Theme: Halloween/Fall
blog candy: three winners: Paperclay, Resin and AMP
 
So if you've been following along with the AMP and Paperclay Design Team Blog Hop - you're at the right place! My creation was inspired by "the hand" my very first paperclay project. I molded this hand from paperclay and decided to make a mold from it. So I did this by "hand" and the minute I was done my son says to me "why didn't you just use my hand in the mold?" Well, duh, that would have been too easy and not nearly as much fun. I did enjoy using the paperclay and look forward to making more projects with it. I've been REALLY INSPIRED by my team-mates paperclay creations.
this is my paperclay hand
I mixed equal parts of The Amazing Mold Putty and pressed my paperclay hand into the mold putty.
 
I then mixed equal parts of the 5 minute Casting Resin
with a drop of brown and yellow dye. I poured the resin into the mold and let it harden.
 
When this piece was harding, I removed it from the cast while the fingers were still a bit wet, I wanted it that way.
I cut fun fur and glued it to the fingers and hand.

 
I got out my distress ink and went all over the fur. OK this was fun, but left fur threads everywhere. But a little tape cleaned that right up!
 
The finished piece is now the making of my first childrens book - LOL!

 
This will make just a fun book to display at halloween. But my son was really taken with this hand. He now thinks I should make more hands modelled from his action figures of course!!
 
Head on over to the next blog for another exciting creaton!
 
Don't forget to "follow" this blog - I will return the favor!
 
Please enjoy the rest of the blog hop!

Nice that you sculpted a hand. The idea with the fur and inking it was genius. It all comes together with the colors you have used on everything on your book cover.

Love that you sculptured a hand vs. molding one. The idea with the fur adding it before the resign dries and dying it with inks is genius. Love all the colors on the front of your book.
