Glittering Anatomical Heart

Tonight I'm sharing a super cool anatomical heart necklace! Being a nursing student I get a kick out of body parts- this is weird most of the time but for Halloween it becomes a main stream trend!




It is made with the Anatomical Heart Mold from Cats-Purrfect!
She has a lot of different molds available and she even has a YouTube channel display her molds!
You can get your own molds here: http://www.cats-purrfect.com/
And check out videos of them here: http://www.youtube.com/user/catspurrfect



Spray the mold with some Castin' Crafts Mold Release and settle the mold in a bowl of sand to keep it level...


Mix up a batch of EasyCast Resin and color it blue. I also added loads of blue glitter.
*ETI recommends wearing gloves for your safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice!


Using a toothpick fill in the deepest areas of the mold.
Let this set for at least 12 hours before moving on.


Now mix up a batch of EasyCast Resin and color it red. To get a more blood color I added the tiniest amount of blue. I also added a bunch of red glitter.


Finish filling the mold and let set for 24-72 hours to harden.


Just gorgeous! The glitter settles into the bottom of the mold and makes it super sparkly!


To turn this awesome heart into a necklace I'm using Aanraku Assorted Large Bails. They have loads of pieces that work perfectly with resin! You can check out what they offer here: http://store.abasg.com/mm5/merchant.mvc


 Apply some E-6000 to the bail and press firmly to the back of the piece. Let this set for 24 hours to reach maximum adhesion.


I love how these bails have large loops so you can just slide it onto your necklace!


And now you have a great Halloween necklace perfect for zombie lovers and nursing students!
