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!
