I got fabric glue all over my sewing machine
needle and foot because I could not wait.
I woke up and thought 'cripes!
I got nothing for the Georgia boys for easter.'
The rabbit was easy but gooey.
Behind it is a bunny hat I made from an old t-shirt.
No, I am not a creative genius. I got it here
It couldn't be girly.
These are boys so I ixnayed any pink whatsoever.
And definitely no ribbons! So I fudged it a bit.
They kinda look like a cheap ripoff of muskateer ears.
oh well, I'll just fill it with candy. He will be so delirious
he won't even notice.
when I heard plain mabel was closin' shop
I decided to have a peek at what was left.
yet another craft I HAD TO conquer.
See the wispy stuff? that's wool roving.
See that knob with the sharp spikes?
You use that to jab at the roving to compact it down.
I got a bit of an arm workout cuz I was
jabbing like there was no tomorrow.
Hand/Eye coordination is a must for this one...
otherwise you might end up stabbing yourself,
and I think that would hurt, a lot.
This is my very first EVER resin cast.
It took 2 days to complete.
I bought this book by Sherri Haab "The Art of Resin Casting"
and then purchased the easy cast resin and a mold
from her website sherrihaab.com
I'm giving this book a thumbs up.
It's an easy read with tips that are truly helpful.
The 'Easy Cast' had no odor either (yay!)
the waiting was the only bummer
but I'm glad I did.
