Clay Flowers

One thing I like about clay flowers is the freedom to choose the color. We can have green rose or pink lilac at any time when needed for wedding, hair accessories, brooch,  cake topper or home decoration. 

We can have blue, purple or black roses if you want it.

My idea of making flowers with clay is not to copy the nature. But to make pieces or arrangement for special occasion with harmony and balance in term of shape and color. 

Do you prefer to make life-like flowers? Yes? it's not easy though.

Do you know  the size of the petals?  the veins? do you have suitable cutter for the petals and leaves? If your answers are no, don't bother to buy expensive cutters. You can still have beautiful flowers without those cutters.  . 

So, let's make hand-made flowers without mold or cutters - just use usual basic clay tools.

Design Resources:

clay art for all seasons

Honestly, the book titled "Clay Art for All Seasons" written by Yukiko Miyai where she makes flowers without cutters inspired my clay flowers creations.

I love the way she chose the color for her flowers to match any decors in special event like wedding, engagement, housewarming and birthday party.

You can easily make beautiful centerpiece, party favors or holiday gifts for all seasons following her tutorials. You'll love this book as much as I am.
