    In response to Kiwifarmer

One of the first colours I got was called Verdigris. It is green, with specks of gold, brown, white, black, copper and I don't know what else in it. That gave me the idea for mixing the colours. I tried black and white once but the white was "off" and didn't melt. Black and silver together is dramatic. If you're quick, you can use a cocktail stick to make patterns through it while it is still hot. It looks like those iced biscuits, or latte art.

I mostly use metallics; gold, silver and copper. I've transformed ugly chipboard letters to gold with embossing powder, and I've "made" gold and silver buckles for Father Christmas's belt. Admittedly that was for a card but there's no reason why it couldn't be for a LO. Oh and I had a pack of balloon brads whose colour went funny (rust?) and I embossed those silver and gold.
