|Debbi Simon's pendant from Resin Foundry|
We are really resin-mad over here. On our last post on 'what we were creating with resin,' Aisha Formanski made this mold that ended up paired with a stamped blank as a simple necklace.
We told you at the end of that post, we would pull that mold out again and try some cold casting when Resin Foundry launched.

Second, using the molding compound to mold a metal object is a great way to reproduce multiples to use in your designs that look like metal. The key is so cool, and now it can be incorporated into different designs for a variation on a theme.
I followed Debbi's clear instructions, presented in her class, and had the handout as backup. The Beaducation team gathered around as the mold was poured. It looked cool even when it was still liquid.
Twelve hours later...Voila!

It was a fun project and we think the results are spectacular. Let us know if you try it out. We'd love to see what you have made.
