Melt Pot Art

Just thought I'd tell you what a great afternoon I had yesterday when, along with  Yvonne of Meggys Way, we attended a Hels Sheridan workshop on the Melt Pot at Crafty Corner in South Shields.
This is the canvas that I made, and apart from the base painting, all techniques involved were using the Melt Pot, using Beeswax and UTEE, and I can assure you lots of lovely mess and chatter was enjoyed by all, and Hels was a great tutor.  The only downside to the afternoon was that it all went over too quickly, but that seems to happen when you enjoy yourself so much and I don't think anyone wanted the afternoon to end.
It's such a shame that the Melt pot has been discontinued, and that was Hels last workshop teaching this great technique, I feel so lucky to have had this opportunity, which has given me more confidence to use mine.
Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it.

Wow, that's fabulous Avril, lucky you, I must admit I get a tad envious when I hear of workshops, we get nothing near us. I didn't know the melt pot had been discontinued,mine is still in its packaging,never had the courage to use it, what a wimp!

Wonder why they discontinued the melt pot????
