Steampunk Octopus Mask....

Hello Everyone...

Today I want to share with you my version of a Steampunk Mask. A few weeks back a fellow AMP artist made an Octopus Steampunk Pendant this wonderful piece inspired me to make a Pendant of my own to place as the centerpiece to my Steampunk Mask.

I started out with a plain white mask and painted it tan. I then stamped on it using black Stazon Ink.  I added some gears to the left side.

time to make my centerpiece...
I mixed equal parts A and B Amazing Mold Putty. Mix thoroughly. Press the octopus into the putty - allow to set for 5-10 minutes then I un-molded the octopus.
Next I took out my Amazing Casting Resin.
Following the directions on the package. I measure out equal parts of  Part A and Part B I mixed the resin  together. I poured it into my molds. The resin sets up in approximately 10 minutes.

After I took the Octopus out of the mold I painted it black and then rubbed some gold paint to bring out the details.

At the end I added these black rhinestones....I like the way they look on the right side.

I hope you enjoyed my mask.

Lighted Spider Hat...

Welcome to the Amazing Mold Putty and Creative Paperclay Blog Hop.

I'm Molly and I'm super excited to share my Lighted Spider Hat with you.

My hat started off as a paper mache hat from a local craft store. I started by painting it grey. I knew I wanted the hat to light up, so I needed somewhere for the light to come out... windows and a door. I had a resin window form that I thought would look really cool around the openings on the hat but it was so stiff and would not bend around the hat...time to make my own window form using Amazing Mold Putty.

 I mixed equal parts A and B of Amazing Mold Putty. Mix thoroughly. Press the window form into the putty - allow to set for 5-10 minutes then I un-molded the window. 

I then took Creative Paperclay and filled in the mold.  I made 3 windows, 2 to be windows, and the third to be the door (which I cut out the inside of the window with a knife and then used as a door.) While the paperclay was drying I laid them on the hat so they would dry curved like the hat. 

I finished off the hat by painting the door and windows. I added moss and a few rocks and my house was complete...well ALMOST

It felt like the hat needed to be sitting on something... A GIANT SPIDER The spider is made from a foam ball painted black with pipe cleaners as legs and googlie eyes to finish him off.

Happy Halloween with Basic Grey

Hello Everyone.

Do you ever get a creative block? I know I do. One thing I love to reach for at those times are greeting card kits, or scrapbooking kits. You might ask why, the reason is it gets me crafting and playing again. I also love the end products, which makes me want to play more.

So next time your at the store, pick a couple up, and put them aside for that next creative block.

You'll be so glad you did.
