Making Hot Glue Embellishments.


These are some of the hot glue embellishments that I have made
to use for my scrap-booking and mixed media projects.

Mannequin Doll Template.
Click on small images.
I printed the template on paper.
I worked on a glass sheet that I had.
Because I am working on a glass sheet I can turn it around.
I taped the template onto the glass sheet with painter’s tape.
I taped wax paper over the template.

Hint: I keep my glue gun in an empty tape dispenser.

This glue gun and sticks are available from Dollar-stores, but if you are planning to use a glue-gun more often, I suggest getting a better one.
I bought anArtMinds™ Mini Glue Gun, Stylish Pattern, which works very well for gluing, but melts the glue too much for fine work. 

Heat gun for at least 5 minutes. Have glue sticks ready.
When the glue gun was hot enough, I traced the design with Hot glue on top of the wax paper.
I find it very relaxing to trace the lines.
Wait for the glue to harden.
Hint: Melt away the glue gun strings with a hairdryer.
Soak the clock in water to remove it from the wax-paper and clean the back with Rubbing alcohol, to remove the last bits of paper. Use tweezers to remove stubborn pieces of paper from inside the holes.
I covered the glue with layers of acid-free paint.
Please note, do not use Hot glue for photos, the heat and acidity can harm your photos.

HINT
: I use flexible plastic cutting board sheets for working with hot glue. I spray them with cooking spray and drop hot glue on them for making faux wax seals, pebble accents, etc. A few hours later I just peel them off.
