Passon Heart for Valentine: Rhinestone and Resin Sacred Heart Pendant
This is where my art history background becomes visible. I love religious symbolism, jewelry, decor, etc... My favorite period is medieval and one of my favorite pieces of symbolism is the sacred heart. I decided to make my own clunky sacred heart charm using air dry clay, amazing mold rubber, amazing casting resin, red rhinestones, and red, orange and yellow glitter.
I started off with some air dry clay.
I made a scared heart charm and was so excited that I forgot to take a photo of it. I let the charm air dry and then made a mold using amazing mold rubber.
You end up sacrificing your clay piece removing it from the mold. Then using amazing casting resin,, cast a charm.
I had to use a file to clean up the flames a little.
Now, pull out the glitter. I had Tulip Fashion Glitter on hand so that is what I used.
It worked GREAT!
I glittered the heart because you will would be able to see the white in between rhinestones. This created a nice background.
You can use clear resin, glue, modge podge or whatever you have on hand to cover the surface with glitter. I used white glue. I glittered the heart red and the flames, yellow and orange. Let dry. It takes about 20 minutes.
Now take out your red rhinestones and start at the top of the heart and work your way down. I mixed up a small amount of clear resin and dripped a small amount on the surface and a q-tip to place the rhinestones. I placed about 2 rows along the sides and put 1 rhinestone on the flame tips.
After wearing it one night I noticed it did flip around a lot, So I glued some red rhinestone paper from the Buckle Boutique to the back of the pendant.
Now if it flips around, it won't be as obvious!
I am pleasantly shocked at how cool this came out! I also made a clay heart with wings that will be my next project!
