Making the Inverse of a Silicone Mold and 2 Piece Molds

Hello friends! I am back with Silicone molding putty! In this video I show you how to make the inverse/reverse of a Silicone Mold.  Since it is very similar technique, I also describe how to make 2 piece molds. I had planned on this post years ago, but the first video I made back then…

Yupo Paper for Silicone Molds and 2 piece Molds

Hello all! I have posted earlier abut using Yupo (and regular) paper cutouts to press designs into clay. I also took it a step further and covered the cutouts with resin (here and here) to give it a more rounded appearance so that the clay impression didn’t look so flat. In this experiment, I show…

Yupo Paper for Clay Impressions with Magic-Glos Resin

Hello all! A while back,  had done a post on using Ice Resin to coat Yupo Paper cutouts in order to imprint designs into clay. I am following up here with another experiment using Lisa Pavelka’s Magic-Glos which is a UV curable resin. You can use the sun or something like a nail lamp to…

Wigs with Bangs

Hi Everyone! This post is a completely different subject matter than my usual craft related tips and tricks. First of all, I have terrible hair (and skin for that matter haha). My hair has always been either fine and limp, or, as I got older and colored my hair, frizzy and very often both together….

Edging Paper with Ink

Happy Monday! I started blogging and doing youTube videos for my Mom and friends who couldn’t remember how to do certain techniques or wanted other ideas when they were just starting out stamping. I have morphed in multiple different avenues of the mixed-media world, but I still love stamping. And true to my original reason…
