Here is the front of my finished heart.
Here is the back.
In yesterday's post I told you that I poured Envirotex Jewelry Resin into my heart and let it cure for a full 48 hours. I needed my resin to be completely solid before I pulled the tape away from the back. Red Line tape is very strong and sticky and I did not want to bend or warp my clay or resin by tugging the tape away too soon.
When I pulled the tape from the back here is what I found.
1. The tape residue is still here. It is sticky and hard to remove.
2. You can see my gold Pearl-Ex powder clung really nicely to all the edges of the clay.
Some of the resin poured over the side of the heart.
I can easily cut this away.
I could not resist looking to see if my heart was still translucent. It is!
To deal with the sticky residue on the back I brushed some silver Pearl-Ex across the back.
Then I inked my rubber stamp with black Staz-On and stamped my image to the back. I did apply one last glaze coat of Jewelry Resin to the back to ensure that my image was permanently encased in resin.
My two best friends!
