Mod Melts for Mod Podge!  DIY your own embellishments!

Steve and I are thrilled to share with you one of our new products for Mod Podge.  Mod Melts!

We have many wonderful new craft items that are coming to retailers this spring and one product we are so proud of is our new line of Mod Melts and Molds.

With our new sea glass and milk glass Mod Melt Sticks and Molds you can now make your own scrapbooking, mixed media and jewelry making embellishments.

You can customize Mod Melts with a variety of finishes!  You can use FolkArt acrylic paints, shimmer mists, alcohol inks, glitter, nail polish, metallic paints, pearl paint and even embossing powders.

Available Mid-May 2013 at Michaels USA and Canada!

 How They WORK!


1. Select a Mod Melt Mold. 
(We have four different molds available.)






2. Select a Mod Melt Stick. 

We have two styles available that were specially formulated for creating durable embellishments.  Sea Glass is the clear stick and this creates a beach glass look.  Milk Glass is the white stick and it creates a look of vintage milk glass.  Cooled Mod Melts can be altered with a variety of finishes.  You can use FolkArt acrylic paints, shimmer mists, alcohol inks, glitter, nail polish, metallic paints, pearl paint and even embossing powders on either stick.


 3. Heat the Mod Melt stick in a HIGH temp hot glue gun.  
(we like to use a long nozzle hot glue gun)

Squeeze the HOT Mod Melt into the mold of your choice. Begin in the center and work your way around the edges. 


 4. Allow the Mod Melt to cool.  About 3 min.


5. Pop out of the mold.

The Mod Melt will easily pop out of the mold and it will be ready for embellishing.  (Milk Glass Mod Melt is featured in the photo)

6. Embellish your Mod Melt with a variety of finishes!  

You can use FolkArt acrylic paints, shimmer mists, alcohol inks, glitter, nail polish, metallic paints, pearl paint and even embossing powders.  Attach to a project with appropriate glue for your project. You can use Mod Melt, hot glue, gem glue or tacky glue.


Types of Finishes (This is the addicting part!)

  16. Will you be coming out with other colors of sea glass? Maybe red, blue, and green?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Saw all the new stuff at CHA and can hardly wait to have some of my own!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Whoa! Super cool! I'm going to need some :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like this idea, but I was thinking that it is too bad that the sticks do not come in colors. I like the sea glass look but then if you paint them then that effect is gone. Wish we could add some coloring while the stick is hot and it would cool a color. I will get both sticks. I had this idea of getting the frame mold and getting the white sticks. Once they are cool put some paint on and rub off - like antiquing them.

  20. You guys don't know how long I have hoped for something like this! It is a crafter's dream. Anyone can do it! These things will look awesome on all kinds of art too! Scrapbooking, altered art, jewelry, just to name a few!! Great job! I am so happy for you!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This looks like the best new product I've seen in a long time! I make cards and would love to make my own embellishments instead of buying the insanely expensive resin embellishments from scrapbook companies. When will I see Mod Melts show up in Michaels?

  22. I really, really, really hope we are going to be able to buy them over here, UK, and really really soon!!! These are fab, I love making my own embellishments but don't want to use resin, which from what i've seen is (a) really expensive, (b) fiddly and (c) smell. I've health issues so keep away from things that are too fiddly but these look great!!! am keeping my fingers crossed we get to see these in the uk soon - thank you so much for the inspiration Karen x

    Ooh WOW!!!! This is such a brilliant idea. Can't wait to get my hands on these.
    Presumably if the moulds are silicon, we can use UTEE in them and have the embellishments any shade we want??

    This is awesome!

  48. I've just seen this at Michael's and I am in love with the product. I'd bought some clay to make some flowers, but will return those and get these! Looks so easy and I love the molds!

  49. Yes - I saw these on your web site ! And I have seen them at Michael's. But I didn't have a coupon to purchase. Would love to try it out!

  50. Exactly what glue gun are you using? I have a cheap little one from Michaels and it is so hard to use. I really want to get a good glue gun but having a hard time finding a HIGH temp one that can accept the smaller diameter sticks.

    1. Hi Julia,

      I just over a fill a little bit and then trim with a detail scissor, nail file or my finger nail.

      Thanks!

  51. Do you have any pointers on how to fill the small areas in some of the designs? I am having trouble with this part. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Everyone keeps blogging about these! I want them in my life as soon as. When will they cross the seas to the UK?

    ReplyDelete
  53. My daughter bought a mold and a set of the melt sticks and has had nothing but problems. What size of glue gun do you need to use to make these work. She has tried two that we have and neither worked. Does it have to be one that hasn't been used for glue? Hope you can help as she is anxious to try these after seeing your video of them. Thanks

    1. Hello Karen,

      The gun must be high temp and you should let it heat for a good 10 min. Some people have had trouble with the cheaper guns or the promotional guns because they are not true high temp guns. Surebonder or Adtech are both options that work. Just make sure they are high temp.

  54. I can only find the flower mold. I wanted all of them, I went to 3 different Michaels stores. :-(

    Hey ...
    I hope you are well! I have several questions if anyone has time. 1. Do they cool to a hard flexible? Or a hard inflexible? 2. Is there a difference between the melts and standard colored glue stick? If the final product is hard flexible wouldn't glue be suitable for molds as well? And finally, which high temp glue gun would you recommend for this mini sticks? Thank you!!
