Prima Marketing Pipeline Mould Video

Welcome back and Nancy, here. Father's Day is around the corner and there is still plenty of time to  to create a card like this one.

 I am getting so excited working with moulds lately.  I use an epoxy resin which is easy to use and comes out of the Prima Marketing moulds so well.  The epoxy resin set comes in two bottles and I mix two tablespoons of each in a cut and stir for two minutes and then pour in the moulds and set for about 12 hours depending on the depth of the mould.  I bend the moulds and the casting pops almost out.  I gently pull the casting out of the mould.  I cover each casting with a gesso which I used in the video the Prima Marketing Clear Gesso.  I let dry and then brush or sponge on the Prima Marketing metallic waxes.  Note, wear gloves with this along with covering the table with plastic garbage bags or something you can throw away since the resin gets all over the place.  Also, I used a clay knife to get the resin back in the casting in the mould as much as possible.  When it dries, there will be a little left over resin around the casting which will be removed with you fingers, therefore, less resin around the casting can be prevented with using a clay knife after pouring to get as much resin that is on top back into the casting.  Also, pour slowly but I used my clay knife and scrap it in the cup and let it dripped into the casting so that the resin don't over flow.  In a few months of working with these moulds, I will probably have a better technique in pouring the resin in these moulds.  

I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix gears dies for some of the gears.

After the gesso dries, I covered all of the pipeline casting with the The Prima Marketing Re-Design Decor Wax Brass and then brushed a little Prima Marketing Firebird was on the pipes.

The video explains the techniques that I used with both the Prima Marketing Rusty Pipeline and Prima Marketing Nocturnal Element moulds.  I will be doing another blog next week using the Prima Marketing Nocturnal Element mould which you will definitely want for numerous projects since the star, face and moon coordinates well with many cards and projects.

I had an ole Tim Holtz embossing folder that I ran through my machine with black paper.  I used a sponge as well as a crafting makeup brush which is similar to Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes to adhere the Prima Marketing The Prima Marketing Re-Design Decor Wax Brass  and Prima Marketing Firebird wax on the paper.  I accidentally left one brush dry with the wax and thought it was a throw away.  To my surprise, I used warm water and soap and the wax and glue washed out.

I used the Beacon 3-n-1 Advanced glue to adhere the pipes to the card and a hot glue gun to adhere the one metal gears to the card.  I typed out the sentiment and printed it out on cream paper and then covered it with Tim Holtz Distress Collage Medium Vintage but possible the Distress Vintage Photo ink could also be applied to get the same results.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
