Plaid has a fun new line of Mod Melts molds and colored sticks!  I showed you how to use Mod Melts in this post, and now I’m going to show you how I used the new products to make three dimensional cabochons with Mod Melts!

Make the embellishment as you normally would, by heating the stick in a low temp glue gun and filling the mold.

When the first shape has cooled, remove it from the mold.  Make a second shape, and immediately place the first cabochon on top of the second one. 

You can only make 3-D shapes with molds that are symmetrical.  There are many to work with in this particular mold!

I used the pink melt sticks to make these.


Trim off any excess from the edges as needed.


Decorate the embellishments with Drizzle Paint!
Here’s a sampling of the various embellishments I’ve made so far!  Some were made with collage clay, as explained in this tutorial.  Check back each day for more ideas on how to work with Mod Melts and Collage Clay!

I have a 2 year old Grandaughter that would be THRILLED with a pair of these. Tha
