Inspired by the clever belt buckles I saw on many of the riders during the Hits Horse Show in March, I am attempting a couple of my own. Using some of my photos from the Hits Horse Show we attended in Ocala, Florida in March I am starting a gift for a friend.
I was privileged to meet a real artist in Ocala, named Allison! Not only is she a talented creative genius she is so quick-witted that I recommended she pursue stand-up or jump right into comedy television.
Inspired by Allison’s belt buckle designs, I ordered a set of buckle forms from Etsy. Using paper and photos I attached the paper images to the inside of the belt buckle “shell”. After mixing the resign I poured it over the paper design and set the buckle on a foam source to keep it level and stationary. I have been on bubble watch for a few hours. When I notice a bubble appearing, I remove it with a tiny toothpick tip.
Now I wait and wait. And wait… I will update in a week (or two). Resin seems to take forever to dry!
