DIY Heart Resin Art | Valentine's Day Crafts | Craft Klatch

Learn how to create a Resin Art Heart in this Valentine's Day Craft Tutorial!  I was asked if I had any ideas on how to combine a wood heart, letters and resin.  I didn't, but I collected the items and this is what I came up with!  

Here is a quick video, so you can see exactly how I made it:

Directions:

1.  I had this wood heart and removed the ribbon.  I did not throw the ribbon away because I wanted to use it to measure the replacement ribbon.

2.  I painted the heart white, so the resin would have a nice neutral base.

3.  I painted the love wording, with gold acrylic paint.

4.  I mixed six ounces of resin and split it into three cups and reserved some too.

5.  I added pigments.  The first was a mix of white and red, to make pink and the others were just plain red and plain white.

6.  I began pouring the resins onto the heart, in no particular pattern.



7.  Once I had all the resin on the heart, I picked it up and leaned it from side to side, so it could cover more of the heart.

8.  I used my stir stick to move the resin to the edges.

9.  I used my torch to pop any bubbles.

9.  I carefully dropped the love into the wet resin.

10.  I then used the reserved clear resin and dripped it all over the love.


11.  I used the torch to pop any bubbles and let it sit for at least 12 hours.

There it is, all cured, but is lacking a ribbon!

12.  I had some wide black ribbon, left over from something, and I added it to the heart.

That's it!  Now you can hang it up!




That's it!  Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
