Last week Val came over for a 'craft day' to do seascape windows and try our hand at orgonite, which is an interesting item made with metal, quartz and resin, and which is supposed to bring balanced energy. You can read about it HERE.
I prepped a bunch of frame a few days beforehand by cleaning the glass and gluing it to the frames. I went a bit over the edge on this small one. I wanted to try it with just glass blobbies. I like how it came out.
This one is my fave of the ones I did. The resin came out so crystal clear! I used Czech glass beads and unintentionally created a Cape Cod looking design.
This is Val's and it's freakin GORGEOUS. My pic doesn't do it justice at all.
This is Val's orgonite and it's so incredibly badass I could die. She used metal skulls as well as metal bits and quartz crystal.
The sides and bottom of the silicone mold weren't shiny so the resin set cloudy but the skulls peering out of the fog is wicked cool.
This is my piece just using metal bits (from the models I made recently), quartz & moonstone.
Since I had the beads out....
I actually LOVE the way this looks.
I made skull pendants for Val & Casi.
I did a hodge podge collage on this frame.
Then I did 2 large frames too.
This is my fave of the two and I wish I'd noticed it was in a heart design cause I would've used more stuff in the top center to define the 2 sides better.
So now I'm on the hunt for great frames because this craft is pretty addictive! Marsha, Annette & I are hoping to get together soon to make them too!
