Melt Art - How to Use UTEE and the Melting Pot

How do you fancy being able to craft amazingly beautiful items AND have fantastic fun melting stuff at the same time? Sound good? Then you need to learn all about Melting Pot Art - and discover Ranger's wonderful Melt Art and UTEE products!

With these affordable and easy-to-use products, you can craft your own beautifully enameled and embossed jewelry, embellishments, fashion items, papercrafts, and even candles and soaps! In fact, you can even use it to melt chocolate and make your own candies!

Have fun making incredible designs that will make beautiful keepsakes or gifts. You can use this with papercrafting, rubber stamping, polymer clay, memory glass and lots more!

Introduction to the Melting Pot and UTEE

UTEE? What's that? I hear you cry! I was first introduced to this amazing crafting product about four years ago when I saw Tim Holtz and Suze Weinberg demonstrating it on QVC. I ordered some right away, along with the Melting Pot, and was not disappointed - I have made so many cool things using it all!

UTEE stands for Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. It has much larger grains than normal embossing powders, and it works by first heating to boiling point in the Melting Pot, during which time it melts so that you can dip, mix, pour and more, before drying and hardening to a gorgeous enamel finish.

You can read a full summary here of how to use UTEE.

The Melting Pot, meanwhile, is a non-stick coated pan that plugs in and heats up. It is designed to be safe to use and easy to pour, and you can melt all kinds of substances in it, including embossing powders, candle wax, chocolate, candy - even crayons and glue! While it is easy to clean, there are also project pans available to place inside the main pot, which is recommended if you want to use the pot for different materials - UTEE, beeswax and chocolate, for example. While this is not essential, I personally would always use a pan for edible melts, just in case any traces of crafting materials remained.

There are all kinds of ways to craft with a Ranger Melting Pot. I've produced everything from extra special embossed stamping to scrapbook embellishments, and even enameled a goblin mask and created the effect of dichroic glass!

Ranger Melt Art Melting Pot - Melt Art Melting Pot Review

The Ranger Melting Pot is your key ingredient to Melt Art! Use it to melt UTEE, candle wax, glue, chocolate, candy, soap, and much more. I have found this so easy to use, and am always amazed by the effects you can create with it! Not only that, but it heats up and melts the contents really fast, too!

I've used it to make embossed rubber stamp designs, fake dichroic glass, memory glass and sea glass keepsakes, jewelry, embellishments for scrapbooking and cards, enameled polymer clay and more.

In fact, if I could only keep one gadget in my craft room, this would be it - because it is SO diverse and SO much fun! I love mixing stuff together in it too, using UTEE and Ranger inks to create amazing swirled designs, marble and enameling. I just love it, and cannot recommend it highly enough!

What Can I Do with Melting Pot Art, then? - Watch this Video to Find Out!!

Suze Weinberg demonstrates just how quick and easy it is to make a beautiful piece of jewelry using Melt Art. If she can make this in a matter of minutes, just think what you could make sat at home with plenty of time on your hands!

7 Top Tips to Get Started with the Melting Pot - Simple Starter Project - Rubber Stamping into UTEE

  1. Plug in the Melting Pot, place it on a non-stick craft sheet and pre-heat it for about 5 minutes
  2. Pour in clear UTEE, put the lid on the pot and allow it to melt
  3. Once melted, you can add other UTEE colors or a heat-safe ink to dye the clear UTEE. Use Ranger To Dye For inks as these are safe for use in the melting pot - never use alcohol inks!

    Using the Melt Art spatula, you can either stir in one color and mix it to a straight color, or mix it a little bit to retain a marbled effect, or add in several colors and swirl them to create a multicolor marble.

  4. Once you are happy with the color and consistency, you can pour the UTEE out onto your non-stick craft sheet. Don't worry if there is more than you need, as the beauty of UTEE is that once is has gone hard, you can pop all your leftover pieces back into the melting pot another day and re-melt them!
  5. Place your stamp of choice onto the UTEE, gently press in and leave it. Allow it to set for about 20 minutes. If you've finished with the Melting Pot, be sure to turn it off and once cool enough, you can peel off any remaining UTEE. Store all your excess pieces in a container for future use.
  6. Once cool, you can pick it up and carefully prise the hardened UTEE off the stamp. Trim off the unwanted excess with sharp scissors or a craft knife, and you will be left with a superb embellishment for a card, scrapbook, journal or any number of other items.
  7. If you want to further embellish the piece, you can brush on paints or color with craft markers once the piece is completely cool.

I'm very much a visual learner when it comes to crafts, so videos like this are a godsend for me. Tim and Suze first got me hooked on this when they demoed it on QVC, so this guide to the basics of melting pot art is essential viewing!

Trust me, if you love crafting, and have a penchant for distressed looks. then you HAVE to own this DVD. I have watched it and watched it and watched it, and the tutorials are truly wonderful. Tim Holtz is sheer genius and in these projects he uses a wealth of different Ranger products, including the Melting Pot, Mold-N-Pour, UTEE, embossing powders, alcohol inks, mica powder, interference pearls and much more!

He shows you brilliant techniques, such as how to create the look of dichroic glass and achieve perfect grunge or distressed projects every time.

One Final Melt Art Project... - My Goblin Mask!

Copyright of the author
Copyright of the author

One of my favourite projects that involved UTEE was this goblin mask (which eventually turned into a green man plaque). Part of the reason I remember this one so fondly is because it was a total experiment, and the result was beyond what I had hoped for!

I dipped a polymer clay mask I had created into melted UTEE, which I had marbled with green and brown shades, and the effect as I dipped and layered and parts dried over other parts, was astounding. Realistic knots and gnarls appeared, making him look like he was part of a tree - hence why he ended up becoming more tree spirit than goblin!

You can see the step by step stages in the gallery below. All photos are copyright of myself, the author.
