Making Nature Molds

Now that the warmer weather is enticing new growth on the Kansas prairie, I'm excited to be outside looking for new textures and grasses to use in my jewelry designs.  I've purchased my favorite molding compounds and am ready for whatever I may find to make a good mold.  I have found that some flowers and grasses do well for mold making because they are more rigid than those that are more delicate.  Also it depends on the molding compound I use.  My Silicone Puttydoes better than the Model Air Dry Modeling Clayin making molds of delicate objects.  For more information and a tutorial in how I make my molds click here.

How has the change in weather inspired you?
