I hope every one is having a fantastic week. I am sure enjoying the weather here in Central Indiana- a perfect 75 degrees! Friday looks like it may be the day I get the garden tilled, and then I’ll have a few gardening posts for you now and then in addition to this craftiness!
Today I wanted to share with you something I’ve been referring to as my “super secret project” over on Facebook (are you a fan yet by the way? Click here to become one!) and I’m pretty excited to share this with you because I’m really looking forward to some feedback.
I’ve been wanting to expand the Sunday Afternoon Housewife line a bit, and I figured a really fun way to go about it might be making my own molds to cast resin in. I really enjoy working with resin because it always keeps me guessing every single time I try a new project! Anyway, I purchased some mold making materials and then went about casting my own mold and then casting resin inside that mold to create unique resin pendant.
My first go at it has been only moderately successful (and by first go at it, I mean after something like 5 times of ruining molds before I got the hang of this new medium!). So, I made a simple cast of an old metal owl pendant I own to see what would happen. The end result? Well, take a look:
So, I’d love to know what you think about these. Are these something you like or think you would wear or possibly buy as a gift? Or, do you find them ugly and wonder what on earth I was thinking? Honesty is the best policy around here, so please share your thoughts! Of course if you like these, I’ll make more in more colors and probably work on perfecting the process, and if you tell me you hate it, well, then I’m back to the drawing board! Comments, please!
