Faux wooden Heart

Faux wooden Heart

I’m not generally big on hearts but I couldn’t resist adapting my faux marquetry split pebble design into a heart. It’s very tactile too as I have finished it with a beautiful satin finish.

Thing a day – some of my things so far

I am taking part in a Thing a Day (TAD) for February challenge on the PCC forum and have really been enjoying it. So far I have managed to make something everyday and I am really enjoying it.

They were lovingly hand polished to a glass like shine with wet and...

Love is in the air….

Here’s some images of some custom hearts I made before Christmas. They are hand size, so you can hold them in your hand. I made them from hearts shaped out of scrap clay, covered with cane slices. and a couple of close ups of what I think are my favourites, although that changes every time I looked at...
