Pawprint Hearts
I am really hurting from a recent vet bill (four figures from two surgeries), so I'm making these charms in hope to get a little extra money. I'm starting to doubt whether they are as cute as I think they are. :P  

They are made from polymer clay and acrylic paint. The top and bottom rows were created by applying paint and wiping it off while wet. I got a bit creative in the middle row by applying a layer of paint (red on left, yellow on right) and letting it dry; then applying a different color paint (black on left, green on right) and wiping it off while wet.  I am interested in opinions on the techniques. Which do you like better? Any thoughts on color combinations? (I think light under dark works better because the paint is not terribly thick, so light doesn't cover dark well.)

If you'd be interested in purchasing one (and/or helping me out), they are available on Etsy:…

Rats are my thing, but I can make them into mice or guinea pigs or hamsters. 

If you want to help but don't really want a charm, I also set up a GoFundMe:…

Okay!  How was the move?  Which critters did the move with you?  How are things at the park?  Are you at the light house or a different location?
