N0927 - Steampunk Chronicles - Designer: Jess Italia Lincoln

by VJMco January 21, 2020

Inspired by our January 2014 "Steampunk Chronicles" Theme.

Create a beautiful Melt Art collage in a bezel or using the frame of an old pocket watch as seen here! Patina and relief a variety of natural brass & artisan pewter charms & embellishments. Rivet them together to create your layered look. Place the open back frame or bezel onto a non-stick project craft sheet into a heated Ranger Melting Pot. Pour a small amount of clear UTEE into the opening and allow to melt. Use chain nose pliers to set your riveted focal over melted UTEE. Continue to pour UTEE over focal allowing it to melt, repeat until piece is completely covered. Turn Melting Pot off and allow to cool. Peel from project craft sheet, use flush cutters, metal file or dark gray side of reliefing block to smooth any over pour along edges.

For a similar effect using embossing powders & UTEE watch our, Vintaj Natural Brass: Melt Art Bezel technique video.
