On my work table today is a product new to me. As I was wandering the aisles at the Creativation show, I stopped to talk to the folks at ComposiMold and they kindly sent me a sample of their unique ImPRESSive mold-making putty. It's unique because 1) you don't have to mix it like most mold-making putty and 2) it's re-usable!
I followed the instructions on the back of the product to heat the Impressive Putty. While it was cooling, I searched for some items to mold.
The first thing I tried was an old key. I pressed the key into the putty and put it into the freezer for 15 minutes.
Then, I popped out the key by flexing the mold.
I used Delight(TM) air dry modeling compound to fill the mold.
In all, I made three paper clay keys. They should be fun to add to a mixed media collage or a card later.
I added a little too much resin, so I had to clean up the key with a file.
Then, I created a simple lariat with leather lace. I wrapped the key with wire and beads and added it to the ends of the lace with a metal keyhole, beads and other assorted items..
Here's a photo of the ends of the lariat.

And, so, since it's a re-usable putty, I heated it up and kneaded it and made another mold. This time I used a stone donut.
I found this ImPRESSive Putty very easy to use and I look forward to using it more in my design work. You can find it at the ComposiMold website along with many more of their re-usable mold-making materials. You'll find a product for everything you want to mold - even food!
