Paper Casting with the Vets

 
We had such fun in the VETS paper casting class taught in June! They were amazed at the many items that can be used to cast paper! Just a few are: candy molds, polymer clay molds, the backs of plates or bowels, metal jewelry findings, rubber stamps. Being Veterans and Vets’ spouses they fell in love with the wonderful military paper casting/polymer clay stamps from Rycraft! Several projects have already been posted this month using those Rycraft paper casting stamps. I wanted you to see a few of the castings using some other Rycraft paper casting stamps and a variety of other items. What fun it will be to create projects this fall using some of these castings!
