Hey all. I am doing some exploring this weekend while waiting for the last of the watercolor collage fat book pages to come in before binding. I also needed to make some art to include in my goodies bags for the teachers of the month in the art explorations group. I spent a large part of yesterday afternoon playing with UTEE and my melting pot. I was inspired by the Suze Weinberg class I took on Thursday night. I mixed and swirled a variety of UTEE colors in my melting pot. I did some faux soldering with memory glass. I did a lot of putting the stamp in the UTEE and letting it harden. LOVED THAT! That was my favorite thing to do. I used pigment ink on the stamp before I put the stamp into the UTEE. The results were fabulous. I took some of the images with interesting patterns and cut those up into smaller pieces for collage and to put them on my memory glass pieces. I used the excess and make little faces using the rubber molds. I did have to refill my melting pot with UTEE a few times, but it melted quickly and I did other things while waiting for it. the hardest thing was to not stir until all the UTEE melted.

I've seen the UTEE, and have thought about working with it to make "things" to sew onto quilts. Is it difficult to work with? Can I learn the technique from a book (I think Suze has a book)?
