Playtime with the Melt Pot

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Friends

Well what a fantastic lovely sunny day it has been here in Warrington.  The washing was dry by noon.  Hubby has spent the day in the garden and I even joined him for an hour this afternoon soaking up the rays of the sun.  I came back in after an hour rather pink!

I have had a play finally with my melt pot this afternoon and some air dry clay which I pressed into some rose moulds.

These are the roses from the mould, I am quite pleased with how they have come out.  I have rubbed gilding wax onto them to show the petals.

These are made using silicone moulds the ones on the right are made with Cosmic Shimmer Bronze with a touch of Tropic Pearl and the ones on the right are a mixture of Blue Raspberry, Lapis Sapphire and Tropic Pearl

Now you all know how I love to use my melt pot with my Spellbinder D-Lites well here is the Heart and the Locket I have used gilding wax to highlight the intricate details.  Every time I try this the results get better and better.  The square is a cookie cutter which I have embedded a key and lock into whilst still very warm.

Apart from the two bezel these are all made by pouring a mixture of different UTEE colours into Cookie cutters.  The heart I poured clear UTEE into the cutter and added a clock and key with background paper laid down first. 

I have made a you tube video which I have made a page for at the top of my blog if you wish to see how I achieved the embellishments with my Spellbinder D-Lites

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
