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.

Hello Everyone.

I don't know about you, but I'm in love with the little resin flowers that have been hitting the market lately. They are so cute and the colors are beautiful. I want to use them on everything. But to be honest they can be a little pricey and the colors I have, aren't always the colors I need......
time to make my own...

With Amazing Mold Putty, Amazing Casting Resin, and a little Alumilite Dye, I can make as many flowers I want and in the colors I need....

I mixed equal parts A and B of Amazing Mold Putty. Mix thoroughly. Press the flowers into the putty - allow to set for 5-10 minutes then I un-molded the flowers.
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 but before I mixed them I added a couple drops of dye to Part A and mixed it in well then I mixed the resin A ans B together. I poured it into my molds. The resin sets up in approximately 10 minutes.

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers. Oh so pretty and in different sizes and colors.

Here is a ATC canvas made with my little flowers.

The Holidays are Coming

Hello Everyone.

Today I am hoping to inspire you to think about what you are doing for gifts this holiday season. There are only 111 days till Christmas, will you be ready? I have been working on these gorgeous Christmas ornaments from Globecraft Memories. These ornaments are a great gift idea for family, friends, and hostesses during the holiday season. The best part is they are fun to make.

Make the Angel Ornament heavenly with Piccolo Enamel Powders.

The Sledding Ornament can be painted or covered in Piccolo Enamel Powders. I embossed the outside rim, painted it all white and then embossed around the snowflakes.

Give this ornament to those on your nice list. After embossing Santa I painted the background red to make him pop, then I added the ever popular backers twine around the rim.

Paint the back of globe to highlight the image inside or leave it plain to see all the way through the ornament. The choices are limitless: paint, paper, emboss, or any combination of those will create a fabulous and unforgettable holiday memory.
