Molds....and not the fungi type

The past 4 years I've been creating pendants using resin on top to give them a glass-like appearance. Every time I make a batch, I hate throwing out the extra resin that is left over. Recently, I purchased a few molds (ones I found on Etsy) and started using the extra resin to make resin pendants. Decided to research (oh, how I love thee, Internet!) and found out how to make my own. This is my first mold attempt.
First I bought the mold making set.

Next, I took out equal parts of A and B.

Smushed the 2 parts together for 1 minute

Flattened the mold putty and embedded the object I wanted a mold of (in my case, a starfish).

Here's the finished mold. Now I just have to wait 24 hours before I can pour my resin in to create a starfish pendant!! Will post pictures when it's done!!!!

Love this!

My friend, Yvette, over at Aqua Seventy6, just created the cutest fabric button ring! This is just not something in my realm of creativity since fabric and I don't quite see eye to eye. Yvette & fabric, on the other hand, are fabulous friends!!! Take a peek at this adorable fabric ring!

Yvette also creates beautiful everything pouches, kindle cases and more! Check her out at Aqua Seventy6.

Creations on the move

Was approached by a friend (thanks, Teresa) and was asked to create some custom logo items for a local company to raffle off for an upcoming event. This event is Forbes Riley's Empowered Women’s Workouts for Charity and all proceeds are going to Erase Hate Tampa Bay.
I had a blast making a few different pendants and a keychain to help out the event. Here's a pic of some of the items...
Hope everyone likes them come Feb 29. Oh, and if you're in the Tampa area and would like to know more about it, check out the event post here.
