Dinosaur Magnets Using FastCast™

Good morning, Donna Budzynski here with you today  and I would like to share with you a really fun project using FastCast! This is a new product and you are going to LOVE it!!!

With school starting, you know those kids will have plenty of pictures to hang on the refrigerator and I am going to show you a fun way to hang them!

                             
We are going to make some dinosaur magnets!

Let's get started!

Materials:
Mixing Cups
Stir Stick
Mat or Newspaper (to cover work area)
Mold-I used dinosaurs
Magnets
Power Tac Adhesive
Acrylic Paint - Americana
Varnish
Sandpaper

Instructions:

1. Gather all materials and cover work area.


2. Pour equal amounts of part A and part B of FastCast™.

3. Working fast as this starts setting in just 2 minutes.  Pour part A into part B and stir for 30 seconds scraping sides and bottom.  Now pour all back into part A cup and stir for an additional 30 seconds.
4. Pour into mold


5. Wait 10 minutes.  Yes, it is that fast!  Amazing!
Take out of the mold. Lightly sand edges of the backside.


6. Paint and varnish.

7. Adhere magnets.


8. Hang them up and enjoy!


The details were picked up like magic from the mold!


Another option for this is....for children birthday parties, you could make one or two for each child to paint and bring home for there own magnets.  Prize and a project all rolled into one!

Tell me what you think, I would love to know!

Thanks for stopping by!
