Mod Melts and Collage Clay Tutorials!

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Blueprint Social and Plaid.  All Projects and opinions are 100% mine.

One of the best parts of my blogging job is getting to try out new crafting supplies!  And these new crafting supplies from Plaid are so FUN!  Plaid has 2 new products you are going to LOVE: Mod Podge Collage Clay and Mod Melts

Decoden is the new crafting craze that started in Japan 
and now is making it way through the USA! 

Decoden is the art of decorating anything with trinkets, and "the more the merrier" is the name of the game in designing an over the top look in this 3D collage technique. Use Collage Clay with Mod Melts, trinkets, buttons, rhinestones, and anything else you can think of!

First up is Mod Melts! Super easy to make little charms that can be used to embellish so many things!

Here is the How-to:
1. Supplies: Mod Melts, Mod Molds, Hot Glue Gun (optional: craft paints)
2. Heat up your glue gun and put one of the Mod Melts in it in place of a glue stick.
3. Use the glue gun to fill the molds with the mod melts.  Use an old gift card or plastic knife to scrap off the excess.
4. Wait 5 minutes and pop them out of the molds

You can just leave them plain or you can decorate them too!  You just need some craft paint and small brushes.
5. I painted all mine white as a primer.  It took a couple coats.
6. I used different colors to embellish the different charms.
Then you can glue them to all sorts of things to make the extra cute!

Next up Collage Clay:
The Collage Clay is lightweight whipped clay great to use for Decoden, 3D Collage, Assemblage Arts, 3D Stenciling and more. Available in two trend right colors, Vanilla White and Strawberry Pink

Here is the how-to:
1. Supplies: Collage Clay, Collage Drizzle Paint, trinkets to decorate with (Buttons, gems, charms etc), Tin box or some thing to embellish.
2. The Collage Clay comes with 3 tips to use. 
3. I used the wide tip to cover the tin box.
4. I used an old used up gift card to flatten out and spread the Collage Clay smooth.

5. I used the Star tip to make little stars around the edge
6. I used the drizzle paint to drizzle some color on.
7. I added my trinkets to embellish the box
8. Let dry for at least 1 day

I also made a frame using the star tip and some buttons!  
Collage Clay is not recommended for children ages 12 and under, and the product is not edible. Small parts are a choking hazard for children

Here is a video tutorial on how to use the Collage Clay:
