The Amazing Mold Putty Design Team, Color Tour!
All the Designers have been hard at work creating colorful pieces made from Amazing Mold Putty and Resin. At the bottom of this post you'll find the quick links to the other Designers blogs.
*Please visit each one and then post your "vote" on the 1st blog (Amazing Mold Putty) -of your favorite project.
One lucky person, (could be you!) will be randomly drawn on Monday, March 4th, after 12 noon PST.
My project is inspired from my love of hand blown glass demonstrations I always see at local fairs here in southern California.
I hope you will enjoy what I have created.
I used the following:
Amazing Mold Putty
Amazing Clear Cast Resin
Alumilite Dye - Red, Yellow and Blue
1 small jar, 1 large jar, bamboo skewers, a marker, non stick craft mat, cups and sticks for mixing, paper towels, dremel tool and clear acrylic sealer.
Rummage through your clean empty jars until you find one that might fit inside the other with room to spare. Turn them upside down and with one jar at a time, mix equal amounts of the white and yellow Amazing Mold Putty until one uniform color of yellow, and no white streaks appear. Make a pancake of the putty and working quickly, drape over the bottom of jar one. Form it in shape, working out any air pockets. Repeat process for jar two. Leave jars to set about 20 minutes.
Once firm, carefully pry off. You will notice some imperfections on the inside of the large mold and on the outside of the small mold. Mix some more putty and fix these issues. Let set before you go onto the next step.
Amazing Mold Putty, but before it has a chance to set, "stamp" it with the bottom of a marker. Half way through the set process, stamp again to 'open' up those holes.
3 clear mixing cups come with the Clear Cast Resin. I used one for each color. I poured resin "A" up to the 1/2 Tsp mark and resin "B" to the 1 Tsp mark. I mixed thoroughly with the provided popsicle stick and added a few drops of my choice of Alumilite dye. I poured directly from the mixing cup into the molds by way of 'dripping', wiping drips of the cup with a paper towel as I worked. Any leftovers were dripped into button molds I keep on hand when working with resin.
Usually Clear Cast Resin takes 24 hours to set, but since I knew they would continue to set inside the main mold, I popped them out after 8 hours.
Clear Cast Resin to the 2oz line, and part "B" to the 4 oz line. I mixed thoroughly until those swirls you see were gone, scraping the sides and bottom as I mixed. Next I poured some resin into my mold, tipping the mold to make sure the bottom was filled. Working in layers, I dropped in my color pieces, pushing them in with a popsicle stick, while pouring in the resin, careful not to get any near the skewers. I placed the filled mold in a spot out of harms way, with a stick under one part of the mold to keep it level as it cured over night.
