Mod Podge Molding

I read about the new Mod Podge Molds by Plaid and HAD to try them out. After a bit of research I found that to get the best results I should use Sculpey Original instead of the melting sticks that Mod Podge makes. I’m glad I took the advice. I used a wooden dowel as a brayer to smooth the clay into the mold after softening it with heat from my hands and rolling it into small balls and or/snakes, depending on which mold I was using.

After I was satisfied with the amount of clay in the mold I baked the whole thing in the oven on a cookie sheet at 275 for 15 minutes. Let them cool then carefully break away the edges of clay that aren’t part of the molded shape. Sand edges with either sandpaper or an emery board and paint as desired. These are going to make great embellishments in my art and can be used in SO many different ways you simply can’t go wrong. I’m definitely going to be buying more of these awesome molds.

I’m testing a new nail polish formula. Sinful Shine with gel tech. This manicure is 4 days old with no topcoat. Zero chips! I’m not excited about the color -  (Sailors Delight) -  but I love the wear so much I grabbed two new shades after yesterday’s dentist appointment.

Alfresco and Yours Truly are the newest colors to my expanding collection of nail paints. These polishes are extremely affordable and I highly recommend checking them out if you like your art to creep from the canvas to your fingertips!

I’m still working on my Top Hat painting… along with other goodies and will have them posted as soon as I’m done.

Tata for now. Keep Creating!
