Welcome to day 3 of this week's blog hop with StencilGirl Products and Amazing Casting Products!

For this project I used a StencilGirl stencil, Amazing Casting Resin, yarn, dollar store wreath and made an awesome Dream Catcher.

  • Mix resin and add any colorant. I added the copper powder. A little goes a long way!
  • Pour resin on a non stick surface. 
  • Using a craft stick move the resin on the non stick surface until it is a thin layer.

  • Let resin set up a few minutes, then press the stencil into the resin.
  • I used this stencil.
    You only want the stencil to sit on TOP of the resin. Do not press it in so hard that the stencil is buried and then covered by the resin....
  • Let the resin cure with stencil still in place. It is kind of hard to see but the stencil is still in the resin...

This is an example of another stencil I pressed in resin. Notice, you don't see the resin pushing through the stencil!

  • Once the resin cures, slowly peel the stencil out of the resin.

  • If you want to more of the same design you can take a short cut by mixing the two parts of amazing mold putty and using a rolling pin, flatten the mold on the non stick surface. 
  • Press the resin piece you JUST made into the mold putty. Allow to cure.
  • Now you have a mold you can make more!

  • If you want to bring out the impression then paint a dark color with acrylic paint. You can even use a sharpie to bring out the design.
  • You can accent with paint and ink
  • Get some twine or yarn, pull out the glue gun and glue the twine with the center pieces until the twine resembles the image above. You are making loops that you can use to attach the center price to the larger hoop.

  • This dollar store wreath will work perfect.
  • Place the centerpiece face down in the middle and start wrapping the yarn or twine through a centerpiece loop and then around the wreath. Repeat this until have you gone through all the loops. 
  • I didn't try to make an actual dream catcher pattern.

  • It should look something like this.

That's a neat project - I'm new to resin so I didn't know you could just spread it onto a nonstick surface like that!
