New Years Party Wall Art

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hi everyone, Lyn Gill here again for this months inspirational post. This time it's my first try with resin painting/pouring & I love it! It's just a piece of Foam Board but it's the perfect thing to practice on.
Using just 16 drams of Amazing Clear Cast resin (8 drams of pt A & 8 of pt B) in the measuring cup, after mixing I divided it into into 5 different cups & colored each one separately with a little Alumilite Dye & Alumidust in different colors then poured them each(except the white pearl) back into the larger mixing cup without re-stirring. Then I pour the whole mixing cup onto the foam board at one time & allowed it to settle, tilting the board when needed to get the resin to cover the board. Then I dropped little drops of the white pearl resin(Amazing Clear Cast & Pearl Alumidust)  in various areas of the board & let it cure over night. If you try this be sure to cover your work surface with waxed paper or some other protection as this can be a messy project.
The results are stunning! I'm crazy about this technique & will definitely try more!

Gorgeous right? It was so much fun & I love the randomness of the finished two will ever be the same! Much more in the New Year I promise!

                                     Do you have any crafty New Years resolutions?

Well than you so much for joining me again this month at Amazing Casting Products & Have an Amazing New Year!...Till Next Time!

The Christmas Cabin

Hello everyone Lyn Gill here again this time with a fun Christmas project...The Christmas Cabin! It's a little Electric Tea Light Holder I created for the Holidays...

I created the main pieces from Super Sculpey, just simple shapes kind of like a paper doll house.

Then I molded them using Amazing Mold this point I was super excited about the outcome!
I then mixed some Amazing Casting Resin with some Alumilite Dye in Native American Fleshtone since I wanted a more redish brown color & let it cure in the molds. After de-molding I brushed on a little more of the dye to give it the true look of wood. I then lined the back of the window with painters tape & poured a little bit of Amazing Clear Cast tinted with yellow Alumilite Dye & let it set up overnight. For the roof pieces  I left the white color of the Amazing Casting Resin.

I added some of the details(tree, shrub, wreath, door & window shutters) using the Super Sculpey, Snow Texture & acrylic paints and created the base from Super Sculpey as well.

So fun & festive! It truly shines a little light on the Holidays!
                    What Christmas Decor will you create using Amazing Casting Products this year?
Well thank you so much for stopping by the share these Holiday memories with me & have a Merry Christmas one & all...Till Next Time!

My Family Tradition "Christmas Pins"

Hi everyone it's Lyn Gill here again. This time with my Christmas pins for this year. As I did a post on this last year I though I would continue with the tradition my Grandfather started many years ago...Christmas Pins! Now my Grandfather was a wood carver & made beautiful pin so I thought I would continue the tradition.

First I started with my original sculpt of the Christmas Tree out of Super Sculpey Polymer Clay then a created a mold from Amazing Mold Putty. I was just a simple sculpt but that's part of the tradition.

Then I began to add various glitters, Alumilite dust, Alumilite Dyes & a touch of glitter glue to the ornaments for the final results...

I always enjoy creating these little gifts for family & friends at this joyous time of year & I hope you'll give it a try. Create a new tradition this year with little handmade gifts.
Thank you so much for joining me today to share one of my families traditions & have a very Merry Christmas!
                                   What new family traditions will you add to the holidays this year?
