A Plate Full of Hearts

I have been making my clay hearts by hand previously and although they are quite sweet I was really only manipulating the swirled lentils I had made and they didn't make a statement. Then a couple of weeks a go I bought a latex mold to try something a bit different. The first ones I made I was quite please with, until I decided to double bake them for strength. They ended up overcooked, not burnt but just cooked a little bit too much so that they discoloured. Still Evie thinks they're beautiful still so she has had them for her dress up.
My second batch were much better I just haven't had time to sand a buff them yet, this weekend maybe?
