Step 1 Create a shape to be molded
I started by creating a shape to mold using some various wood pieces. I customized a deer shape by gluing on numbers 2 and 5.
Step 2 Create a mold
I sprayed a tiny bit of Mold Release Spray to the wood to be sure it wouldn't stick to the putty. Then I pressed the wood into a batch of Amazing Mold Putty to create a mold of my wood piece. In about 15 minutes the mold is cured and ready to use. Look how great the piece looks!!!
Step 3 Apply metallic powder to mold
Using a small brush, I added Bronze Alumilite Metallic Powder to the numbers and antlers.
Step 4 Mix a batch of resin and pour into mold
I mixed some Amazing Clear Cast Resin according to the package directions and poured into the mold. It is always a good idea to have other molds handy in case you have any resin left, so it doesn't go to waste!
Step 5 Set aside to cure for 24 hours
I set aside for 24 hours to cure and viola!!! Look how great it looks it looks and it popped right out of the mold.
That metallic bronze is gorgeous! I used my Crop-o-Dile to punch a hole to add a bit of sparkly ribbon to hang the ornament with... easy peasy! This will be perfect from package to tree. What kind of handmade ornaments are you making?
