Powertex Heart Plaque

Using ivory powertex I painted the mdf heart and stuck on the clay faces. Added some cotton threads and waited for it all to dry. I left it overnight to cure.

Then I painted the string and the faces with decoart dazzling metallic paints and for the background I mixed up some primary elements pigments and decoart gloss varnish. Left it to dry.

Then went back in with various colours of PA treasure gold and DA metallic lustres. 

Unfortunately the weather is rubbish again today, no sun, just dark and gloomy so photos aren't that good.

We did have some sun, but lots of rain too.... Love the heart, Sam and the faces are just great.

I love the textures that the cotton threads create, a fabulous piece.
