Glittering Key Chains!
Making key chains using silicone molds is great for the experienced crafter or the crafter looking to get more practice using epoxy. Using silicone molds to gain the experience of mixing, pouring, and manipulating epoxy is a great way to not only understand how to use it but it will also allow confidence building with this amazing but sometimes temperamental medium.
Another thing I love about silicon key chains is that the sky is the limit with creativity and personalization. I created one key chain to match the watermelon tumbler I created and the other one to appear as if the wine tumbler key chain is more than half full of wine!
