Painted Resin Artist Pallet
Then what? I have a gagzillion molds I have made...my problem is how many pendants or necklaces does one woman really need? Ok, don't answer that... After I cast it I realized one more isn't going to hurt me and this one is really cute.
Amazing Mold Putty
Amazing Casting Resin
Resin dye- black
Pearl ex powders
Item to cast
Gather the item to cast, in this case a brass pallet paperweight.
Cast with the Amazing Mold Putty
After your mold has cured, pop out the paperweight. Gather your Pearl Ex.
Using a small paint brush, brush in the paint dabs first. Whatever is the most raised surface on the item you cast should be first, this will lessen contaminating your colors.
Mix your resin and dye according to directions. I use a craft stick and get a little black dye on the end and mix it in part B before I add A and B together. The first time I tried to use my black dye I blew the little dropper off the bottle and dumped half my dye out. Now I use a craft stick to get the dye out. Make sure the dye is mixed well, then add equal part of part A. Mix about a minute and pour in mold.
When done pop out your cast. You may have some areas you need to touch up and may not. You can always mix the Pearl Ex with a little Crystal Clear or Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to create a liquid paint to touch up spots or to just paint your resin after it is cast.
Since my pallet had a hole in it already, I used that to string a chain. To keep from using a jump ring I used tied a slipknot with the chain. I could have used a leather cord, but I didn't have one handy.
Now to come up with some other thing to use this cast for...perhaps a giant bracelet!
