So I had to try my hand at resin and dominoes! Everyone else is doing it and they look awesome, so I HAD too!!

The resin is dyed with food coloring  Shocked and I use a candy mold.
Then for the domino I used plaster crack filler stuff to fill the holes then scanned some images from one of my books and glued it on then resined over the top.

Creepy! But in a good way. I think I recognize that photo. Would it be in an old ghost stories book? I know that is really vauge, but I read the book as a child so all I remember is getting it from the library.  Roll Eyes

hahaha i instantly recognized this one! its from those scary stories to tell in the dark books. they had a black border on the cover and were white with like a weird picture in the middle. theres one with like a house/barn on it, and another with a creepy ass clown.

Nice Job!

i have that mold!
and, man. I'm totally a horror chick until the day I die, but the art in those scary stories to tell in the dark books SO freaked me out when I was in, like, first grade. There was a school field trip to the library once, just to have someone read them to us...
[there's a cover of one with a a hill that's also a grinning clown's head, i think? oh man. of course, I'd love that on a t shirt or something now.]
Anyway, bitching necklace. Wear it happily, proudly, etc. Also, since we have the exact same mold--I've destroyed it twice to get my resin stars out of it after they harden. I know it's a candy mold, but, still, what am I doing wrong? I've tried water as a mold release and I'm pretty sure I messed that up somehow.

anyway, you rule, in case that wasn't clear.

thanks guys!! and it IS from the scary stories to tell in the dark book! And SquidPrincess, I have no clue how to get em out safely, I had to cut around them with an exact knife and then wiggle em out. One of them came right out and the other one I had to cut away. Im not too sad about having to cut it up since it only cost me a buck!!

Awesome. I've made a few horror ones myself now. My friends love them, but I'm not sure if I want to share.  Cheesy
