ComposiMold and The Mixed Media with Gelatos kit!

Hello my artsy friends!  I am sharing my necklace that I made using our product feature, ComposiMold and the Mixed Media with Gelatos kit that I designed for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft!  Since I have created the original artwork in this kit, I decided to challenge myself and create a wearable piece of artwork.
 ComposiMold was a new product to me but I immediately knew I wanted to create something with wings.  I loved how easy it was to use... just heat, stir, and pour over items (make sure the items are adhered to the bottom of the container before pouring).  I put the mold in the refrigerator to cool faster.  You know me, I hate to wait!
 Here's what it looked like when firm and removed from the container.
 I took the Cold Porcelain clay from the Mixed Media with Gelatos kit and mixed some with the Gold Champagne Gelato® and pressed it into the wings.

 I used some of the map tissue paper to cover some beads that just weren't that pretty!  I used the Textural Accents Gel Medium to adhere the paper.
 Next, I spread I light layer of the Whipped Spackle with the palette knife on a section of the wood veneer board and then placed the stencil over the layer and added more Whipple Spackle. 
 Once dry, I added the three Gelato® colors and stamped with Stamper's Big Brush pen over a rubber stamp. I coated the entire thing with more Textural Accents Gel Medium.
 Here is a good photo of the texture created with the Whipped Spackle.
 I cut out the main shape and adhered it to the back of a chipboard doily shape from UmWow Studios.  A gear, brad and the molded wings were added.

 See that bead I covered?  So cute!
 I used a hinge and stamped on it with the Stamper's Big Brush Pen.  Just a fun accent.

I can't wait to wear this with a fun outfit and show off these colors and fun products! I have a blast creating this unique wearable art and I hope you enjoyed it today!  Leave a comment on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog about how you plan to use both products, and you'll be entered in a giveaway to win a set of the ComposiMold and the Mixed Media with Gelatos Kit.
