So exciting that my Melt pot arrived today. I couldn't wait to get going with this but it was late evening before I got to it :-( I managed to make a few pieces and no burns so far, guess watching Hels Sheridan and her advice worked as I tested them with a stick not my fingers...lol. I will be glad when the final part of my order arrives as it has the craft mat and Texture Treads in
I just need to find a UK shop that has some UTEE left as I can't get any anywhere :-( guess this technique has taken over this week and the shops have had a bumper sell out of their stock. Did manage to find a store with project pans though so I can use my Beeswax, another item that has been around since the year dot waiting for a project.
I just found out you can use the Melt Pot to set clay and my supply of Friendly Plastic, ideas HERE more of my impulse buys!
|First attempt - grapes, I love this mould and it came out so well. I am amazed at the detail, just need to sand the edges to get a cleaner finish and maybe add some mica powder|
I love the fact that it stays inside the frame and doesn't seep out of the edges, how clever is that!! Very well behaved for a liquid :-)
|The leftover mix poured onto a text stamp and cut out to make another necklace. Dusted with green mica powder and put on a suede thong|
Hope you like my first attempts and no fingers were harmed in the process :-) and I am getting to use stuff I have had for ages but never use.
