Project Instructions

Step 1 Create the Mod Melts flowers and frames by heating a Mod Melts stick in a high-temp hot glue gun. Squeeze into the mold of your choice. Allow the melt to cool for 7 minutes. Remove the melt from the mold and finish using the tips below. Make as many flowers and frames as desired.

Step 2 Finish the melts with FolkArt® paints. To create a colored pearl look, mix a small amount of Pearl White with Baby Pink or Jamaican Sea. For a metallic look, use the Inca Gold or Sequin Black straight from the bottle. For a white pearl look, use Pearl White straight from the bottle.

Step 3 If desired, add highlights with a dab of a contrasting color to the Mod Melts. Allow paint color(s) to dry.

Step 4 Once dry, top-coat all designs with an Extreme Glitter Hologram.

Step 5 Using E-6000® glue, attach the Mod Melts ornaments to the purse. Overlap and layer the melts to add interest. Allow to dry.

Step 6 Glue gems and pearls to the centers of the Mod Melts for extra interest.


Go bold with neon colors or go for the gold with metallic paints.
