I did these for the recent Random Swap Rd 2. I love how the sacred heart turned out! It's so lovely and textural. The second was fun to paint, done in acrylics on a piece of wood.

Haha I know. I'm trying to think how big the heart is now....probably the size of a small woman's fist. Tennis ball sized except longer.

That is so cool. I really love this. Such great work!! I'm really fond of Day of the Dead skulls. I love how they combine the morbid with the lively and colourful.

I really love the sacred heart. Did you use polymer clay? I like the texture and how realistic it looks! Great job.

Yeah I used tinfoil as the base and layered polymer clay on top of it (sculpey brand). The veins are done with puffy fabric paint and I slapped layers of paint over it after it was all done drying.
