Amazing Transformations... DIY Easter Decor

Good day everyone! Brenda here and today I want to share a project I made for my Mom for Easter. I received this cross awhile back and I love it dearly, but it's a bit heavy. Of course, since the Amazing Casting Resin is so lightweight, I decided to use it to make a lighter version of the cross to use as an embellishment to top off a handmade paper heart.

How To

I started with my Amazing Mold Putty and making a mold for my cross. Since the cross is a bit larger I had to mold it in chunks. You don't want to try to mold something bigger all at once since the mold putty sets up rather quickly {CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation}. I started with the top half and let it set up; then mixed up another batch and pressed it onto the started portion and formed around to complete the bottom half.

After I mixed up a batch of Amazing Casting Resin colored with a little bit of Bubblegum Alumidust (CLICK HERE to view mixing/preparation). I poured the resin into my mold and it sets up within 10-15 minutes. I can't wait to pull it out of the mold!

For Christmas I received some Art-C products that I have been dying to try out. They are similar to rub and buff and I knew these would bring out the beauty and detail of this cross.

Now here you can see how "thick" the original cross is – and I can control how "thick" or "skinny" I want to make my resin duplicate within the mold by how much or how little resin I pour into my mold.

Because the resin piece is so lightweight I was able to attach it to my paper flower heart with just some hot glue without "smashing" the roses. I put a hanger on the back and its ready for gifting!
