These cards didn't make it into the recent newsletter, so I am posting here until next week. These cards will be in the Artful Journey, with Patti, on Thursday, June 10,. This class is $15 and runs from 11-2 pm (Bring your lunch.) Patti has used a great layering technique with "inchies."
The winner of the set of Tim Holtz embossing plates is #6, randomly chosen, so that is Catherine, who wrote in the comment area, "Is this similar to the clay you mold and then bake to harden. I have done that in the past to make miniature seals." Thanks for reading and responding, Catherine. Please come in and choose your prize.
Also, here is the answer to your question...This is not at all like the molded clay. This "Mold-n-Pour" product from Ranger is a 2-part substance ...you mix equal parts of the white and the purple together, until there are no more striations, then you push your piece (that you want to make the mold out of) down into this mixture...let it sit for about seven minutes, until a fingernail will no longer leave an impression...pull out the original item, and the mold is ready to go. It can be used for UTEE, which you heat to melting and pour into the mold. It can be used for food, but if you do this you must reserve that particular mold always just for food. If anyone would like to see a demo we are glad to show this at the store.
I am using this Memorial Day to clean my art room..really clean it, though, not just rearrange everything. (which is what my family has been watching me do for years) What I did first was to move every bag/box that was all over the floor into another room. Then I sorted out what was left into what I truly used and what I would sell/give/throw away...so now there is a space in the art room equal to 12 boxes full of stuff, and I am slowly moving all the stuff from the other room back in. I will sort it and determine what goes/stays after it is all back in here, as my family wants the living room back!...but I am feeling much better, lighter, and I am beginning to have my supplies where I want them. ...and to think, this only took 9 years (the length of time we have lived in this house.) Honestly, I couldn't use all this stuff if I retired tomorrow and lived to be one hundred years old...fortunately, my family does not read this blog..I know!...do you believe it?? Looks like I will have to package up lots of my personal stash for the Thanksgiving sale...So, tell me how you are doing with your storage issues...do you have a favorite storage piece?...or how do you keep from amassing too much--or is that just a ridiculous question?
