StencilGirl Meets Amazing Casting Products!

Day 3 of the StencilGirl/Amazing Casting Products Blog Hop!

I had a lot of fun with this mold making and resin casting product. 
I feel like I barely touched the surface!
My results are very 2D and as I painted these objects 
my mind was racing with so many possibilities!

I tried thinking practically of how I would use this product in my everyday arting.
I thought of adding texture and depth to covers and canvases...
I made shapes using stencils with sculpy clay...then molds...
then used those for casting....

I'm sure you recognize the Bird stencil, and the Hand stencil, 
and the Marrakech stencil, and some of the Curlicue shapes from my own stencils...

One package of this Amazing Casting Resin made all this!
The directions are simple and I went to the company's website
to watch the videos and gleaned all I could from there.

My new Daily cover started with Curlicue Allover Stencil and
Some color then some whitewash...

How classic is this shape from the Marrakech Mix Stencil?
Of course I made several because I will use this often.

More layers of colors...
More curlicues...
The numbers from this planner stencil....

Love the finished result.

If you follow my art at all, you will know I am obsessed with this Bird Stencil!

It was easy to drill holes in the resin.

Love Love Love!!

Enter the GIVEAWAY!
One lucky winner will receive both a 
$25 Gift Certificate to StencilGirl Products
