Make your own Embellishments with WOW Melt-it

Hi everyone,
Sorry it has been so long between posts.  Life has been getting in the way lately.  I wanted to share with you a tutorial on a new product in the USA.  It is called WOW Melt-It.  It is an awesome product.  It allows you to use a little embossing powder mixed with the Melt-It powder to make you own embellishments or even Jewelry.


Melt-It Embossing Powder Tutorial

Melt-It is a new unique product by WOW Embossing.  It allows you to use your embossing powders in a melting pot.  Pour the melted embossing powders in molds and create wonderful embellishments, or jewelry.

Pre heat your melting pot to the UTEE setting. 


Use a 2:1 ratio.  Two scoops of Melt-It powder to one scoop of embossing powder.   You can also mix embossing colors to make a new color.  You will want to put these scoops of powder in a dish and stir it up.  The mixture needs to be well mixed before melting for best results.

Pour the mixture in the melting pot and let melt completely.  I found it easiest to use the melting pot liners to melt the mixture on in the pot.  This allows you to lift the liner out to pour the mixture in the molds.  Stir while melting to continue to mix colors evenly. 
Pour the molten powder into molds of your choice.  I used the WOW Embossing molds.  These molds are also food safe, so they could be used for cake decorating or candy making.

Let it sit for a few minutes and pop out your embellishments.  One of the nice things about this technique is, if the embellishment didn’t turn out the way you like you can re-melt it.  Just toss the embellishment back into the melting pot and let it re-melt.  You can do this as many times as you like.




You now have your embellishments ready for you project.  I found there is a little bit of a learning curve to this.  I re-melted my results a lot, before I had one I liked.
