Crystals galore.



I still don't think this is enough!


I just finished a new mold with 6 larger crystals and was able to start casting tonight.  !!!


Smallest and Biggest.

The buffalo mold will be done tomorrow (if all goes well).  It's my first 3 part rubber mold so it's definitely stressing me out.  Keeping my fingers crossed.


Worked on this today too.. my sister is slowing becoming the star of my art.

Crystals, Mountain Vaca and Gone Fishing


I finally finished this one featuring my grandma and grandpa standing in front of some mountains (from previous post). The triangles on it were about an inch big so it took me over a week to complete where the rest of them I've been knocking out in a few days.
Bigger triangles = less work.

I just started this one featuring my mom.


I'm totally loving the pattern her arm is making. And the bobber on her fishing pole is adding a nice dot/highlight effect in the pattern. I'm about 1/3 of the way done with this one.

Yay art!

SWEETNESS

Just cast these crystals in resin with a touch of purple dye. I think they look pretty legit.
So excited about this new project!
