3D WOW! Melt-It Embellishments
This is my first time using WOW! Melt-It and I’m excited to explore this 3-dimensional medium more!
WOW! Melt-It is a clear super fine embossing powder extender. Melt-It heats and melts faster than any other embossing powder. Mix it with your favorite embossing powders, glitters, and Changers to create unique 3-dimensional embellishments.
Tools & Supplies For WOW! Melt-Its
There are a few tools and supplies you need to create WOW! Melt-It embellishments.
- WOW! Melt-It powder
- WOW! Dual Speed Heat Tool – or another heat tool
- WOW! Foil Melt-It Case
- Tonic Nuvo Craft Spoon – or another small metal spoon
- Silicone mold
- Craft spatula – heat resistant spatula is advised
Silicone Candy Molds
Silicone molds are fabulous for this WOW! Melt-It technique. I used a silicone candy mold I picked up from Amazon. There are loads of options and I linked a couple below.
My finished WOW! 3D Melt-It card embellishments are about the thickness of the popped up sentiments. So, if you’re planning on using your 3D Melt-It embellishments on your papercraft be mindful of how deep the molds are.
How To Mix WOW! Melt-It
The possibilities are truly endless for the color and texture of your 3D WOW! Melt-It embellishments. Especially with the addition of WOW! Changers. Here are the formulas I used today.
For each mixture 1 scoop = the round scoop on the Tonic Nuvo Craft spoon. That is less than an eighth of a teaspoon.
Melt-It Purple Letters
- 2 scoops Melt-It
- 2 scoops Primary Purple Orchid
- 1 scoop Changers Glisten
Melt-It Green Letters
- 2 scoops Melt-It
- 2 scoops Primary Chartreuse
- 1 scoop Changers Sheen
Melt-It Glitter Hearts
- 6 scoops Melt-It
- 3 scoops Eco-Sparkles Anemone
- 1 scoop Primary Purple Orchid
After examining the results, I felt I could have reduced the amount of colored embossing powder and Eco-Sparkles in these mixtures. The embellishments were pretty dark, especially the hearts. So feel free to play around with your mixtures for desired results.
WOW! Melt-It Tips
This was my first time using WOW! Melt-It, I’ll share some tips from my experience.
- Plastic spatulas can melt. Use a metal or heat resistant spatula.
- Use tweezers or clothespin to hold the foil case, it gets hot.
- Crimp the WOW! Foil Melt-It Case to create a pouring spout.
- Mix well and shake all the powder to the bottom near the pouring spout before melting.
- Continue to apply heat while pouring to keep the mixture flowing.
- If the mixture hardens in the mold before you flatten it with a spatula, apply gentle heat.
- If your embellishments are disfigured, put them back into the Foil Melt-It Case, melt again, and remold.
- Have fun!
