I know I haven't been here a lot lately and I'm really sorry, but sometimes life just gets in the way. I had my grandkids for a week day and night and that takes a lot of time away from any "me" time. They are 4, 2 and 11 months and take all my energy. I love them dearly and had a great time with them, but I'm glad I have my "own" time back.
So today I am showing you a quick necklace I created using the Amazing Crafting Products. You can find many tutorials on my blog on how this product can be used and today I am just showing you the mold and the finished piece. I have no idea where all my pictures went since I only use one camera. I know for a fact that I took multiple pictures of the process, but they are "poof" gone.
I started with a butterfly pin that I've had for a very long time. My stepmom gave this to me many, many years ago, so it's very special to me. I loved all the details in it and wondered what it would look like without the holes.
Here is the pin and my mold. I usually mold multiple pieces when making my molds as to not waste any of my Amazing Mold Putty. I'll do something with that eagle in the near future.
I dusted my mold (not pictured) with the Alumidust powders and poured my Amazing Casting Resin ontop.
After that cured for about 10 minutes I mixed up some Amazing Clear Cast and poured that ontop and added my rhinestones for a little added bling. This had to cure for about 24 hours but well worth the wait.
Honestly these pictures do this piece absolutely no justice. After drilling two holes in the corners with my dremel I added a gold chain and now I have a beautiful butterfly necklace.
I hope you've enjoyed my butterfly necklace as much as I have and make sure to stop over at the Amazing Crafting Products blog and see what all the designers over there are up to.
As always, have a great day and God Bless!
