Bio-Mechanism Alteration by monsterkookies Bio-Mechanism Alteration by monsterkookies
This heart is a remake, and is based off the 90th piece in my Industrial Heart collection, entitled, Bio-Mechanism.

This definitely isn't a heart that I get to make very often, but it's probably the most finicky to make since I have to keep the metallic look of metal away from the bright red hues of the heart - this definitely requires me to be a little more careful and usually creates quite a few dirtied cotton swabs drenched in alcohol. Oi. That mica powder clings to everything - especially that nice red heart surface that needs to be spotless. The veins are three dimensional as opposed to painted, like the original. There are also pieces of the panels that are being "peeled" back.

Each of my Industrial Hearts starts with an anatomically correct human heart made from polymer clay - the base. With all of the components of a real human heart, it has also been made to look metallic and Industrial with its panelling and rivets. Gears, metal findings, and other various things are also added.

The entire piece is about 1 1/2" tall and is antiqued with black acrylics and then finished with a satin glaze for a slight metal sheen. It has a loop in the top that is attached to a keyring style jumpring and is strung on an 18" silver tone link chain with lobster clasp.

That strong, clear red really stands out against the metallic surface. I'll bet it's hard to keep that colour pure and clean. It's a really lovely piece of work.
