How do You #Cre8time Love Thee... Valentine's Day Conversation Hearts by Lyn Gill

Hi everyone! Lyn Gill here again – Let's have a conversation about... what else, "Conversation Hearts"! A quaint Valentine's tradition, these little candy hearts with a message for your loved one inscribed on the front. So why not create them in resin?

First I sculpted the hearts out of Super Sculpey. I made them double-sided so I could mold two off of each heart.

Using Amazing Mold Putty, I created a mold for each side of my sculpted hearts. I then mixed up Amazing Casting Resin with some Alumilite Dye in two cups – one colored red and one pink. In a third cup I left some resin uncolored, then poured into the molds and let cure. After cured and removed, I mixed up some Amazing Clear Cast Resin with some Alumilite Dye in Red and some red glitter to make the last two hearts.

I used acrylic paint to fill in the lettering with a fine detail brush. I created a bowl using Cat Kerr's demo from CHA using an embossing folder and Amazing Casting Resin, with resin formed over a bowl while still pliable. What a super cute & fun project!

What Valentine's Day projects
have you come up with this year?

Well thank you so much for stopping by... Till Next Time! Lyn
