All of the new Mod Melts and Mod Molds are avalible at Michaels Craft Stores starting in June, I know the store near me is aready carrying them!
We used travel pamphlets with little maps, because I thought that would be something a fairy would find and frame. But if you are making these for a dollhouse, using family pictures would be cool too!
Start by loading the glue gun with the Mod Melts sticks. Fill the frame Mod Mold and let cool about 10 minutes. (really I think I popped them out in less time but if you are making these with the kids, wait until they are completely cool.)
Pop the frames out of the molds and paint them with a base color, I used FolkArt paints by Plaid. A light blue, white and black. Let that coat dry.
Once that is dry, use a dry brush and gently brush the gold or silver gilding (read gold or silver paint) on the high spots of the frame. Then let that coat dry.
Next cut the art or picture you want to frame and glue that to the back of the frame. Let the glue dry.
I used a jewelry pendant gel and filled the front side of the frame to create the look of glass. That has to dry for 24 hrs.
Once that is complete, attach hangers to the back of the frames. For one I used beading wire and the other I used a jump ring. For the table setters, I use tiny wooden flower pots, turned upside down and glued to the back. These create a very sturdy base to hold the pictures up.
