Seahorse Resin Bottle with Donna

Hi all! It’s Donna here the blog today and I have a project for you that I hope you like.. Couture Creations have brought out some new products and a gorgeous paper collection called Tina Ollett’s Seaside Girl! For this project I have concentrated on the wonderful Clear Casting Resin.

So here is my setup to try and see how it all works.. I used an assortment of moulds I had in my stash just to try which works the best with the resin and my favourites was the pink rubber ones as it came out clean and easy as.

I love this maple syrup and have it on lots of things especially bacon yumm.. I took the label of the bottle and cut little bits of squares but you could use what ever you like and I adhered them down with the Quick Adhesive glue.

I waited until the glue set then did two coats over the whole bottle with a mixed media base drying between coats. I wrapped cord around the bottle adhering it with the quick drying glue.

The bottle and moulds ready to go.. Using several of the wonderful alcohol inks Pour over the bottle in sections. I started with the Goldfish alcohol ink first and to be honest loved it straight away. After all the inks were used this is what it turned out like.. I love it!

I wanted the Gold Pearl Alcohol ink to shine on the main focus, in this case the seahorse on the frame. I used the Liquid Scrap Dots to hold up the seahorse and it worked a treat. The fish was suppose to be in shades of blue and green but the gold ran and I liked it so much I left it as is. You can see with this laying down, the depth of the resin shapes. A bonus for me was the alcohol inks left over on pieces of Alcohol Ink Papers..
