    I assume that those "onlays" are glued-on items made from baked polymer clay (Premo, Kato Polyclay, Fimo, etc.)... and that the "melted" stuff is either liquid polymer clay that's been tinted with brown oil paint, etc., or solid polymer clay (dark brown) that's been thinned down with liquid polymer clay (or a few other things).

    If you want to read more about those techniques/materials, check out these pages at my polymer clay "encyclopedia" site:

    http://glassattic.com/polymer/miniatures.htm (click on *Frostings, Icings, Etc* then scroll down the the "Thinner Icings/Glazes/Jellies/Etc" section)

    http://glassattic.com/polymer/LiquidSculpey.htm (click on the category *Coloring & Inclusions*)

    The thicker frostings can also be made with materials like white silicone caulking, etc, but polymer clay will be stronger (if not using Sculpey III, SuperSculpey or original Sculpey which will be brittle if it's thin).
