Leafing week: pendants

There was a bit of a mix up as Isa'sArt worked with the fragments instead of the leafing/gilding flakes. But the project is beautiful and would work with leafing too, so I post it anyway. 

Those Mica fragments can be glued to your projects, heated, embossed or even, as Isa did here, used with UTEE (or andy embossing powders) to make pendants

Here's how she did it.
1- She used a melting pot to heat the plain metal pendant
2- She then sprinkled some embossing powder(s) on the hot metal
3- She added the fragments over the hot (melted) powder (You could use gilding flakes too) which "sink" in the hot embossed piece. 
4/ Take it off the melting pot and let it cool for a while

And you get this... isn't it gorgeous?


So have fun with your melting pot/powders and flakes and we shall see you tomorrow
Don't forget to come and show us if you try this technique ;)

Pictures of Michelle's gorgeous canvas (paint effect week - March 28th) have been added. 
Thank you Michelle for taking the time to take those pictures for us :)


  1. Wow Izzy this looks fab stuff, I dont have a melting pot and I have spent up for now but have added them to my wish list, I love it with the glitter thank you for sharing Hugs Elaine

  2. Beautiful pieces. I have two pots of these (bought because they looked pretty!) but have never used them. Thanks for the inspiration. x

  3. Wow this is a gorgeous effect.

  4. Gorgeous project as ever from Isa. Must admit to having looked at these fragments but never bought or used any . . . . yet!

  5. Des idées géniales et un résultat somptueux.Bravo!!

  6. Stunning, I only bought some of these at Craft Barn a few weeks ago and havent used them yet so what a fabulous idea to use them on a pendant.....

  7. I have been curious about those fragments and how to use them so this post is most welcome ! The inclusion technique is a brilliant idea.
