I frequent the local dollar store and on a recent visit I saw badly painted excuse for a nativity.
From Tchotchke to Functional
The original was more cone shaped and I knew the mold would give me a flat back. This was perfect because my plan was the glue two casts back to back!
After casting with Amazing Casting Resin, I painted both pieces with black acrylic paint and then went over them with silver Rub n Buff.
I then glued the lower half of the two pieces back to back with E6000 glue and placed a rubber band around the bottom to secure overnight.
Once it was dry you can slide a photo or ,in this case, a card into the slot.
Now it looks nothing like the original piece!
What do you see when you look at tchotchkes?
Good luck and
