Melting Pot

I was awestruck when I saw the effect that a melting pot and some UTEE can have on a paper flower--it makes them look juicy! I've finally pulled my pot out to play!

If you're unfamiliar with Ranger's Melting Pot, they have a video here. There are several other videos available that show different techniques and possibilities with it.

I pulled out a couple of card bases that I created quite some time ago but wasn't inspired to finish. I rolled one of each size of MFT's Royal Roses and then dipped them into melted UTEE. I experimented with tinsel glitter, microbeads, and gold embossing powder.

There's a bit of a trick to it which I'm sure I will master with practice.  ;)

Thanks for peeking!
