How to use UTEE - Part 1

UTEE stands for Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. UTEE is a thicker version of regular embossing powder. The difference is, its granules are larger. There are a lot of uses for UTEE, one can make embellishments, embellish the scrapbook projects and much more. In this simple tutorial, I’ll share some simplest techniques to start with UTEE.



Materials Required:



Melt Art UTEE Clear and Golden, Any Rubber Stamp, Versamark Dazzle, Heat Tool, Wax Heater, Versafine onyx black or any other ink, Distress Inks, Various Chipboards Shapes,  Die Cuts(of your choice), Fine Curved Tip Tweezer and Flat Brush




Apply  Versafine onyx black ink or any other ink on rubber stamp and Stamp on die cut




Stamp Versamark on die cut. Sprinkle UTEE on it. Shake off any excess UTEE.




Hold the Die Cut with Tweezer, Use heat embossing tool to melt the UTEE. Sprinkle some more UTEE. Melt it again. Repeat this step until you want a desire result.

P.S.: While UTEE is hot DON’T Touch it, it can cause skin burns. Always use Tweezers to hold your object.



Make another die-cut repeating steps no. 1, 2, 3. Adhere the die-cuts.

P.S.: UTEE dry too fast. So while layering, Swipe the Versamark over the object, Sprinkle UTEE on it and Melt.




In this technique, choose any chipboard shape and distress with distress ink.



Put the Chipboard in a wax heater, where the UTEE is already melted. Use tweezers to lift the chipboard.

P.S.: Wax heater works as Indian Melting Pot. In a Wax Heater, UTEE tends to take time to Melt. Make sure UTEE is melted thoroughly



Stamp Versamark on chipboard, Pour UTEE on it and Shake off the Excess.



Melt it and quickly stamp your rubber stamp into the molten UTEE. You must work quickly or the UTEE will cool and harden.

P.S.: UTEE will not cause any harm to Rubber Stamp. Leave the Rubber Stamp in the heated UTEE until it has cool down. The edges can be cut through scissors. The Rubber stamp you may use can be inked or you may stamp with non-inked rubber stamp.


In the last, If you desire sprinkle some gold embossing powder using flat brush. Heat the chipboard for a few seconds.

UTEE can be use on various kinds of base to embellish your scrapbook projects. UTEE gives new dimensions to Mixed Media projects.


Here is the another technique to turn simple laser-cut into sparkling embellishment. Laser-Cut is from
Itsy Bitsy

 

Stamp Versamark, Brush Gold embossing Powder, heat it. Let it cool down. Again Swipe the Versamark over die-cut, Sprinkle UTEE, Melt it. Sprinkle more UTEE on it and Melt it again.

This is my creation using UTEE Embellishments, Hand-drawn Doodles, Flocked flower, Chalking and Distressing



I’ll share more techniques using different tools with UTEE in coming days.
