I hate eating these candies, but I love them because they are cute and signify that it is Valentine's time. This project has been a long time coming. I had the idea last year and never got my butt in gear to do it. Inspiration struck on Sunday morning, because procrastination is always the best driver for my creativity.
What you need:
- Wooden picture frames
- Pour on (or another kind of 2-part epoxy resin) I got pour on from Michaels. It is on the glue aisle.
- Disposable cups, paper plates, wax or parchment paper, Popsicle sticks for stirring
- Acrylic paints and a paint brush
- Candy conversation hearts (buy a big bag, or two) You will need more than you think, there will be a lot of rejects.
- blue painter's tape
- A mask and gloves
- Other optional supplies- molds that can be used with resin (I used an IKEA ice cube tray and castin' craft mold.), stickers, beads and glitter, candy sprinkles.
**First and foremost--make sure you are working in a well ventilated area! Wear gloves and a mask. Read all of the directions that come with your resin and follow them exactly for optimum results and safety.**
First, Tape up the back of your frame. If you don't care about drips on the back, then skip this part.
