This time we are showing you how to make flowers out of polymer clay. Its quite simple and you wont believe how beautiful the out come once you’ve made one! All you need is some petals and you can impress people with your polymer clay beauties in all colors.
Materials : Orange and white clay, and a translucent clay, headpins and cutter
Break the clay into random bits (or equal bits, however you want them)
Shape the bits as shown on above image
Stick them together as shown above
From the bits I had I could do that twice
Press them on the sides and make them into a tear shape
Join the two as shown above. If you only have one, cut it in half and join the two half so the petals shows more details.
Roll them to a cylinder shape
Cut the ends as above picture. You’ll need them later on
Slice the cylinder into small pieces as shown above. These will be your petals so it’ll good if you keep some consistency in the size
These 2 are from the ends that were cut out previously, make them into a sphere and cut it into half.
wrap the top of head pins as shown above
This is how it looks like
With the “petals” that you slice out earlier, press them between your fingers and shape them
You can already see the patterns and the translucent effect.
Lightly press the bottom to give the petals more details
For a more natural/delicate look, press and flatten the edges of the petals to shape it.
Take each petals and press it with a tool on the clay with the headpin on it
You should have something similar to this when you have all 5 petals join together
You can have another few more petals join on top so it has a more 3D effect. The top petals should be place in between of the petals below.
with another few smaller petals on top
Once you’re happy with your flower, you can bake it on tin foil. When it’s done, in the middle you can glue on a bead, clay, glass or stone.
This is how it looks like after baking
Not too hard to achieve, isn’t it?
You can also experiment the flower with different colors and shapes and make them accessories, charms or jewellers!
The Floor is yours…
