Melt Pot Creation

I had a play with my Melt Pot for the first time yesterday and found I really loved it. I thought I would try something fairly basic to start with so I found a clay cutter and poured the melted utee into it to see how it would look. I made the colour by mixing clear and silver utee and adding a few drops of blue and yellow melt art dye with a bit of Melt Art Flex. The swirly pattern came about completely by accident as I found that if you poured the melted utee in a swirl action it seemed to hold the pattern once the utee was set.I managed to add a hole by using a crop o dile and the piece did not shatter as the flex stops this from happening. I just added a couple of jump rings, some cord and clasp attachments and there you have a necklace! I also had ago at pouring the melted utee into some sugar paste moulds I had lying around and was quite pleased with the outcome. Will show these another day.
Bye for now, be back soon.......
