"Porcelain" Flowers!!!

I finally got a Melting Pot!!!  Why did I not have one of these before?  This is the coolest thing I have seen and used in a long time!  Michael's had a 50% off coupon, I only paid $20 for the pot!  I just have the one color of enamel so far.  I didn't get the zpatula and the tweezers yet, but will.  I used a bamboo skewer and a pair of regular tweezers for now, and they worked ok.  I started to play with it just last night...I have seen a multitude of videos and tutorials on making flowers, so I decided to give it a go.

 Here is a couple views of my experiment.  Please excuse the cruddy camera...I really need to get a better one, but this gives you the gist of the results.

I used a variety of punches and my Sizzix rolled flower die to make the little roses.  I think they all turned out super cool.  I can't wait to really do some more experimentation with different colors of enamel.  Now I just want to dip everything in the stuff!

Thanks for looking and stay crafty, my friends!
