As many of my creative friends know, one of my very favorite crafting mediums is Cool2Cast. I love it so much, I even put my name on it! With this casting medium, you can create pieces for embellishments, jewelry, home decor and more. Cool2Cast is very economical so you can make pieces one-at-a-time or by the dozen. If you have worked with silicone molds, candy molds, polymer clay molds and resin molds, you are going to love how you can use Cool2Cast to create cool new shapes. You can give the pieces added detail by embedding into them or embossing them.
I am SO excited to announce that I have teamed up with the team at Bella Crafts Quarterly to produce a NEW Cool2Cast eBook (watch my video announcement!) which you can purchase on-line and download and view as a pdf or purchase it from MagCloud in print format. This ebook is BIG! I can’t believe how much we actually stuffed into this ebook. With over 100 pages, I had the opportunity to get into every step of the basics of Cool2Cast.
When I first started playing with Cool2Cast, I was immediately drawn to how awesome these pieces are to color with alcohol inks and they take stamping beautifully. Whether brushing, pouring or dipping into alcohol inks, you’ll be able to create some really unusual one-of-a-kind pieces.
Today is the official kick-off to a 10-day book review blog hop. I am so very honored and delighted that my fellow creative friends will be featuring their own Cool2Cast projects and/or reviewing this ebook. I encourage and invite you to check out these blogs to find out more about the creative possibilities of Cool2Cast! But wait…there’s more!
