Following yesterday's single heart project I thought I would show you how I create a dozen hearts.
I have several dollar stores in my area and they always release new ice cube trays. This was the Valentine's ice cube tray and it was $1.
I decided to work as through each opening was a regular bezel. (Normally in a mold, the bottom becomes the top layer and you need to think backwards.) My first pour of Envirotex Lite was tinted with red transparent die
and and I added in a little glitter. When this layer was cured I placed my paper heart and brass charm on top and then covered that layer with about 1/8 of an inch of clear Envirotex Lite.
They popped out very easily from the ice cube tray.
I did have some sanding to do.
My final step was to drill holes through each heart so I could add a simple wire attachment.
Twelve embellishments done simply and quickly.
