Happy Valentine's Day!
I wanted to make some hearts that look like heart milagros, but they are not quite finished.
The first set I took these wood angels (left) and cut the bottom of them to look like fire or a crown. I then glued it to the back of a paper mache heart.
Here is the front side.
And I might well make a handful.
The other set, I used wood appliques and cut them each into two pieces. I cut them with a bit of a curve so they would fit to the top of the heart. I just used a dremel with a circular blade.
Here they are with the wood pieces attached. I used regular gel to attach the two and have a thin piece of paper on the backside to help hold them together.
I've gessoed all of these, but still need to paint them and add gold leaf.
