Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Melting Pot Madness with UTEE

I belong to Suze Weinberg's Yahoo Group and everyone has been chatting lately about using their melting pots - so I just had to get mine out and play! The result was a state of melting pot madness - I couldn't stop! I like to make original jewelry to wear at CHA - these are two of the sets I created for the Winter show in Anaheim. If you aren't familiar with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) it's a great product for all kinds of melt art - it can be used in the melting pot, or with an embossing heat tool for some uses. Suze's website, newsletter and blog are full of fantastic ideas on using UTEE in your artwork. - http://www.schmoozewithsuze.com


The purple & turqouise set is a 'technique' I call "twisted blown blob beads" - very technical term, I know...... the pendent and earrings have UTEE also - behind glass facings with mirrored edges.

The dragonfly set was made with Ranger Mold & Pour - I made the dragonfly mold and the bead molds (thanks to Becky Chabot for tips on how to make bead molds!). Bronze UTEE and Verdigris embossing powder were used.

Now I'm off to melt into madness again.....
