clay slab in heart shape

Here is another Christmas present.  Probably for my older sister.  The girls in my family have a rule where our Christmas presents for each other must be hand-made.  My mum is a fine-artist usually painting in oils – doing still life. Check out my mum’s website . My older sister does water colour and caligraphy and my younger sister does photography.

Process included making slab of BRT clay, cut out heart shape, punch holes around the edge, fired, paint using acrylic paints and an antiquing product, spray with sealant, weave the leather strap through the holes, put beads on the end of the leather straps.  This was my first time ever using acrylic paint on clay.
