Confession, I have a bit of an obsession with hearts! No matter what I’m creating I am always drawn to incorporate a heart. Also, living in a cold climate for most of the year, it can get pretty grey, so I also crave colour. This next project was a natural for me … a “Rainbow Heart Bracelet”
I wanted the colours to be intense and sharp and what’s better than paint chips for deep true colours? I visited my local hardware store that has a sea of walls with paint chips where you are welcomed to take some home – ostensibly for checking if a colour fits your home décor – but I’m sure they didn’t mind me taking a few for other purposes. It’s all in the name of heart art!
Paint chips are white on the back of course and for this project you will see both sides of the heart so I glued two hearts together. Then I modge podged the sides so that when I resin there was not a chance that any would leak through and stain the paper. You can’t seal enough when working with paper and resin!
I placed them on a Resin Obsession Drying Mat and used Castin’ Craft Easycast Clear Casting Epoxy because it’s the best resin for creating a bit of a dome. Also because they are so small and pouring the resin required a great deal of accuracy, I put the resin in a squeeze bottle which gave me more control.
