More Embellishments

The use of a hot glue gun produced these embellishments, flexible silicone moulds filled with the hot glue, when cool paint with black acrylic paint.  Inka Gold to highlight.  Small dots laid onto a craft sheet, while hot sprinkled with fine glitter or leave to cool and brush with Perfect Pearls.

The next project we used a small jam jar.  Material attached to polystyrene dome, lace around the edges, and decorate stick pins to insert in the cushion.


Finally with the Melt Pot at the ready, we dipped paper flower petals into hot UTEE to layer while still molten.  Also not shown here we also dipped skeleton leaves.

In the afternoon seed beads, pins, findings and tools were available to complete the items. This was a great end of year workshop and I am now preparing for our first one of 2012 in February. Until next time....


  1. Thank you for posting last year's workshop projects - they are all fantastic. Really looking forward to joining you at the February workshop.


  2. Lovely embellies made Sheelagh! When I saw your title of the post I thought you wanted more bellies - alas mine has shrunk a little since we met!! LOL!!

  3. Wow! I have seen the dots before - but never thought of putting the glue in silicone moulds! What a great idea! Thank you for showing us! :)
