It's our first Valentine's Day as husband and wife <3
The heart is made of this moldable porcelain stuff I got at Hobby Lobby and my sculpting skill are less then perfect so I took the lazy road and found this killer jello mold online for 2 bucks!
I'm assuming I didn't press hard enough when I was trying to fill the mold because a lot of the detail didn't turn out. It still has the general shape which is what matters, I suppose. Add a few coats of paint and voila! Easy peasy anatomical heart for Valentine's Day.

The Final Product

Still in the mold.

I carved a quote into the bottom that I thought suited us. (Excuse the bad penmanship.)

That is simply great. It makes me feel ashamed of my Valentine's day projects.
