Cheap and Easy Springy Resin Dog Collar
I used Amazing Mold Putty products and dollar store items!
Flower ice cube tray
Amazing Casting Resin
Violet Resin Dye
Hole Punch- I used a Crop-a-dile
|Cheap project. Cost $2.00 cash and supplies on hand!|
The first thing I did was take my collar out of the package and decide where I wanted the flowers to go. I marked the collar with a pen and punched holes using a Crop-a-dile.
I then put E6000 on a Q-tip and ran it through and around each hole so the collar wouldn't fray.
|The collar was woven and would start to unravel if I skipped this step.|
Next step is to pour your resin. I mixed some Violet Resin Dye with the Amazing Casting Resin to get a light purple. Then pour the resin in the ice cube tray. As it is just about to set up I place my brads in, letting them sink in a little but not so much that they fall to the bottom of the tray.
After the resin sets up I mix up some more Amazing Casting Resin, this time leaving it white and pour more resin in the mold. I only pour enough to cover the bottom of the brads, so they are sealed in.
|You can see the second layer curing.|
When completely cured (about 20 minutes) pop out your pieces and attach to the collar.
How Stinking Adorable is This?
Quick and easy project. The hardest part was trying to get one of my dogs to sit still long enough to get a photo! Two dogs (daddy and daughter) were used to get these photos. :)
What can you make with brads?
Until next time,
