I'm so excited to show you a failed but salvaged project including a video for my Anything Goes project over at Anything But a Card. Just because a project failed doesn't mean you have to throw in the towel. If you remember a couple of weeks ago I had a mini challenge going on over there and you can view the post here. The challenge didn't take off very well except Lisette at MrsBeez did an awesome project. Go check that out over here. Thanks for participating Lisette, I love your pendant!
Well, anyway, back to my original post...I knew I was going to have my grandkids for a week starting yesterday and I wanted to do some crafty projects with them. I have all these crayons and thought I could melt them and make them into chunky crayons with some of my molds I have made in the past using my Amazing Mold Putty molds but alas, they were too brittle and didn't hold up well. I might have to make some CHUNKY molds and try again sometime. But in the process of this failed attempt, I did however find a new way to marble my resin pieces and you can see the video here.
I just love the way these resin pieces turned out and the texture you get from using the crayons melted onto them is fantastically AMAZING. I do however recommend that you do seal any pieces you may be marbeling with either Amazing Clear Cast Resin or some other kinds of sealer as to keep them from melting. I know I will be turning some of my pieces into jewelry and wearing them in the hot sun would just be a HOT MESS!
Here are some close up pictures of some of the resin pieces marbled with crayons. I am in the process of sealing them with the Amazing Clear Casting Resin as you are reading this post and because I had to resin both sides it will take about 2 days to finish these up. Therefore do not have the finished pieces available. As soon as I have turned them into something I will post them here on my blog also.
Can you see all the texture this gives? I cannot wait until these pieces are finished and I am able to wear some fantastic marbled crayon jewelry!
I hope you've enjoyed my post today and I look forward to reading all your comments.
Now head on over to Anything But a Card and join in some fun!
This weeks challenge is ANYTHING GOES.
