Melt Pot Playtime

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

As you all know I went to my friend Kath's on Wednesday and we were putting our Melt Pot to good use. Tonight I would like to share with you all what I made.  It was a fun day and reminded me how much I love using this.

This first picture shows how I used the melt pot with my Spellbinder D-Lites Dies, the vase and the padlock, the frame is a Martha Stewart mold.  I have done a you tube about using the melt pot and spellbinder dies if you want to watch click here to the link.

These flowers and butterflies are Martha Stewart Molds, I have added seed beads to the centres of the larger flowers.

To finish off I dipped some of the flowers I had made into the melt pot, not quite happy with these but wanted to show you.  I then made 5 stick pins to use in my cards and then threaded beads onto florist wire as I have a few ideas on how I want to use these.

Thank you for visiting and if you have any questions please leave a comment and I will answer as soon as I can.

Love and Hugs

I'm not steady enough to handle a melt pot, or have the space to use it safely, but I do have some of those Martha Stewart molds that I use with her clay. The shapes do look good in the amber coloured UTEE though. And your stick pins look nice as well.

These are gorgeous Linda! I've been on the fence about whether or not to get a melting pot and all that goes with it, for a while now. Not sure I have the room or the need. But I really like the way your stuff turned out, and the fact that it could all be used as embellishments! I may have to rethink this! Thanks for the inspiration!

Off to watch the corresponding video now!
