#The100DayProject Creative Fun!

Ok so I know it's been a while since you've seen a post from me but I have been busy at I've been involved with an Instagram event called #The100DayProject designed to help spark the creative process. Now this is something that most of you know I don't have trouble with but I thought it would be good to challenge myself to create something everyday and therefor hold myself accountable to that end. What a fun exercise it has been too! It began an April 3rd and will run until sometime in June I'm terrible with dates. So here's what I've got so far...sorry, it'll be a long post...
 This piece was done using the Art Alchemy Patina Effects Paste Set and some of the Art Alchemy Wax.
This piece was done using the Art Alchemy Rust Effects Paste.

This piece was a rework of an earlier piece.

This was also a rework of an earlier piece.

Thia piece was done with Swellegant.
 This piece was also done with Swellegant also using my Faux Abalone stone.

 This piece was done using Premo Gold clay which was painted after baking with Dazzling Metallics by DecoArt. The inner layer was done using SculpeyIII which is traditionally too brittle for this kind of work but works well when adhered to the Premo outter layer.

 Oh...these may be out of is the Faux Abalone from the previous piece.

 This one was done with the Art Alchemy Patina Effects Paste set using the entire set on resin.

 This one was a resin face, colored on the back with Alcohol Markers. I used a little Metallic Lustre on the piece and the stone is my Faux Jade.

 This was one of my original pencil drawings transferred to polymer clay, then layer with resin and acrylic paint.
 This one was done the same way.

As was this one.
 This one was done using the same method, I was trying to film a video of this technique and my camera was causing me problems that's why there are so

This one was done using the same technique but instead of acrylic paint between the resin layers I used water release tattoos from the Dollar store.

This was done with the same technique.

So was this one...but at last, this is the one from the tutorial!

 This was a faux stone created using the Sculpey Cab Mold.

 This is a chipboard Crown Mixed Media piece I created using Vivid Ultra Metallics by Colorarte.

 This one was done using the colored pencil transfer technique.

This was created using my Faux Raku technique.

 This is a Stamp Embossed bracelet.

This is my Faux Ivory Technique.

 This one is from my Faux Bone technique.

This is an Altered Box Mixed Media piece using Art Alchemy Patina and Rust Effects Paste sets.

This is my Faux Skeletonized Coral technique.

 This one is from my Faux Opalized Wood technique.

 The are faux Black Opal using polymer clay.

 This one is the Art Alchemy Rust Effects Paste Military Set.

This one was done using the Art Alchemy Wax.

 This one was done using the Art Alchemy Rust Effects Paste Metal set.

 This one was done with the Art Alchemy Patina Effects Paste Set.

 These wings were done using Angelina Film, a hot Iron and some Iridescent glitter.

This one was done using the Art Alchemy Rust Effects Paste Camouflage Set. As you can see I love least for this post...this one was done using the Art Alchemy Wax and a large resin Rhinestone which surprisingly did great in the oven with the polymer clay.

Well that's it for this time and hopefully it wont be so long until my next post...Till Next Time!

Hello everyone I know it's been a while but I'm back and this time with an Easter Egg project!

First I started with 2 coats of White Gesso on the Eggs stippled on with a Stencil Brush and let that dry.

Then I added some Foil Duct Tape that I ran through my Big Shot with an Embossing Folder and cut into small squares.

 I used a different Embossing Folder for each Egg to add some variation.

 Then I added a few resin pieces from my stash, some IOD Molded pieces from the Keyhole mold and a few others.
Then I began adding Acrylic Paint in 4 colors FolkArt... 481 Aqua first on the embellishments. Then some Americana Raw Umber to the rest of the Eggs and just a bit to the embellishments.

I followed that with some Delta Ceramcoat in Burnt Sienna randomly painted and just a touch of Apple Barrel Antique Gold which is more of an Ocher color than a true Metallic Gold.
These were just the acrylic paint I had on hand so use any brand you have to simulate the rust.

Now, I'm aware that Rust doesn't Patina and Vise Versa but I looked at it more like these were once pretty Turquoise Easter Eggs that got lost, buried and rusted. I finished them off with just a bit of the DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Rich Espresso and behold...Patina & Rust Easter Eggs!

So that's it for this week on the blog...Till Next Time!

Like Honey to the Bee Valentine! Crown Canvas

Hi everyone, Lyn here again with Amazing Casting Products DT and this time I've got a really cute project to share! It's a 5"x6" Crown shaped chipboard "canvas" for lack of a better term.

Now first I started off with this vintage Chalkware Salt Shaker that I picked up at a thrift store a few years ago, cute isn't he? Well I needed him to be flat on the back and light enough to use on the project so out came the Amazing Mold Putty. I quickly molded him making sure the Amazing Mold Putty covered him at least half way up the sides and then layed him down on the table to flatten the back of the putty so I could pour him "level". Once cure I removed the salt shaker from the mold and then mixed some Amazing Casting Resin and filled the mold and once that cured I de-molded it.

Then I needed some Bees which I had made for a previous project, again using the Amazing Casting Resin I poured and cured a couple of the bees.

Using a Honeycomb Stencil and some Modeling Paste I added some texture to the background. Then I decided on the placement of the elements for my design.
I then glued down the elements and added some Graphite Texture Paste around them and around the edges and let it all dry.

Then I covered the entire piece with some Gesso to give a uniform surface to paint on.

So then I painted the entire piece with some yellow acrylic paint followed by some orange acrylic paint and then spritzed the entire piece with some water and let it run down the "canvas". I finished it off with a little spray with some pearl shimmer and some Metallic Luster in the Sliver Spark color.

Now for the finish...I mixed up some Amazing Clear Cast with a bit of Alumitite Dye(yellow with the tiniest touch of orange) and let it set in the mixing cup for roughly an hour to thicken up(I needed to to be thick and not runny for this step) I placed "drips" of this "honey" in some strategic places and the tilted the "canvas" at an angle so the "honey" would "drip". You need the Amazing Clear Cast to be thick in order for it not to run off your piece.

                               Cute isn't it? I think so...what will you make for your Valentine?

Well that all for this post...Till Next Time!
