Wearable Skull Candy...

Hello everyone! Kristie Taylor here today... and I just love Halloween! It is by far my favorite holiday! Why you ask... well its because I have always been a little weird in the fact that I like skulls, spiders and all things just a little bit creepy – you may have noticed that in my art?!

For today's project, we will take two molds from my stash and use them together to create a fun necklace that is just a little bit creepy and perfect to wear for all hallows eve!

How To

Lets start by mixing some Amazing Clear Cast Resin. It's pretty easy... just measure out equal portions of parts "A" and "B".  

Then combine and mix together, stirring slowly until there are no streaks or cloudiness. Set this aside for five minutes so that any bubbles created while mixing can rise and escape.

Divide clear resin into two cups; then to one cup I add a very small dot of Alumilite Violet Dye.

To the other add a very small amount of Interference Purple Alumidust. I stir slowly to incorporate color, then pour these into my two molds – I fill the skull with the lighter color and the frame with the dark violet. I set aside to cure (this usually takes about 24 hours).

Once cured, I de-mold the beautifully detailed castings and apply some metallic rubs with my fingertips to highlight all that yummy texture!

Then use a strong glue – I like Beacon Powertac to adhere the two resin pieces together and also to adhere a heat embossed chipboard shape to the back.

To complete, I add findings, a chain and some sparkly beads. Just like that, we have a uniquely cool piece that is just a little bit spooky!
