Resin~ate the Love by making this adorable "Dads and Boys, Have the Same Toys" Father's Day Picture frame.
Start with a Dollar Store frame and toy truck.
Because I am such a lazy crafter I decided to try to mold both sides of the truck at once.
Came out pretty good, if I do say so myself!
Using Amazing Crafting Products Deep Red Alumidust I brushed the inside of the mold.
Just about everything I cast I start by mixing in some black Alumilite Dye.
I love how they turned out! I added some silver Rub 'n Buff for extra roughness!
I need something else that kind of represented the truck. My first attempt was to make tread marks but the wheels on this truck were smooth, so that was a bust. My next idea was to use my hubby's truck key, but that had a giant fob on it that looked rather blah... so I settled on just an ole generic key.
Not bad! The resin key looks almost as good as the real one! I actually walked out of my craft room and asked hubby if this could turn a lock. He doubted it, but I a not so sure!

Pieces being glued in place. I couldn't help to add my bestie's beautiful baby to the frame. And since we are in Louisiana, the ever present fleur de lis was added too.
Now, go Craft Your Own Way...
( i'm always thinking... you can go your own way...go your own way..... you can call it another lonely day....)
