I purchased this product quite a few years ago when I was playing with fabric and textiles.  I tried using it very briefly with polymer clay a couple of years ago and decided to pull it out just recently when I was playing with mylar and a range of other products.

Now it seems the website listed on the package is not related to the name Suze Weinberg.  I checked for Suze Weinberg online and she has some very old youtube videos using the Foil Melts (plus others).

Anyway, long story short, these little melts work beautifully.  I only tried two variations but the results were great.

This is what I did:

*  I created a base bead, applied my foil melts directly to the raw clay and cured.  When the bead was cured and slightly cooled I coated with 3 or 4 layers of kato liquid clay and cured with a heat gun each time.

*  I created a base bead and cured it.  I applied a coat of kato liquid clay, stuck my foil melts onto the wet liquid and then cured with a heat gun.  I then applied two additional coats of liquid clay.

The surface of the bead looks “crinkled” but they are silky smooth.  The second last pic in the series will show you that.
