Have you seen the new Mod Melts and Molds by Mod Podge yet? This stuff is fantastic! As one who works with resin and polymer clay, I am in love with the ease of use, the detail of the pieces you can create and the speed of the process. Today I will show you how to quickly create a beautiful daisy bracelet. You will be seeing several more pieces in the near future made during my afternoon of creating with Mod Melts.
Mod Melt Mold
Mod Melt Sticks (Sea Glass used here)
Metal Filigree flower
Metal Chain and Toggle Clasp
Acrylic paint white, yellow and green
Matte Mod Podge
Small Paint brush
Paint sponge daubber
High Temp Hot glue gun
Heat the Mod Melt stick in your HIGH temp hot glue gun and squeeze into the larger daisy on the flower mold. Work from the center out, making sure to not overfill.
Let cool for about 5 minutes.
The pieces easily pop out of the flexible mold when you bend it. This is so freaking cool. Have you ever used resin in a flexible mold? Hours upon hours of waiting. No more.
Now you just paint your daisy. Mod Melts can be painted with acrylics, alcohol inks, embossing powders and more. See Cathie Filian’s great photo examples of different ways to color the embellishments. I show you FolkArt and Martha Stewart acrylic paint in this tutorial. I also tried alcohol inks and Vintaj patina. So awesome!
I painted the middle of the daisy with a toothpick.
Here are the three pieces I sandwiched for the focal point of the bracelet. I sealed them with 2 coats of Mod Podge Matte finish, painted on with small, soft brush.
I used E6000 to attach the pieces. Let dry for at least 30 minutes before handling.
To make the bracelet, I opened chain links and attached them directly to the metal filigree flower using jewelry pliers.
Using pliers and a jump ring, I added toggle clasp to the ends for closure.
