Faux Jade With EasyCast

 I have another gem stone to share with you today!
 Last week I introduced you to the free e-book that Environmental Technology Inc has on their website:  EasyCast Resin Jewelery.  Marie Browning wrote and designed all the projects and I followed her recipe to make Faux Amber.
Following her recipe made me think of this movie.
And in many ways I am "the Julie" recreating the master chef's recipes.
 The Faux Jade recipe is unbelievable simple!
Measure and mix EasyCasthttp://eti-usa.com/easy-cast/.
Add Castin'Craft Green and Amber Transparent Dyes
 Add drops till you reach your desired shade.
 Add one drop of White Opaque Pigment for a semi-translucent piece.  
Mix well and pour into mold cavities.
Sprinkle a few pieces of black polymer clay bits into the cavity.
Let cure.
Faux Jade!!
I was a little heavy handed with the addition of the white pigment.  Next time I will add a little less!
Tomorrow:  Rose Quartz!

  1. Another beauty! I love it. Bold and classic. I have a fine 18K gold pin with jade pieces (that got broken) and it has the same feel as this.

  3. Great - does that mean I'm Julia Child? Great job, as always Carmi! Also, just a note, I was not the only creator of the projects in the book - designs by Barb Chauncey, Patricia Kimle, Jill Mackay, Hilary Stephens and Malana Watt Corn were also included.
