Hearts, hearts, hearts

I have been experimenting with some other colours of these hearts inspired by the Swedish paper hearts at Christmas.  The first one I designed is this handpainted green and blue on bronze clay.  The colours of the land and sea as I good friend commented when she saw the pendant.

Here is the process with red and purple clay.  First the clay heart, next the eyepin for the bail.

Colour with pearl ex powder, the add 5 to 6 layers of liquid polymer clay over the powder.

At first I thought about going for purple and pewter but in the end switched the liquid clay over to a bright red.  I am really happy with how they turned out.

Now for sanding and buffing later this week.  Hope to have to experiment with a few more colour combinations before the Christmas markets.
