An early Ron Lehocky heart for 2020's V-Day on

I went way back into PCD archives to pick out my 2020 Ron Lehocky valentine.

This is an early Ron though I’m not sure what year. Maybe he can tell us.

The background dots are black on color. They frame the dimensional heart whose dots reverse to color on black. It’s loose and carefree, probably from before he set his goal of 50,000 hearts.

Ron can make beautiful hearts in his sleep now. This playful version still sings.

Ron will probably reach his goal this year. That’s $500,000 raised for his Kids Center Heart Pin Project. Who better to feature on this day of love?

            Thanks, Cynthia, for featuring my “puffy heart” brooch. The origin of this process was an outgrowth of the heart project and dates back about 13 years. I would make a veneer and after cutting out a heart I would use the left over piece with the open heart shape as a die. After it was backed I then took another veneer and push it through the die piece to puff out the heart. I used poly fill to maintain the puffiness when I did a second bake. Final step was applying a backing and bake again.
            Thanks for making this Valentine day special.
