Blog Hop for Amazing Casting Products & Stencil Girl Products


Hi everyone Lyn Gill here from LynzCraftz. Welcome to the Blog Hop! I have a project to share with you today using AmazingCastingProducts in collaboration with StencilGirlProducts
I first started with the sculpture, Sculpted with Super Sculpey Polymer Clay & then baked. I then coated her with a gloss sealer to create a better finish on the final mold.
Then I formed the mold using Amazing Mold Putty. I first covered one side of the sculpture & then carefully added more Amazing Mold Putty to the other side. I knew I would need to cut the mold at least part way up to get the piece back out but since I'd planned it I knew it would be fine.
 So here's the finished piece...I used Amazing Clear Cast Resin & you can see she's beautifully clear.
She rests on a pedestal made of corrugated cardboard ...unpainted. I'll explain where I was going with this idea in a minute. The base was made my husband & is just 2 pieces of plywood, rabbited together then primed with gesso.
 Some texture paste through a brick stencil & some brick red acrylic paint starts off the background.

 The comes the magic! Using stencils by StencilGirlPoducts I created a graffiti background...gorgeous!
Stencils used:
 Text and Texture Explore Stencil
 Timeless Stencil
 Past Present Future Stencil
 Inside Out Stencil
 Website: www.stencilgirlproducts.com Blog: www.stencilgirltalk.com

 I added a cardboard semi-circle & painted it & did some faux rusting drips as well. Then I added 2 more cardboard pillar to the scene & the roof. I love how the cardboard & graffiti show the fleeting nature of today's art as opposed to the timelessness of Ancient art specifically marble statues, which is what the idea behind what this piece portrays.
 So here she is "Venus of the Modern World" in daylight...
 OH Wait...I forgot to mention...I added light to the pedestal so it would shine up through the resin! Clever right?

 A few close-ups showing her lit-up...

I truly enjoyed this project with AmazingCastingProducts as well as working with the awesome stencils by StencilGirlProducts.
