- Pins from the Melting Pot -
By Zeborah Loray

Before you get started, here is a list of items you will need .
  • A computer print out of the images using waterproof ink (such as the Epson Dura Bright inks)
  • Gel Pens!

  • Ranger's Melting Pot (available from our site)

  • Heat gun (available from our site)

  • Clear OPALS embossing enamel (Franklin) (available from our site)

  • Long handled tweezers

  • Non Stick Craft sheet (available from our site)

  • Pin Backs (available from our site)

  • 1. Stamp images over entire sheet of Sheer Heaven or print out images using your computer.

  • 2. Cut out images.

  • 3. Color the images with gel pens.

  • 4. You can color the backs too- especially if you are going to turn the wings up a bit. ;)

  • 5. Holding the pin with the tweezers, dip into clear OPALS in the Melting Pot

  • 6. Give it at least three coats of clear OPALS

  • 7. You can turn the wings up slightly by bending it against the Embossing Sheet

  • 8. Attach your pin back!

Without the pin back they make great embellishments for other projects.

I have also scanned the finished pins and manipulated the images for use with other projects. I printed out the scarab pin on Lazertran and applied it to a paper mache box.
