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!
