Spring Wedding Trinket Box

Our family is so excited in the planning of our middle daughter's wedding this April. There will many goodies to distribute, so I made this little trinket box for "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue." I pulled out my faithful jars of Amazing Mold Putty A and B. Be sure to grab equal parts of each so that the mix is correct. Knead the 2 parts together til uniform in color.
As you can see I made 2 perfect replicas of an egg half and antique button. I added tan paint to the egg and ivory to the button. I also applied 3D Crystal lacquer to give the button some shine.
This is the bottom half of the box. I lightly stenciled a hexagonal motif in warm brown ink to add interest to the box.
Although small, I think it is just the right size for presenting a tiny treasure. The eggs are in keeping will the wedding theme birds, eggs and nests. Amazing Mold Putty is always a constant in my craft corner. Have a Happy Easter!!!!!!!!!!!

Paperweight artwork

Welcome to the Amazing Mold Putty Blog Hop.  We are so glad you came.  Be sure to hop by and see all the wonderful art work.
I decided to use casting resin for these projects.  Use package directions in measuring amounts and projects will turn out nicely.
This is the first mold I made to form the half-circle paperweight.  As usual use equal parts A & B of molding medium and knead until mix is a uniform color.
Here is a picture of the mold and finished paperweight.  The photo doesn't do the sparkly surface of the globe justice. The casting medium accepted beautifully the colors added making lovely jewel tones on the paperweight.
Maybe a better picture of the globe.  You can see the purples, pinks and greens.
I did not show a mold this time of this antique hand but the process is the same, I used a moss green patina and antique gold to accent the piece.  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the other artists.
