Claudine Hellmuth Resin Filled Belt Buckle


I am sure it would not surprise you that even though I make hundreds of resin pieces myself  I still buy resin art and crafts when I find it.  I just had to have this belt buckle when Claudine Hellmuth listed it in her web store 5 or 6 years ago.


The reason it caught my eye was the girl.  
I think she looks like me.  
And the quote.  
It sounds like me.


Claudine used Envirotex Lite for this project.  You can see how fabulous the art looks so many years later.  My friends at Environmental Technologies Inc. (manufacturers of Envirotex Lite) explained to me that fluorescent lighting can really hurt projects like this over time.  (Just walk down the fluorescent tube aisle in a hardware store and you'll see how the boxes are faded on merchandise that isn't selling.)
I kept this belt buckle in my jewelry cabinet so it has not been exposed to much light.  I love it as much today as the first time I spotted it on line!  Thanks Claudine!!!
