DIY Embossed Bow Tie Necklace

I was so excited when Rizzi at Thermomorph asked me to do a review about this amazing moldable plastic. Thermomorph is made out of polymorph that you can use in many ways you can think of. You can fix things, make things and even sculpt thing s with it. Yes the sky is the limit!

Today I would love to share with you what I did with Thermomorph. I made few things out of it… just having too much! It is very easy to work with this moldable plastic. First, boil a kettle of water. I used our electric kettle, just quicker and easier. I put the boiled water in a bowl and added a spoonful in it. I watched the plastic beads turning into clear plastic. I forgot to time it but it was not that long.

I used the spoon to get it out of the hot water and put on the table. It will be sticky, so don’t worry.  It gets cool quickly. While it was touchable, I started to work with it.

I used my daughter’s play dough plastic roller to flatten the Thermomorph on the CTMH Dot embossing folder, as thin as possible. Then I added Bowtiful Die Cut from Waffle Flower Crafts and secured it with a tape. Then I run it through my die cut machine, Evolution Advanced couple times.

It didn’t cut all the way, so I used my craft knife to cut the bow tie. Then I colored it using CTMH Cotton Candy Pigment Ink using small round sponge. I let it drying a little bit then I prayed it with Plaid Clear Acrylic coating. And when it completely dried, I added some clear glitter all over the bow. Oh I also poke 2 holes where I wanted to put the claps for the necklace chain, first I used the craft knife carefully and then used the biggest needle I had to poke the holes all the way through.

To finish the necklace, I added the cute button using E6000 glue and then claps for the chain.

And here’s my cute happy model… She has to have that necklace every single day! That smile on her face that makes my day! Both of my daughters are inspirations for me to create every single day! She even said, “Mama, I want to make something with your cool thing.” 😀

And some extra pretty things I made. These flowers I used Modpodge molder that I got from Walmart the other day and colored them using Plaid acrylic paints (I stole my daughter’s paint set! LOL!). Once they all completely dried, I added some clear glitter glue to them. I used E6000 glue to add them on the clips, ring base and earring.

When  I was done with my project, I still have some left. One of the cool thing from Thermomorph is that the left over can be used again later. I store it back in the jar, close the lid and they are there until I want to use it again.

I want to thank Rizzi for sending me this product for free. I totally recommend you this for any craft projects, it is great for making embellishments for your scrapbooking and cards, or easy to use with any embossing folders or stencils for your mix-media projects. Like I said before, sky is the limit! You can get this product at Amazon.
