Come Fly With Me

This morning I had to get something from my completed art work stash and I saw all my little clay heart magnets and was so inspired by them. I pulled them out so I could look at them this evening. Sure enough, during a break from work, I went to MIchaels (craft store) and bought some clay so I could make some more of these fun and funky magnets. I have several of these on my fridge and they always make me smile. PLUS: They inspire me creatively.

I hand sculpted the clay hearts and painted them in a number of ways. Then after they were completely dry, I added sculpey finish (glossy). When that was dry, I glued the sculpted hearts to some wings I had cut out from old tins that I had in my storage room. Oh, the tins were so happy to finally be used for something.

I really felt the urge to make more of these and after selling several on etsy tonight, I am really encouraged.

So, tonight, I hand sculpted several clay hearts in hot pink, bright red and purple. Tomorrow when they have cooled off, I will paint them and begin the process of assemblage. These little heart magnets are just what I needed right now.
