Guess what I'm up to Now!!!!
Recently I applied to join the Design Team for Amazing Mold Putty and Woo Hoo I made it!! I now get to play with and design different things with the amazing mold putty. I had never tried the amazing mold putty before now and I will say that I was a bit nervous to start with. I've got to say though, this stuff is fun!!! It's so easy to use and the instructions are simple. One of the amazing things about this product is the fact that it's food safe. Of course you shouldn't make anything else in the mold if you plan on using it for food stuff. Here's what I started with:
Here's the super simple part, all you do is mix equal parts of the stuff in each of these two bottles. You mix it up with your hands just like you were playing with clay, kind of smoosh it together until the colors are blended.(One minute) then you roll a ball to get all of the cracks out of the putty and flatten it a bit to get started with your mold. You then take the item that you want to use and press it into the mold putty. After about 20 minutes or so your mold will be set up and feel rubbery. All you have to do then is pop out the item you used to make your mold and voila' you have a mold! Your mold is flexible too which is nice to work with.
I used three Tim Holtz keys, a little plastic black cat I had and a butterfly button.
Once I had my molds made I used paperclay and filled them. I let the paperclay dry in the molds overnight and then just popped them out!
What do you think of this?
I still need to sand the edges of the paperclay and then paint all the pieces and use them for embellishments!
I also received some clear casting resin and regular casting resin. I made a mold from a small glass leaf and mixed up the clear resin and added some dye (which we were given also to go with the resin) which I had mixed to make an orange color but it is still drying. The resin was easy to mix also and wasn't hard to clean up. I hope that this tutorial makes you want to run out and buy yourself some Amazing Mold Putty and use your Creative Paperclay to make some Halloween decorations, embellishments, or whatever your mind can think of.
