How To:

Let’s see he steps to make these clay roses. Before we begin, you have to excuse me for the bad pictures..!

Step 1:

Take a box of M-seal (alternatively Polymer clay can be used).

Step 2:

Mix both the parts by rolling together till the mix becomes completely white.

Step 3:

Divide the mix into small balls of the same proportion (Keep a part of the mix for making leaves) . From each small ball we will make one rose.

Step 4:

Take a ball and flatten it in your palm as shown.

Step 5:

Starting from one end and roll it towards the center. Mildly press to join the lower end like a stem.

Step 6:

Attach a metal string to form the stem.

Step 7:

Make leaves using clay and small dents in the leaves for veins.

Step 8:

Attach a metal string for each leaf.

Step 9:

Repeat steps 6 and 8 for all the flowers and leaves.

Allow the models to air dry for 45 minutes to an hour. The clay will harden.

Step 10:

Paint the flowers using acrylic colors.

Step 11:

Wrap the stems using green floral tape.

Step 12:

Similarly paint all the flowers, leaves and wrap floral tape for the pieces.

Step 12:

To make the vase, repeat steps 1 and 2 and shape it as needed. I’ve made a crooked one as I was bored with the usual clean neatly shaped vase!

Allow it to dry.

Step 13:

Paint the vase in a suitable color. Allow a coat to dry and apply another coat.

Arrange the flowers and leaves in the vase.

 Note : If Polymer clay is used, it has to be baked so that the model hardens. If M Seal or Fevicryl Hobby clay is being used, then it will air dry and harden.
