Mold and Cast OR Blue Baby Bindi Bangles!

My friend Simone ( and (@spazzgirl on twitter) truly wonders why I'm obsessed with baby doll heads.  She seems to be more obsessed with the fact that I'm obsessed with them than I am actually obsessed with them. Does that make sense?  It's early!  Truth is I am TEAM BABY HEAD all the way. I like to work with things that have a soul, a life, expression.  I like faces and shapes that represent living things. It's my "thing" you could say.  If you're not team baby head, that's fine.  You can use this technique to make molds of anything!  Check out the Smooth-cast 300.  You will LOVE this stuff!  Also check out the mold making putty from Ranger.  It makes a reusable rubber mold in 10 minutes!  Finally, you must get some of these Lumiere Metallic Paints. They are just beautiful.
