Easy Mold Making for Resin or Clay
Do you know how easy mold making is? Eileen duplicated a 3/4" diameter metal pendant of a frog on a lily pad after losing one from a 3-piece set of jewelry. Can you tell which of the 3 is the copy?
I posted the next two sections of the free SAL. There's still plenty of time to get started!
Double Diamond Delight - Nine and Ten
I know the holidays are a hectic time and for me the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas always flies by before I know it. So, I decided to go ahead and post the next two diamonds for the SAL. Technically these are both for December, so there won't be another new chart until the first of January. That will give everyone time to finish these diamonds or even to catch up if you are just getting started.
Anyway, the images on the left show my normal SAL project and the ones on the right are my stand-alone projects. I stitched the SAL with DMC on glass blue Monaco fabric. The orange and blue diamond is stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Midnight (240) and Fragrant Cloves (7026). I love stitching with these threads!
The vibrant diamond is stitched with threads from Dragonfly Lotus Designs that were in a sample pack that I ordered a long while back and just got around to using. They were also nice to stitch with and I love the bright colors.
