Glam It Up - Melt Pot

This technique is far easier if you do have a melt pot, and I know there are lots of you out there that have one and never use it.
Start with some Clear Amazing Glaze or UTEE in your melt pot, once this has melted you can then add a regular embossing powder of your choice, or more than one. For this project we chose JudiKins Cabernet Twinkle embossing powder.

We used our heart mould and placed a head pin in the mould before pouring in the molten liquid.
Alternatively you can use an eye pin and place the eye out the bottom of the heart so that you can hang beads.
Once you've filled the mould then leave to cool, it only takes a few minutes.

When you turn out your piece this is what it looks like, you will notice that the back of the piece is glossy while the front has a matt finish.

This is one we made with purple and white.
