Melt pot virgin!
I bought my Ranger melting pot quite some time ago, but have been a bit nervouus of using it up until now. Today was the day however! I melted some clear ultra thick embossing crystals, and added a pinch of coloured crystals, and poured the (very hot!) molten liquid into some Martha Stewart silicone moulds. I wish they were better photos, as the flowers are so pretty - translucent with a lovely shine. Of course, I now want more crystals (which are basically ground plastic) to try out different effects and techniques! I'll probably use these for card embellishments, but if I change my mind they can be re-melted in the pot, and made into something else :)
