DCC Blog Hop With Amazing Casting Products Day Of The Dead Planner Band

Welcome to the DCC Blog Hop With Amazing Casting Products!

Today I have made a fun Day Of The Dead Planner Band using Amazing Mod Putty and Amazing Clear Cast products from Alumilite. I love that I was able to create a high end crystal looking Sugar Skull of my choice using an old key-chain to make the mold. Here is how I made it...


Amazing Mold Putty
Amazing Clear Cast
Sugar Skull key chain
Clear nail polish
Elastic band
Iridescent glitter


Take equal parts of the Mold Putty and knead until combined completely.

Place item you want to mold into the putty and let dry for 15 minutes.

Remove item from the dry mold. Mix equal parts of the Amazing Clear Cast per included directions. 

Pour Clear Cast into mold add large iridescent glitter to the top. Let set overnight (18-24 hours). Remove item from mold.

Coat with clear nail polish or more varnish if needed to remove any cloudy residue on piece from the mold.

Add clear sequins to the eyes. Glue sugar skull to flower embellishment with hot glue gun.

Attach embellishments to the elastic band with a zip tie. Add to your favorite planner :)

That's it, how cute did this planner band turn out!?! I love that I was able to make a crystal looking version of the original rubber key chain my friend gave me. I love how it looks with the white silk flower.
