Marbled hearts to celebrate Good Deeds Day

Since the first time that I saw Merycherry colorful hearts, I wanted to integrate them to one of my art classes. 

This day finally arrived! As one of the Good Deeds Day's Ambassadors, I'm creating an event at Mint Studio to celebrate the date, April, 7th, and these marbled hearts are part of it!
We will be working in four different art projects to spread some kindness around. Class will be divided in four parts and the hearts are included in the self-love segment, this powerful feeling that help us getting in touch with ourselves, our well-being and our happiness.
Kids will be creating heart necklaces as a reminder to love and respect themselves.

Pick three colors of clay. 
If you are uncertain how to mix the colors, 
you can use the color wheel to help you!

To mix the colors, I used a "technique" that I use since I was a kid: the snake!  Roll each color out about 4 inches long. Twist each color together. Fold and then twist again until the colors are blended the way you want.

Form a ball with the clay. Use a wooden rolling pin 
to flatten the clay then use the cookie cutter to make your hearts.

In case you want to make a necklace with them, 
use a stick to make a hole on the top of the heart.

Bake them for 15 minutes and you'll have a 
beautiful collection of hearts to make a necklace, hand them out to friends or leave them around as a piece of art + kindness abandonment. You can also add a positive word on each one of them and make them even more special.
