|The "domino" side of Sam's bookmark and the photo side of Will's|
Today I bring you my last post as part of the 1st design team for Amazing Mold Putty. After a great deal of consideration--as I LOVE Amazing Mold Products--I decided not to reapply and give others the awesome opportunity to work for this team and experiment and craft with a truly exciting product!! I will still on my own blog post crafts featuring the putty and resins from time to time but for my last post here I made Domino Bookmarks.
Some things you look at and think, that's gonna be simple to cast...and then it comes time to do it. Let me tell you, dominoes is not under the easy to cast project.
|I thought I would simply press the dominoes into the putty,|
let it set up and voila! domino molds.
|WRONG. The air gets trapped in the little divots an you don't|
get a perfect domino mold.
|Finally a near perfect mold...there are still imperfections in this|
that can be sanded out...the hardest part the divots are awesome
and will be perfect for my project.
|I fill the molds with the Amazing Casting Resin which is almost instant|
gratification, setting up in 10 minutes!
|I pulled the dominoes out of the mold and the imperfections|
of the casts become very clear...but they are easy to remedy.
In the 12 domino you can even see where I cut off some of the
divots and added new ones!
|A little sanding with some sandpaper produces quick effects making the|
cast dominoes look almost ready to play with!
|I colored the divots in using BIC Mark-its. In hind site I might|
not do that again as when i dipped them into the UTEE it smeared
a bit. not something I would normally expect from an alcohol ink.
|The nice thing about the resin pieces is that when I colored outside the lines|
of the divot, it was easily sanded clean!
