HOW to Make a Mod Melt Video:

Steps for making a Mod Melt…

1. Create the Mod Melt Flowers and frames by heating a Mod Melt stick in a high-temp hot glue gun. Squeeze the melt into the mold of your choice. Allow the melt to cool for 7 min. Remove the melt from the mold and finish with paint. Make as many flowers and frames as you wish.

2. To finish the Mod Melts, paint them with FolkArt paints. To create a colored pearl look, mix a small amount to Pearl White paint with Baby Pink or Jamaican Sea paint. For a metallic look, just use the Inca Gold or Sequin Black paint straight from the bottle. For a white pearl look use Pearl White straight from the bottle. To add highlights to the Mod Melts, add dap of a contrasting color to the Mod Melt. Allow to dry.

3. Once dry, top-coat all the Mod Melt designs with Extreme Glitter Hologram.

Decoden just got a whole lot easier with Mod Podge Collage Clay!

decoden clay whip mod podge collage mixed media cell phone case

Have you tried Decoden?  We were so smitten with this crafting technique from Japan and excited about the possibilities that we developed a clay for decoden.  The clay is called Collage Clay and it is a part of the Mod Podge family.  Decoden is the art of decorating anything with doodads and trinkets.  The more the merrier and over-the-top design is the name of the game when it comes to 3-d collage.  You can use Collage Clay with any of our Mod Melts or any trinkets, gems and buttons that you wish to use.  The clay is like traditional Decoden Whip in that it dries light and airy unlike silicone caulk.  The whip is available in pink and white!

??????????

Coming to Michaels Stores This June!

DIY Cell Phone Case Covers with Mod Podge, Mod Melts and Glitter

diy cell phone case with Mod Podge melts decoden

You can make a customized cell phone case with Mod Podge, Mod Melts and a little glitter!  I love using papers that are made for insta-scrapbooking because they are usually sized pretty good and they have sayings and prints.

mod podged cell phone case

Trim the paper to fit on top of the cell phone case.  You can either trim it to fall below the camera hole or you can trim a hole for the camera hole.  Just don’t cover the hole with paper or you can’t take any pics. 🙂

Coat the back of the paper with Mod Podge gloss.

add paper to cell phone case with Mod Podge

Apply the paper to the cell phone case and smooth any air bubbles with your fingers.  Let it dry for about 15 min.
