DIY Food Picks
Mod Mold – Frames
melt hot glue or Mod gluesticks
Spouncer and Fine-tip brush
hot air gun
Wide washi tape
art for the frame (download, what I here)
step 1. You press your hot glue or mod melt gluesticks on the Mod frame of your choice melt. If you are using hot glue, with a low-temp glue gun.
If you gluesticks, melt Mod to make sure that you melt a high-temp glue gun , to ensure even and easy to press together.
Wait to harden for your frame. Don’t sweat, if it doesn’t turn perfect! If you strive for perfection, you may want to use polymer clay.
step 2. Disconnect your frame from your mold. To cut, use nail scissors for the edges.
step 3. For a cleaner edge, use a hot air gun to slightly melt the edges of the frame (bursts, about 5 second or so). Do not concentrate the heat on the frame too much because it will melt and stick to the surface you are using.
step 4. You paint your images – it’s best to use a new color (still ongoing), and spounce as few times as possible. Paint two coats for full coverage.
Use a detail brush to the corners and angles of the frame. To ensure full insurance coverage, select a darker color over a lighter. Make sure that the color on the back as well.
step 5. Print out your ‘art’. I made a few that’s to download in the supply list (linked), but you can make your own as well.
you measure the inside of the frame, and add about 0.1 cm bleed all round ensure that their kind fits just right on the frame.
If you are with me, print it out in scale 1:1. The top three are for the rectangular frame, and the bottom two are for the round.
step 6. Glue or stick your ‘art’ on the back of the frame.
step 7. Cut your skewer down to size using your knife. You can also use food picks or toothpicks.
step 8. You attach your choice with hot glue, or use washi tape for a less permanent option. And you are done!
