New acrylic and resin range

I am currently working on a new range involving cutting shapes from acrylic and embedding metal leaf and dyes into the middle of the piece with resin as a plique-a-jour effect. Here’s the first prototype for a peace dove. I need to work on the join, but it’s pretty good.

Acrylic was cut out with a saw, using a sketch stuck on firmly with magic tape as a guide. Edges were filed and holes were drilled…

Join filled with epoxy resin, then heart shape filled with polyester resin and silver leaf mix…

Attached to necklace. I also added a coat of acrylic spray to seal the resin…
