Faux Opal Paper Weight with EasyCast®

I love creating Faux Opals with EasyCast® to create beautiful jewelry pieces, that I thought I would like to try it on a larger scale.  Thus, a paper weight came to mind.

I think the result as you can see is stunning!

Materials:

Project Instructions: 

Spray mold with mold release.

Measure out equal parts (1 ounce each) of EasyCast resin and hardener, then, stir together for 2 minutes.  Pour mixture into a second cup and stir for another minute. 

Stir in cut up Fantasy Film.

Pour into mold.  Move fantasy film around if needed or add more at this point.

Remove any bubbles that rise to the top with a lighter.  Let set for 12 hours.

 Measure out equal parts (1/2 ounce each) of EasyCast resin and hardener, then, stir together for 2 minutes.  Pour mixture into a second cup and stir for another minute.  Stir in a drop or two of the pigment into the mixture.

 Pour mixture into the mold...

covering the first layer completely.  Use a light to remove any air bubbles that may rise to the surface.  Let set for 12 hours.

 Remove from the mold to see a beautiful paper weight.

In this photo you can see the black layer.

 I love how it turned out and...

that you can see different colors depending upon the angle you are looking at.
