Wow! It has been such a long time since I have done a Live Tuesday Schmoozeday show! I was nervous but once I saw all my peeps there I was back in business baby! I had a blast and want to thank everyone who showed up and welcomed me back with such love and open arms! i am truly Blessed!
My show was about Collaging. Collage 101 to be exact and this is just the tip of the iceberg of all you can do with collage. Here are the pictures I did (I showed 2 types of collage) and almost have finished. You can add things for days with collaging!
I am also adding my replay of my show and I hope you will watch and enjoy it and if you have any questions, PLEASE ASK! I have a great group called Kellys Creative Corner. It is free to join and we have alot of fun trades , projects, swaps and so much more!!! I hope to see you there!
UGH- This is my last month on the Amazing Mold Putty Design team. I am a bit sad. I really do love this product and will miss the team. I will however, continue to use the resin and AMP because it is one of my favorite craft supplies as I say all the time!
For my last project I molded an Owl I got for Halloween. I am on of those people who have Halloween and odd things sit around the house all year ON PURPOSE! I molded just the owl off of the piece so i can then add it to a base and put it in my garden. As you can see I painted it bright colors to add to the garden of vegetables and flowers and I love having these things set around my flower beds and such. One of my first AMP projects I did was a statue I got from the dollar store so I could use it outside for the same reason!
What I did first was molded the owl. I did not mold the bottom part as I knew I wanted to attach it to a few branches from outside. (THERE IS MY ADORABLE BABY SPYRO JAMES WALKING AROUND…I COULD NOT EDIT HIM OUT!)
Once it set I then mixed my Resin and added a bit of silver to it. I wanted to see if I wanted to keep it silver or paint it.
Once it cured I decided I wanted it bright so I painted (which AMP takes paint wonderfully)the owl bright green, added iridescent blue eyes, pupils, a beak and dry brushed a darker green all over it. Now I need to do a clear coat on it and paint a wooden heart I got from the craft store and glue this to it and set it out in the garden. I LOVE IT!
I want to thank Terri Sproul and the AMP Design Team and the company itself for Blessing me with this opportunity to be on your Design Team for a year! It is by far one of my favorite products and things I have done!
Hi and welcome to my Blog, you should of just came from Tanya’s. I want to showcase a project that I did with one of my top 3 FAVORITE craft items in the world (Amazing Mold Putty and Resin) for this blog hop.
I have been asked over and over by people, “What can I make with Amazing Mold Putty and Resin?” I’ve found that many of them are so curious about this product but are afraid to buy it because they do not know what to do with it. So, it got me thinking….What do I have around the house that I or others could use with the AMP? I wanted the project to be inexpensive yet really stretch the imagination and take the fear out of this product.
SO here it goes…. I used a pencil and made earrings. YES I DID! I am also a jewelry maker and the bigger the earring, the more I love it! I made these bigger than most would like but you can cut them down or use a nail or a smaller pencil to create a pair to your liking. I really wanted to show you how this product can adapt to anything you use with it.
First I decided what to use. I used a Taylors chalk pencil and made the mold with my AMP. After I made the mold I mixed Amazing Casting Resin with metallic gun metal powder and made a cast of it (I made it two times to have 2 earrings) Once it set and I took it out I stuck a metal knitting needle in top to make hole for eye pin. It is still pliable for a bit once it sets and you take it out.
I then painted them with a sparkly glitter and once dry I added dots using liquid pearls and added a bit at the bottom where the point would of been. I didn’t leave the end sharp, it is more rounded. I took my glue gun and then added the head pens upside down in the holes and held it there as the glue dried and added some more liquid pearls and glitter on the top to give extra holding power.
I painted one more coat of sparkly glitter all over both pieces, added ear wires and they are ready to wear! I love them. NOW-think of what else you can add-beads and wire and OH MY the possibilities! I hope you enjoy this simple but fun project. Please try Amazing Mold Putty and Resin. You will look at things so differently!
