equal parts of each A & B, follow the instruction on the box of how to mix this product correctly so that you get perfect molds.
I decided to use both Amazing Casting Resin and Amazing Clear Cast Resin for this project to show the difference in the finished piece.
Here are all three items, all done with Amazing Casting Resin, When this resin cures all pieces look white if you don't add any color to the resin, you can then use any type of paints to color this resin.
I also made one of these using the Amazing Clear Cast Resin along with Alumilite metallic powders in copper and silver to give it a metal finished look, this one piece will become all different types of jewelry and hopefully another item I can use to help raise funds for a cat rescue group I helped out before.

Here you can see the Clear Cast Resin, I had to make the tiny little paw again, and this time I used the copper and silver Alumilite metallic powders. Make sure to follow directions on how to mix this resin correctly, if you don't your resin will not cure.
As you can see I mixed a lot of resin, so I prepared several molds to make sure the resin wouldn't go to waste, and since I didn't want to color everything the same way, I added the metallic powders to the mold and kept the resin clear. (should you decide to color your resin, make sure to add the color to the part A of the resin first, once mixed well, you can then combine parts A & B of the resin).
This tiny piece took about six hours to cure, now the back side you see here is pretty shiny but the front I knew wouldn't be, so once this piece cured, I turned it over and added the a little tiny amount of the clear resin over it using my fingers in order to make it shiny both front and back.
I hope I have inspired you to try and make your own items to mold, these fun items I created I can use in just about any way I want. I can make some fun jewelry, buttons or use them in mixed media projects, in cards, etc. the possibilities are endless.
