This is my third Faux Gemstone: Rose Quartz!
If you have been following the blog I am using recipes created by Marie Browning to create gemstones made with EasyCast.
Rose Quartz begins with a small batch of EasyCast.
Add Castin'Craft Red and Pearl Transparent Dyes for a light pink hue. (I noticed that my Red Pigment was overpowering the mixture so I literally used a tiny drop on the end of a tooth pick instead of the full drop from the bottle.)
Add a pinch of Metallic flakes.
Mix well and pour into mold cavity.
I let this set up for a little over 30 minutes so the resin was starting to gel.
Then I mixed a tiny bath of EasyCast and added White Opaque Pigment.
I dropped a little of the white mixture into each mold and swirled the mixture!
I had no idea how the gems would look out of the mold. I was so happy to see that they turned out great. No two will ever be alike!
