Polymer Clay Flowers/Star Gazer Lily


I’ve been very busy creating some polymer clay flowers the last few days. Taking my cake decorating skills and transposing them into clay has been an experiment to say the least but it does work with a little tweaking. I made this Star Gazer lily a couple days ago and applied some watercolor paint to it. I love the soft effect I achieved.  Today I made a smaller version and painted it with powders so I could compare the two and decide which one worked best for florals. I must say I think I like the watercolor effect best but they both look good. Currently I am working on another necklace for a magazine submission using the Star Gazer as the focal.

 I’m thinking about posting a tutorial on this Lily in the near future so if you’re interested in that  please leave me a comment at the end of this blog.

My Granddaughter’s birthday is approaching soon, so rather than buying her something, I created a special little sculpture for her. Sure had fun with this one and I’m sure she’ll love it.  I can see some Christmas Ornaments coming at some point. Those should be really fun to create. Little kids love to see their names on things and my Grandkids are no different. I love making things for them!

Here’s another floral necklace I created a few days ago. I would do this one a little different next time though. I should’ve surrounded the petals with some baking soda to keep them from drooping. Live and learn I suppose.  I’ll be listing this one in my Etsy shop in a day or so. Still have a few things to finish on it first.

I love working with polymer clay! It’s the best stress reliever around if you ask me.
