Here is a sweet finished heart that resembles a piece of candy.
I have a half dozen of these molds in my studio and I usually pour any leftover resin into them. They were purchased a few years ago in Michaels Craft Store. I have a feeling they were meant to bake tiny cupcakes. I never bake, so I am always in that section looking for interesting shapes to pour resin into.
You can see the layers of leftover resin that accumulated over the last two weeks.
I decided to glue a vintage German paper cutting to the top. Then I mixed up a tiny amount of Envirotex Lite resin. Recently someone asked if you could mix tiny batches. Yes, you can mix up a very small amount…as long as you measure properly. (See this blog post for a “how to.”)
Even though I mixed up such a small amount, after pouring Envirotex Lite on my heart and the new art, I still had some leftover. That I poured into the mold again. I think you can see how every drop of resin I make gets used.
My finished piece is so pretty…but it does make me think about buying myself a box of chocolate!
