Melt Pot Playtime

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today Kath aka Mucky Paws, came to mine and we had a play with my melting pot and an assortment of moulds, mica, UTTE, and Fran-tage.  Boy did we have fun, we were bouncing ideas of each other.  My new Spellbinders came which were POTW last week on C & C and I said why don't we see if the UTTE etc will work with the dies.  WOW ladies did they ever!  Below is a photograph taken of some of the things we played with.  They aren't perfect but as this was just trial and error we were both pleased with the results.


We used the following Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die D-Lites
Wrought Iron, Gilded Gate 2, Filigree Vase, Ornamental Tags 3 and the Love Locket.
What do you thing?  On the vase and locket we rubbed Metallic Gilding Wax in Cast Bronze from Creative Expressions.  I will be playing a lot more with these D-Lites and my melting pot.
The Wrought Iron and Gilded gate where cut out first with scrap card and then dipped into the melting pot.


These ones are moulds that Kath brought with her except for the Cabochon which is from my stash.  On the heart Kath reheated this just a little then used the filigree pattern off the Spellbinder Vase and made an impression.

I would love the hear if you have used other accessories with your Melt Pot.

Thank you Kath for making today such a fun day and looking forward to our next play day.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
