Do you like casting? I love it! So when I heard about this cool product called ComposiMold at CHA I was so excited to try it! And they were so generous and wanted to share in the fun they gave me a 10 oz container of ComposiMold to giveaway here at Craft Gossip. I have paired it up with the new book The Jewelry Maker’s Design Book: An Alchemy of Objects by Deryn Mentock.

I was so excited to give it a try!
I thought I’d try it out by casting a Hello Kitty cap from a glue stick.
I made the molding box out of a recycled cracker cardboard box.
I taped the sides together with some painter’s tape.
I then simply heated the ComposiMold in the microwave as directed and poured it into my mold.
After it cooled I popped the original Hello Kitty head out of the mold.
I brushed the inside of the mold with some baby powder and taped the neck opening of the mold closed with some more painter’s tape.
Then I mixed a batch of plaster and poured it into the mold.
After it set I popped out my plaster casting of a Hello Kitty head. I’m not sure what I’m going to use it for but it sure came out pretty cute! I can’t wait to try ComposiMold with some other objects and casting materials. I want to make some objects that I can then use to make the jewelry designs in The Jewelry Maker’s Design Book: An Alchemy of Objects.
