UTEE, Resin & Sculpey Clay Charms

Oct 30, 2012

I’ve had so much fun this past week exper­i­ment­ing with UTEE, Resin and Sculpey Clay. At the moment it’s a charm par­adise in my craft­room. The acorn charm is made from UTEE. I hunt­ed all over my back­yard for the per­fect­ly shaped acorn so I could make a mold of it. I found one and think this charm came out so cute. The top of the acorn is the actu­al acorn top I glit­tered and attached to the UTEE acorn. I cov­ered the entire acorn with a thin lay­er of resin. The bird charm is cre­at­ed out of Sculpey Clay, embossed with a Melt Art Tex­ture Tread, paint­ed and cov­ered with a thin lay­er of resin. The always be amaz­ing charm is cre­at­ed using Sculpey Clay, resin paper but­ter­flies, glass glit­ter and topped with a thick coat­ing of resin.

I’m lov­ing this big funky charm it’s filled with lots of Nunn Design pieces, pearls, but­tons and rhine­stones. I can­not wait for the resin to com­plete­ly cure so I can add vin­tage lace and pearl charms to the top. This piece will be an entire blog post once it is com­plet­ed. So far it has tak­en me 3 days to make it. The faux hand­blown glass charms are made using UTEE. I love how these are so per­fect­ly imper­fect. You will nev­er cre­ate the same bead twice. You can get them close but nev­er exact. Each charm bead ends up it’s own unique piece. I’ll be teach­ing a class at The Crafty Scrap­per in late Jan­u­ary show­ing you how to make all kinds of dif­fer­ent faux hand­blown glass charms.

I will be doing more cre­ative exper­i­ments today and will share soon.
