Ranger's Melt Art Challenge...

'Melt Art, The Hottest Ticket' was The Ranger Designer Challenge for CHA Winter 2010. She has spent many happy hours enthralled by the magic on the big screen with the smell of popcorn wafting through the darkened theater, so she decided her theme would be a movie ticket.

Each participant was given a 10" x 10" wooden board, a ticket shape and Ranger's Melt Art products.

She painted the board with Claudine Hellmuth Studio paint in Charcoal Black. Then drew swirls and embossed parts with Black Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) and glued UTEE on other parts with Ranger's Glossy Accents.

She cut the ticket & painted it with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint in Modern Red, then embossed it with UTEE in Red Poppy. She embossed the letters and outline in Black UTEE.

She made the top of the popcorn container with white oak tag and embossed it with White & Red Poppy UTEE.

The most fun, by far, was making the popcorn! She made real popcorn and made molds with Ranger's Mold-n-Pour ( a two part silicone molding compound). She colored White UTEE in Ranger's Melting Pot using To Dye For & poured the melted UTEE into the popcorn molds. After they cooled, she popped them out and adhered all the elements together with Ranger's Wonder Tape and Locktite. She added Tim Holtz's Film Strip Ribbon to accentuate the popcorn explosion.

She painted the crevices of the popcorn with a mixture of Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints to complete the illusion.

Movies & Melt Art, wonderful together!
