Prepping for ally Pali with the melt pot

The melt pot bubbles away, and I dip this and that to see what happens! As I am demoing the melt pot at the weekend, I wanted quick flowers - so went for my favourite wax paper (it's a new fav - check it out on my web site).

The flowers are cut from rough circles, scrunched and popped together on a metal brad. I added a little of the gilding wax to the top of the flower, then dipped into the molten UTEE. The brads are handy, as they are easy to pick the flower out of the UTEE with. They cool quickly, and are then attached to my layers of graphic 45 paper. Notice the little card sentiment "moments", even this has been dipped to give it a wonderful glazed finish!

Gorgeous flowers...loving my Melt Pot at the moment and want to UTEE or Beeswax everything. Sorry I won't be at Ally Pally on Sunday, got to leave Saturday after the show as we're off working on a cruise the next day. See you in September. Give my love to Michelle Mogford-Jackson when you next see her. Pam x
