Hello my dear crafty friends, Irit Shalom here and welcome to my new post made for ETI. This time it's my own " old new" technique. Making molds from clear acrylic stamps and casting them with ETI resins. So here is a finished tag I made with this technique:
First find a largr Poinsettia acrylic stamp with leaves. The one used was from Inspired by Stamping stamp company and it has a good thick acrylic material, I checked already and easy to mold without getting the whole stamp stained with purple from the Silicone Putty.
Then grab your beloved ETI Easy Mold Silicone Putty
Mix equal parts of A and B together
until you have a uniform color
I didn't have a photo of this step, but you
place your clear stamp into the putty to create a mold,
let it set for about 20 minutes.
You can see the finished mold above.
Always mix EasyCast according to manufacturer's instructions...
Measure out equal parts of resin and hardener, then mix them together.
Stir for two minutes, then pour into a new container and mix for another minute.
With the finished molds, first add the glitter inside the molds and then fill with a layer of mixed by the
ETI Easy Cast resin. Let it dry for at least 24 hours.
Make your Holidays tag and add the casted Poinsettia and leaves over it as shown.
Now make your tag and add your casted unique embellishment over it.
And here is another project made using the same mold,
but this time using an air dry white clay that I painted with acrylic paints when they were dry.
