Bezels with Utee


I was watching some Utee uploads on YouTube and came across this one by the lovely Carol Fox. Using lots of different metal embellishments in the bezel I covered them in melted Utee and then used the heat tool to get rid of the air bubbles. I like this one as the spinner still spins.


For this one I cut out a piece of coloured text paper and added a silver coloured charm. I pushed the charm into the melted Utee.


I added gold coloured mini dragonfly beads and sequins to this very small bezel and filled with Utee.


This is a 1" Ranger memory frame and therefore doesn't have a back.  I placed a charm and 3 beads inside and filled with Utee.  As you can see, it's pretty transparent.


And this is it on my craft surface, as you can see, the Utee looks more yellow.


And this one is exactly the same except I used a single butterfly charm. But I need to go back and reheat this as you can see the top right corner has a bubble in it.


And again on the craft surface.


And here are all 5 together. Sorry for the glare but I used my new daylight lamp as it was nearly dark by the time I was finished.

I think these are wonderful. Didn't know you could do that with UTEE. I just bought a jar and haven't used it as yet. Also watched Carol's tutorial on YouTube . Great stuff !

I will have to look up Carol's tute - you have done a brilliant job with these - my UTEE hasn't seen daylight for years - I really must get it to play again - this is such a brilliant project Sam

I'm taking a Christmas ornament class on Sunday with Carol and I think we are doing something similar. These are fab, Sam.

Completely wonderful, Sam - love the one with the spinning spinner, and they look so cool all lined up. Brilliant! I love Carol's work so will certainly check out the link - and just seen Deborah's comment about the class - envious!!
