I made a new mold this week with EasyMold from Environmental Technology Inc.
I found this miniature grandfather clock at an antique market a few weeks ago. I wanted to incorporate it into something wearable....but it is too heavy and a little too thick.
So I made a mold and I then I made up a batch of Envirotex Lite. I wanted my clock to be brown too, so added the Opaque Brown Pigment to my mixed batch of resin.
My molded piece is much thinner. Now I can use it as something wearable!
I sanded all the edges.
Then I pulled out my collection of Gilders Paste. This is a very simple but beautiful way to colour my molded piece.
As you can see there is an opening that I need to use.
Tomorrow I'll show you part two!
