Mold Castings with Quick Cure Resin Inspiration

Resin Casting Inspiration by Kristin Hubick
    I'll admit I'm obsessed with molds! I just had the BEST time playing with our brand new molds and my new favorite Amazing Quick Cure Casting Resin! I couldn't believe how perfect those bee legs came out on my first try!!! I did learn a few things working with the resin, and I'm happy to share!
    1. It cures FAST so work in small batches. I did 2-3 castings at a time. Popsicle sticks are your friend.
    2. You can take it out right after it sets and the pieces are STILL flexible. Remove any "resin skin" as I like to call it from over-pouring at this time. You can also glue your pieces to a curved surface at this point too! Eventually it will turn rock hard, but at first it's sort of rubbery.
    3. Don't worry about over-pouring. It peels right off the silicone molds.
    4. This is little to NO odor. I was shocked!
    5. No mold release is needed with silicone molds. I didn't have anything stick. It was perfect!
    6. Since it starts off clear and turns white when it's set, it was very easy to know when it was ready! Yay!
    7. I made all of these castings and more and barely used 1/3 of each bottle. This stuff will be SO nice if you just need a few castings really quickly.
    8. This stuff is pure MAGIC!

    Inspiration by Lina Cain!

    From Linda
    "I used a piece of old watercolor collage to make this ATC with icing paste, a stencil, a paperclay-cast frame, glass glitter, stamps and a rusty clip. The frame is painted with Finnabair's liquid acrylic and Metallique paints."

Inspiration by Kitty Tatman!  

This beautiful Moon Shrine was created by the talented Kitty Tatman and I just had to share. I'm so in love with her swirly painted background. It reminds me of a Van Gogh painting! And I adore how she attached her girl so she can swing back and forth! So cool Kitty!
