      This tutorial is not an all encompassing How to use molding paste tutorial. There are thousands of ways to use this product and this is only 1 of them.

      One of the easiest projects I've been really getting into lately is making 3D designs using my templates. I know it is hard to see from this picture, but you'll have to trust me, there is some depth in that design. This project is so super easy that I just had to share it with you.

        Here are the supplies you are going to need:

        * Bowl, Pan or anything that you can use for glitter
        * Stencil – mine is from Layers of Color
        * Light Molding Paste – mine is by Golden
        * Palette Knife – you could use an old credit card, or a sturdy piece of chipboard if you don't have a knife
        * Glitter
        * Item that you want to embellish. Mine is a Christmas tree for a page I'm working on.
        * Non-Stick Craft Mat
        * Masking Tape

          Step 1
          Put your card stock on your non-stick craft mat and position your template until the design is where you want it. Use masking tape to secure the template to your craft mat.

            Step 2

            Using your palette knife, very carefully spread the molding paste over your stencil. Something really important to note: when you are working with a stencil, especially one with an intricate design, the template may have a tendency to lift up making it so that your paste goes undeeath the template. For this reason I will first put a thicker coat over the project and not apply a lot of pressure. Think of putting frosting on your cake. Then I will carefully and slowly begin to wipe off the paste until there is an even layer over the template.

            Now very gently hold your stencil and remove your tape. You don't want to jiggle the template or it will smear your design. Now begin to lift off your template. Your project may stick to the bottom so very slowly peel away your project. Now put it in your work tray and sprinkle with glitter. Do not press the glitter in place. Lift your project and tap off the excess glitter.

              Set your project aside to dry and harden. The paste is pretty thin so it shouldn't take more that 20 minutes. It helps to make your project first and then while it is drying you begin work on the rest of your page.

              This is such a versatile project. You can mix in some color to your molding paste prior to using it, you can use Perfect Pearls or Pearl Ex, ink it, mist it….the list goes on. Use your imagination but most of all open up a jar and just play.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
