Last one....a little bit more dipping into the melt pot

And finally, dipping again.  This time I have used a solid shape, I have used one of my TwiddleBitz.  The pot was mainly clear UTEE, with some red Jewel Enamel in there as well.  Using tweezers, dip your shape into the pot, allow the excess to drip off.  If you want to add texture, simply stamp whilst your UTEE is still wet.  Great for changing all your embellishments.  Try paper flowers, metal embellishments, shrink plastic, skeleton leaves....experiment.

Again, when the UTEE cooled, I added a little gilding wax to one of the birds - look at the sheen.
