Brilliant 3-D Butterflies!

We're having weirdly warm weather here in SoCal, perfect for launching our new video on how to make 3-D Butterflies!

Use the Doming Technique and our Clear Photo Film to make pieces that look like they're about to take flight!    These beauties can be turned into necklaces, earrings, pins, magnets or ornaments, and other eye-catching gifts.

 

 

Use our Amazing Tape to hold your shapes in place without bothering the surface:

 

 

And just feast your eyes on these creations by our Amazing Makers:

This inspiring piece was created by artist Lynn Dodge as a memorial for those killed in the Montecito mud slide, made with debris from that tragic event.  It's so evocative.  75% of the sale will go to a local charity.  See below for a note from this fine artist, I think she's an angel.

"Hi Fran,

This is a piece of art I created using Little Windows Brilliant Resin.  It is called “Transformation” and was made with the debris from the Montecito mud slide in Montecito, Ca. In memory of the 23 lives that were lost that day.  

I found a laminated USA wall map in the dirt, all muddy and torn up.  I took it home, cleaned it up and cut out the butterflies.  I knew I wanted to make them look like they are flying free and that’s where your wonderful resin came into play.
I cut out each butterfly and then applied your Little Window resin per the directions to each Butterfly to give them dimension.  After about 12 hours I was able to bend them and tape into position.  Afterwards I glued them to clear plexiglass rods to give them the appearance of flying free.  The metal base was also debris that I found.
Thanks for a wonderful product, that was not only easy to use but created the perfect finish to each Butterfly!
I highly recommend your products and will be using them in future art projects!
Sincerely,
Lynn Dodge"

Altered Dominoes

Awesome altered artist Denise Moore created these beautiful pieces by layering graphics, found accents (beads, watch parts, etc.), and Little Windows resin over dominoes!

 She sells these and other fab jewelry on Etsy, and has posted how-to instructions for us on her blog.  Thanks for the inspiration Denise!

Travel Memory Magnets

Here’s a great idea for transforming memories of your favorite trips into awesome reminders that can live around you, not just on your computer!

MEMORY MAGNETS: I’ve used the Doming Technique and added some jump rings to connect our awesome pix to some simple graphics created in MicroSoft Word or Photoshop.  You can even cut pieces from postcards, brochures, maps….

TRAVEL COLLAGE: And here I use the Casting Technique to layer bits and pieces to create this wonderful collage.  Bottom layer is actually cut from a map and becomes a little translucent when you put it in the resin.  Second layer is a stamp, 3rd layer is a metal charm (I cut off the ring at the top).  Be sure to allow at least 4-5 hours between layers, more if your item is heavy.
