Wendy Vecchi has two great Melt Art techniques to share with you. In the 1st half of her blog post, she shows you how to create a textured UTEE embellishment by making the piece you see below, which features a textured UTEE flower!
Next, Wendy details how to create distress UTEE art parts. As you can see in this close up, the thin layer of distress paint, covered with UTEE makes the flowers look faded & very vintage. For more information on these techniques and to enter Wendy’s giveaway, head on over to this blog post!
Melt Art Mania isn’t just for blogs… our factory has caught it too! Our team has been working hard all morning filling up UTEE jars! Take a look:
Now as exciting as UTEE fresh off the line is, we know you stopped by today to see another project. You’re in luck… Linda Ledbetter has this amazing project over on her blog!
What we really LOVE about this project is that Linda used FIVE different techniques to make this piece. Be sure to read her blog post to see how she made each component. We know you’ll learn a new trick or two along the way!
For Day 6 of Melt Art Mania, Linda Cain has prepared not 1, but 2 projects for you! If you’ve been following along the past few day, but still don’t have a Melting Pot yet, the techniques in Linda’s blog post can be executed with UTEE, Clear Embossing Ink, and a Heat It Craft Tool as well as with the Melting Pot. It’s a perfect way to try out UTEE in your next project before you get a chance to go out and buy your first Melting Pot!
First up, she repurposed an eyeglass case to create this beautiful Gears and Buckles box.
Then, she used a similar technique on Vintaj Natural Brass Blank Guitar Picks to create these wonderful earring.
Finally, don’t forget that she is also having a GIVEAWAY! Be sure to head on over to this blog post to read all about how to make these amazing projects and enter the contest!
Today we are super excited to have our first designer share their Melt Art project. The wonderful and talented Kaz Hall has a great post over on her blog that you just must read! Here is a little peek at what she has in store for you:
After a few days of Melt Art projects, hopefully you’re curious about implementing some of these techniques into your own projects. If you’re looking for a particular color, you’ll be pleased to find out that you can create a plethora of color combinations by mixing various colors of UTEE and Heat It Inks.
Day 3 and Ranger’s Patti Behan has another great project! This Metallic UTEE Dare to Dream Card features Platinum, Gold and Bronze UTEE to create texturized diecuts. The great part about this project is that you can use this technique with any combination of your favorite dies and stamps to create the perfect embellishment for your next project!
Head over to the project page now to learn how and then try this technique out for youself!
After creating your canvas with a variety of Studio products, a bit of Beeswax is added to the entire project and then buffed to create a nice sheen! Check out the project page here for more information about this technique!
