Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft and ICE Resin Blog Hop


I'm honored to be sharing an artwork using a really cool product from ICE Resin and my favorite products from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft! 

 Here are some of the items I received from ICE Resin... immediately, my mojo was super charged!  I couldn't wait to try it all!  I have never used ICE Resin before so I had no idea how to begin.  I went looking for online tutorials to get me started!  ICE Resin has some great demo tuts on their website and I found a few from their designers too!
So, with some ideas from the tutorials, I started mixing up some resin.  I let it sit for a few minutes while I prepped a stamp with some Gelatos®colors in Margarita Mix, Snow Cone, and Metallic Mint. 
I also used a mold I had and got a few papers to try some Resin paper with the left over. 

I poured the ICE resin on the stamp so that a puddle formed and left it to set.  I poured a bit more into my butterfly mold and sprinkled some Opal Fire inclusions into the wet resin.  This stuff is GORGEOUS!  With the left over resin, I brushed it onto the papers. 

Here is what I made with the papers, poured resin and molds:
 This mixed media pendant necklace was so fun to make!  I had some scrap fabric, metal pieces, and wire to create a fun piece that would be special to wear or to display. 
 Here is a close up of the resin papers.  I colored them with Gelatos®colors too and then brushed the resin on and allowed it to set.  The papers are flexible and translucent.  This is a technique I'm going to try again and make some other items with them!
 The ICE Resin came right off the stamp with the Gelatos® coloring the transparent resin just by pouring it over the rubber stamp!  It is so cool!  I cut it with scissors and could punch through the resin to attach to the metal and jump ring.
 Here is a view of the resin butterfly.  I just set it there but may use it in another piece later. I used some ribbon for the necklace part. 


 You can see the little turtle charm that I embossed and some ICE resin with inclusions and a word sticker that says "Joy".

Oh my gosh Oh my gosh Oh my gosh - I need to drop everything and go try this RIGHT NOW... Oh wait, I'm at work..... Awesome techniques! It never would have occurred to me to put the resin on a stamp - I'd have been afraid of ruining the stamp but that came out soooo cool!

I never would have thought to let it pool on top of the stamp. I love it! This makes a nicer piece than when you stamp into the ice resin that you pour on the craft sheet. Love the butterfly too.

Cheap Essays said...

Great... i found your website from google

zunaira mehar said...

Its as if you read my mind! You seem to know a great deal about this, just like you wrote the novel in it or something. I think that one could do by incorporating pics they are driving the message home somewhat, but instead of the, this is great blog. A fantastic read. Ill definitely be back.
