Start with a wooden panel canvas. Turn around and paint the inside black.
1
I used IOD Moulds Cherub and Fleur-di-lis to make a winged heart design.
2
Use a plastic spatula to remove excess clay. The handy micro rim helps to get a sharp edge.
3
Glue down Cherub.
4
Create a flat area for the heart mould. Sorry cherub 😚
5
Sorry Cherub!!!
6
Up next we will glue on the heart.
7
Use any strong glue to adhere your moulds.
8
I use a popsicle stick to smear the glue on the back.
9
Smear or brush on :)
10
Tight bond quick and thick is a great option also.
11
Place your heart over the middle area.
12
Press down all of the edges gently.
13
Be careful of the moulds details.
14
Make sure your design is lined up well before your glue dries.
15
Make any changes before your moulds dry.
16
Add glue to the little heart.
17
Add glue in the same way.
18
Position heart over the larger heart.
19
Gently press done all edges.
20
Check back often to make sure it’s in place.
21
Here’s the wings and feathers design!
22
An optional finishing touch.
23
Adds a little interest.
24
Let it dry and up next we will paint the design.
25
Paint the inside and your moulds all one color. I used black.
26
Apply the patina. Follow the steps on the box for the full process.
27
Optional: apply rust patina. Follow detailed steps on box.
28
I’m using a brush to add....
29
Bronze Gilding Wax
30
See how it makes the details pop 🥰
31
Of course the wings need a little sparkle 🤩
32
I love the rust and bronze sparkle together.
33
A close up of the moulds and patina rusty goodness 😊
34
Next, I added wallet size photos that I had printed at a local drug store photo.
35
I added photos of our sweet Sophie so that we can have them in a special place. 💖
