Just a couple of steampunk hearts I made on the weekend.

Thanks to all who helped me with my macro photography issues.

i like how yours turned out Smiley i like the sash on the left one, how it looks like it was sewn on, but i think i like the one on the right even more. im jealous of the shine yours got. can i ask what glaze you used on them? i have a varathane that ive tried using and it makes my things quite shiney but because the hearts i had made with a powder colouring it would come of ever so slightly after baking so i didnt want to brush a glaze on them incase the colour might smudge together a bit more than i'd like.

I usually use Future floor polish for a glaze, and it seems to work fine. The more layers you build up the better, and as it goes on like water, it can take a lot of coats. On this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370670.0 project here, I did several coats and baked it dry. Admittedly it's flat, so the Future could 'pool' more, but it came out really shiny. I think because the Future goes on so thinly it would be okay with something with powder on it.
When I worked in a craft store we used to sell a really thick glaze that would give an awesome shine, but I haven't seen it for years.
