Ann Butler Designs and Cool2Cast Blog Hop


Happy to be part of the Ann Butler Designs and  Tiffany Windsor's Cool2Cast Blog Hop.


Two leading ladies decided to organize a hop to showcase their product lines and the Ann Butler designers are happy to pair up with Cool2Cast.  Be sure to check out Cool2cast and view the video's.

You should have arrived at my blog here from Ann Butler's blog.

I am featuring Ann Butler's Earth Safe Paints and a Cool2Cast powder cast medium.  A girl can never have enough jewelry, so I decided to have some fun with a few jewelry pieces.

Lets take a look at those supplies.
Here you can see Ann's Earth Safe Paints.  I choose the Iridescent purple and pink paints.  
I drilled tiny holes into the jewelry pieces large enough to thread through wires.  Painted each piece 2 coats of Earth Safe Paints.
Once the paint was dried, I stamped onto the rectangle cast with Ann Butler's 1" Stripes.Dots.Hearts and the 1" Doily Picnic set of  Stamps by Unity Stamp Co.
I used Clearsnap Surfacez paints to ensure that the stamping would adhere to the painted surface. Added a bit of rhinestones and so happy how well this pendant turned out.

Next up is a lovely heart shaped cast.  I braided my necklace piece and added my pendant to make a striking vogue pendant.  


                   Take a close look at that shimmer in the Earth Safe Paints by Ann Butler Designs.

The Cool2Cast product provides smooth detailed casts that make great projects for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you for joining us for our blog hop.

Enjoy the rest of your day with lots of inspiration from my fellow team members.  Now hop on over to see what  BethWatson has created.

Here is the blog hop order for this event.
