Amazing Casting Products: #Cre8time Play in #Polymer Waves of Blue... by Lyn...

Hi Lyn Gill here again with a project I've had on my mind for a while. The thought of 2 or more resin disks floating together for a pendant... now how to accomplish it? I started this project off with a simple design, created my pieces to mold from polymer clay and got to it!

Using some clay cutters I created this simple design of a hammered metal look for the outer ring and lined waves for the inner disk, then molded them with Amazing Mold Putty {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}.

I dusted the inside of the mold with the Alumilite Gun Metal Metallic Powder and mixed a small amount in with my resin mix. I used Amazing Casting Resin for this part {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation.

I love the shimmery look of this part... LOL.

I mixed up the Amazing Clear Cast Resin with some of the Blue Alumilite Dye and poured it into the outer mold {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. With the last little bit of resin in the cup, I poured a wave of blue onto the inner disk. I waited until it was a little thicker before pouring it. Then I let these set overnight.

After some sanding and cleanup here's the result – a super fun and interesting pendant! Maybe a little Summery, but I'm always dreaming of Summer... LOL.

What a mix Amazing Casting Products carries to bring your imagination to life!

Fall Leaves & Faux Leather

Fall Leaves & Faux Leather
Here's my Helping Artist project for DecoArt products for the month of November. Click the photo for the link to my YT video. This Altered Jewel Box was a fun one, the faux leather is from a brown paper bag & many of the embellishments were handmade by me as well. Just a few fabric leaves from the store & some random buttons & your on your way!
It's a short posting this week as we are all getting ready to celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday so I want to wish each & every one the Happiest of Thanksgivings & to say how much you all mean to me.
Thank you & Happy Holidays!...Till Next Time!

Altered Bottles Fall Table Decoration Tutorial

Oh it's a two-fer today...2 posts in one I figured I better get busy because here in Texas Fall is very short. 2 weeks ago it was still Summer & I have a feeling Winter is right around the corner.
I took some plastic vitamin bottles, altered them & created some table decor for my table. Just some gesso, hot glue gun detail, some acrylic paint & some fabric leaves is all you'll need to create these fun altered bottles.
Just in time for Thanksgiving! Thanks so much for stopping by today...Till Next Time!

The Whispy Face

I did some resculpting on my face mold recently & made a mold of it using Amazing Mold Putty.
I absolutely love the results! Using Premo by Sculpey I made 2 pendants using the mold with some added details for the hair & leaves blowing in the wind.

These 2 pendants will be available in my etsy shop early next week so stop on by if your interested! Thanks for spending a few minutes today with me...Till Next Time!
