Melt Pot Mysteries...

Hello friends
Yesterday's meltpot classes went brilliantly, all the mystery and techniques surrounding
melt pots were expertly explained by Jennie.
For those of you who haven't taken yours out of the box excuses now! 
The morning class in full swing...

 And the gallery of finished Floral Fusion frames - all different and beautiful.
Everyone had the same papers but chose to use different sides so the end results
were unique to each designer. 
 UTEE poured into silicone moulds to create the lovely button/flower shapes.

  The 'porcelain' flowers are Carnation Creations cut from card stock and 
dipped in UTEE in the melt pot.
Some gorgeous butterflies...
 And an appearance of Sprigs here too!
It was busy productive classes but I'm pleased to say we found time for cake!
I hope to show you how we created the Spellbinders flowers in the melt pot soon...
watch this space.
I also attended the class and hope to finish my frame soon...I was on tea duty!

Thank you to all those that came along.

Take care friends - back tomorrow.
(Kittens VERY lively!)

Thank you Christine for hosting. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching my favourite techniques! Hope to see your finished one soon ?! Xx

Diane said...

I was often tempted with one, but I do have a craft dragon with the heat plate, so I COULD simulate this technique with that. Very interested to know about using it in conjunction with the spellbinders flowers dies??????.

Good morning Christine
Wow all the artwork looks fantastic. Haven't gone down the meltpot route yet - not sure if it is my cup of tea but the work you all did yesterday is amazing especially the butterflies.
Enjoy your day

Hi Christine, glad you had a great class yesterday - fab makes! I have had mine for 2 years, never even considered leaving it in the box and use it all the's on my desk at easy reach and I have a tub of 'makes' ready to use...great for buttons! Great with beeswax too! Hugs Carole Z X

Hello Christine
I have watched Hels with her pot on C/c.... she makes it look easy.... but I can't quite manage to push myself to buy one.
It seems that these ladies enjoyed it Christine.... I too will enjoy seeing yours!
Take care
Love Marg
