UTEE FUN

As i haven't posted for a while i though i would share some pieces i made about a month ago.
Experimentation #1
Having brought a Melt Pot some time last year i think!!! {being one of those I NEED items} and then promptly filling it on the shelf marked things to get round to... LOL, i really thought that it was time i had a proper go with it, it had been sat so patiently waiting to be played with for all those months after all!
A friend kindly sent me the Suze Weinberg Melt Art DVD which kicked my arse into gear to have a play, and here are the results.
I had alot of fun with this and am sure with a bit more practice, get alot better, but I'm happy with what i managed on my first try. I actually had the idea to try the paper UTEE beads but the wire kinda took over and i forgot all about the paper, maybe next time, anyway i have rambled enough... hope you like my efforts.. and for anyone who has a lonely melt pot like mine was... be brave, get it out, dust it off and have a play.. you'll be glad you did.

I added micro beads, mini charms and tiny watch parts into moulds then pored the UTEE in to create the square pieces and the other shapes are just wire and patients lol, i also finished a couple with foil tape round the edges.
