Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Golden Leopard Bracelet



This resin bracelet project is also featured this week in my Cindi's Creative Solutions article at When Creativity Knocks.

Materials: 

Alumilite® White Casting Resin
Alumilite® Resin Dye - Black 
Plaid® Mod Podge® Mold Molds - Patterns 
DecoArt® Metallic Lustre™ - Gold Rush 
Judikins Diamond Glaze™ 
Goldtone chain, jump rings, closure 
Jewelry pliers 
Heavy duty small hole punch 

Instructions:

Mix very small amount of Alumilite® White Casting Resin according to manufacturer instructions.  Add a few drops of black Alumilite® Resin Dye and mix thorougly. 



Pour into square leopard mold.  Pour any excess resin into other shapes.  

Cure according to manufacturer instructions, removing square just before resin is totally cured (it will still be slightly flexible at this point).  Gently bend and prop between resin bottles and allow to cure the rest of the way until fully set. 



Repeat to make 3 squares. 

Apply a very light amount of Burnished Brass Metallic Lustre to highlight pattern on surface of each piece. 

Apply thin coat of Judikins Diamond Glaze™ to surface to seal lustre.  Let dry. 

Use heavy duty small hole punch to punch 2 holes in each side of each piece.  


Add jump rings and small sections of goldtone chain between each square.  (Length of chain will depend upon desired finish length of bracelet.)   


Add closure.
