I surely surely would......like it hot that is! I'm contemplating putting the heating on again! On to warmer thoughts, Hels has challenged us to use the melt pot this week and so I had to make one of the faux porcelain flower roses and have put it on top of a little box to hold a gift for someone special.
I crackle painted a little box with red and gold acrylic paint and some distressing paste I had, I know that you can buy paint ready crackled which is easier but I wanted to use this up. I deliberately did it roughly as I wanted it to look old. Then I made the rose by stamping out the rose onto some patterned paper that I then covered in aged mahogany ink and then I dipped each layer in hot UTE before assembling. I tried to make some drips as if it had just rained (I looked for inspiration outside the window - ha ha) and then stuck it on top of the box with some spare UTE. I lined the box with a piece of gold patterned paper and now it is ready to hold some tissue paper and some jewellery I am trying to make! I am imagining everyone playing with their melt pots this week, what a great challenge, I shall off to enjoy everyone's masterpieces now! Have a lovely week. x
