Which amber is real?
Okay, that wasn't too hard because the real amber is already in a beautiful silver bezel.
I wonder if you have seen the free books you can download as a PDF from Environmental Technology Inc? EasyCast Resin Jewelery is chock full of amazing samples and projects. If you were wondering what to do with your finished molded items I think this guide will give you plenty of ideas.
The "Amazing Amber" section knocked my socks off. Marie creates the most amazing samples and her instructions are excellent.
This is my idea of a recipe book!
I printed this page so that I could try every "recipe" Marie included to make Faux Gems.
To make Faux Amber the recipe calls for:
EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
Castin'Craft Amber dye (a few drops)
A pinch of crushed dried rose petals
A pinch of copper metallic flakes
A pinch of gold metallic flakes
A few pieces of black polymer clay bits.
I had everything I needed for the recipe!
The only thing I added was a pinch of Mica flakes.
This is way more fun than baking.....
My mold positively glowed when I poured in the contents. I probably could have added a little less copper flake......but I still love the end result.
Isn't this gorgeous! This is definitely going to become a pendant!
