How do you feel about being Queen Bee for a day? Steph Ackerman here to show you how easy it is to create a fun brooch using products from Environmental Technology, Inc.
Following the manufacturer's instructions, mix Easy Mold Silicone Putty
until a uniform color is achieved.
Roll into a ball and flatten it out, then push the metal crown into the Putty.
Leave in place for approximately 1 hour.
Mix Easy Cast Clear Casting Epoxy according to the manufacturer's directions.
Once ready, pour into the mold.
Allow the resin to set for approximately 48 hours, then remove.
I love all the details that came through with the resin,
but I wanted some color.
Selecting Ann Butler Designs Sheer Copper and
Sheer Silver Iridescents from Earth Safe Finishes,
I painted them onto my resin crown.
Next, I used Makin's Clay black clay, and created a bumble bee.
I added some touches of yellow with
Ann Butler Designs Sunshine Iridescent Powder.
To complete my brooch, I adhered the bee to the crown,
then add a fastener to the back.
A few beads were added to the ribbon which I tied through the top loop of the crown.
Thanks for stopping by today!
