I was given a great opportunity recently from being on the Ann Butler Designer Team of working with Tiffany Windsor's Cool2Cast product - and COOL it is! Tiffany has great videos, tutorials and tons of project ideas to explore! Check it out. And, of course, everyone knows that I am in LOVE with The Faux Quilting Stamps from Ann Butler Designs - finally even I can quilt!
Now on to my project!
Americana Paint by DecoArt in Buttermilk, Light Buttermilk, Sand, Bleached Sand, Butterscotch, Mulberry, Black Plum, Georgia Clay, Fawn, Honey Brown, Burnt Sienna and Light Cinnamon.
Ranger Ink Tim Holtz Mini Distress Pad in Broken China.
Wilton Candy Mold #2115-1561 Seashells.
Glass Votive Candle Holders - 2.
Votive Candles - 2.
Container with lid, room temperature tap water, kraft card stock, acrylic stamp block, paint brushes, palette, water basin, paper towels, Emory board, 1/2 and 1/4 measuring cups.
Following directions on the Cool2Cast package, measure, mix and pour the casting medium into your molds. I used 1/2 cup of casting medium to 1/4 cup of water and it was just enough to fill both of my molds.
Fill to the top edge of your molds, being careful not to overfill. Let set 24 hours.
Pop shapes from molds. Sand off any rough edges. I used an Emory Board.
Paint shell and starfish shapes with Americana paints by DecoArt. I used real shells that I had collected on the beach as my inspiration, but you could use photos from the internet.
Stamp two rows of the Stripes Stamp from the 2" Stripes.Dots.Hearts stamp set from Ann Butler Designs with the stripes all running vertically. Stamp two more rows alternating vertical and horizontal position.
Position the shells on the stripes until you are pleased with the placement. Cut out the stamped strips with scissors, apply Tombow Stamp Runner Adhesive to back of strip and wrap two strips around the outside of the glass votive holder. Repeat with second votive.
Attach shells to front of votive candle holders with Tombow Power Adhesive Tabs. Insert votives, lite and enjoy! I am addicted to this Cool2Cast Casting Medium and plan on creating a bunch of "COOL" projects!
