1 high temp hot glue gun
Silicon mold. You can use a fondant silicon mold (The ones used to decorate cakes) A soap silicon mold, or resin silicon mold. The mold MUST be made of silicon for this method to work
High temp glue sticks
Wait for the glue gun to heat up fully (I let mine sit for around 3-5 minuets) Once fully heated fill each mold up all the way. If a little goes over the edges that is okay you can cut he extra away.
Wait for each piece to cool fully before removing from mold. Once they are fully cooled you can lay them out to be painted. First layer is a primer. The choice of primer is up to you, I picked white. This is an outside part of the job as it calls for spray paint. Place each piece face up and spray a layer of primer on. I ended up spraying about 4 layers. You can also paint the underside if you wish.
Once the primer is fully dried you are ready to paint the detail. Depending on what you are doing you can either use a colored can of spray paint or you can hand paint the pieces with acrylic paint. I’ve done both methods as I needed everything to be solid gold for my Seth cosplay while for my White Rabbit cosplay as I needed a mixture of colors on one piece. Finishing can be, leave as is or add a gloss of your choice.
Adding the pieces to your project is really easy, just turn the glue gun back on and wait for it to heat up once more. Add glue to the back of the cast piece before carefully placing it in the proper location.
You can make everything from buttons, clasps, gems, to pieces that look like armor.
DISCLAIMER!!! THIS METHOD USES A HIGH TEMP HOT GLUE GUN WHICH CAN CAUSE A SECOND TO EVEN A THIRD DEGREE BURN. BE CAREFUL WHEN USING THIS METHOD. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BURN YOURSELF, SOMEONE ELSE, OR ANYTHING FOR THAT MATTER.
I hope this was helpful and please I would love to see photos of what you’ve created ^__^
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red (13.00, Sephora) Perfect true red for any skin color. I don’t care if you are purple, you will look good in this lipstick. AND! AND! It stays on all effing day. I wore this sassy lil bitch throughout Thanksgiving Dinner when I forcefed myself mashed potatoes and freebased stuffing and this shit hung ON. I have gotten ASS drunk in this and my eyes look like 2 raccoon eyes and my lips look flawless. This thing is a miracle.
Mac Rebel (15.00, Macy’s) This is the sexiest. It smells like vanilla and looks like you’ve rubbed berries all over your mouth or just drank wine. Doesn’t dry your lips out and looks great on all skin tones: dark and olive skin with Rebel makes you look like you’re one of those Fall-Loving Girls who shops at Anthro and knits scarves and is just so chic. Lighter skin and you are bound to look like Lorde at a damn tea-party. All who wear look like they are rolling around in leaves and celebrating the fall time in really nice boots.
Mac Cyber (15.00, Macy’s) CONGRATS you have been crowned the New Supreme. This is the kind of lipstick that takes some confidence to put on and leave the house with, but once you do it is so worth it. It makes you look and feel like you eat men’s hearts, have ravens for pets, and maybe you are the devil. I want to descend from chandeliers in this lipstick. I wear this when I want to feel like a sex demon.
Too-Faced Beaty Balm Lip Injections in Never Enough Nude (21.00, Sephora) Do you remember when you were 14 and first stepped into Sephora and kept rubbing that lip venom all over yourself and your friends and it hurt ? That world is BACK baby! This time in a super moisturizing lip balm that actually has a really nice color to it and doesn’t look glossy or overly botoxy. I chose nude, which is a universal color if you’re not very olive or darker. If you are darker-toned, I would suggest the berry or pink color they sell. Still! The point is this lip balm makes your lips freak out and explode and tingle without drying them out. Seriously. You will look like Meghan Fox after she goes to the…dr. Your lips EXPLODE! I felt very French and also maybe very Vegas. Just don’t put this anywhere else on your body or you’ll look like you maybe have leprosy. And super sexy lips! Note: It burns.
