Amazing Casting Products -Blog Hop

Amazing Clear Cast Resin, Alumilite Dyes and Alumidust Colorants are the feature products for this month's Designer Crafts Connection blog hop. They are all part of the family of Amazing Casting Products and "amazing" is definitely the operative word......


 
This month's creative journey starts with clear cast resin. This is a liquid that cures to a rigid and durable clear plastic finish. It can be used to create small items, like jewelry and to coat large items like a bar top. Pour resin into silicone molds to create solid resin items, or create your own mold with Amazing Mold Putty. This clear resin can also be colored with a variety of colors of Alumilite dyes and with the addition of Alumidust there are even more creative effects and unlimited design possibilities.  

Let's take a look at the projects our designer members created. We know you'll be inspired, so scroll to the end of this post for a special discount coupon to help you get started with some fun holiday crafting!

Pumpkin Paradise- a painter's delight featuring Fusion mineral paints and a sea-inspired finish


It is always exciting to welcome a new season and to greet it with anticipation, highlighting the uniqueness to each time of year.  In the fall, I love to see all the magazines, view Pinterest and see all the pumpkin-laden porches.  In Texas however, it is really too warm to set out the real deal, the parade of pumpkins become a mush in just a few short weeks (sometimes, days depending on the temperatures).  SO, I am so thankful to our big craft/box store.....
