Textured Heart Pin
Michelle here with a fun idea you can make for Valentines Day or just because you love hearts!
I started with a vintage church votive candle holder because I liked the texture on the outside. Then I mixed equal amounts of white and yellow Amazing Mold Putty until one uniform color of yellow.
After about 15 minutes the putty was ready to be removed.
Amazing Mold Putty was used to make a coil that I formed on that pen line. I pressed the putty on the outside and used my fingers to keep the putty true to the heart shape. Before it had a chance to set, I used a small embossing tool to pull the putty out of the textured parts of the mold where I wanted a clean look.
Amazing Casting Resin into the measuring cups provided.
Before mixing, I added 4 drops of Red Alumilite Dye to resin "A".
Silver Alumilite Metallic Powder to the inside walls of the set mold. Next I mixed the resin together and poured it carefully into the mold. Some of the silver powder rose to the top, but this was OK. I saved just a bit of the resin in the cup. When the resin was almost completely hard (about 10 minutes), I added a bit of the leftover resin to the back of the heart with a tooth pick. Then I placed a pin backing in that resin and added some more with the toothpick, almost making a 'built in adhesive'!
Thanks for coming by, I hope you liked my Textured Heart Pin!
