Ranger Melt Art

Do you have a melting pot? When was the last time you used it?
There are SO MANY fun ways to use the Melting Pot for UTEE, Shrink Film, Clay and more!

Here are a few of the things we did in class yesterday:

Shrink Film dipped in clear UTEE to shrink it and coat it.  Let dry.  Add Alcohol Inks on the back.  Apply images (printed on copy paper) to the back.  We put them on a small canvas.  They could easily be made into other embellishments or jewelry.

Some of the last pieces - using the colored to black UTEE:
Molded pieces that we made the molds and then turned the pieces into a ring, chipboard shapes dragged in UTEE, stamped on (for images only, no ink) and highlighted with perfect pearls. And a pendant made by pouring UTEE into a frame placed on to a rubber stamp and highlighted with perfect pearls.
 There were several other projects in between the clear and the black UTEE - more pictures later on those!
