You may need to look a bit closely at these photos. Do you see the tiny colored roses and leaves that grace my sweet little tot? We will be making these amazing flowers for our next First Monday class downtown at Cottage of the Seasons! They can be used to embellish jewelry, how cute would a bouquet of these be as a brooch?? They can be added to photo frames for a romantic touch, what the heck, they can be used to embellish whatever you’re heart desires!! The possibilities are endless. I tend to find sweet orphan figurines that have a flaw… too cute to pass up. This is one example. The baby was in perfect shape, with the exception of a couple of broken ceramic parts. Guess what was glued onto the damaged areas? Handmade roses! (among other things…;) ).
You must join us as we explore the miniature world of flower making. I have to also mention that these wee blooms were made by yours truly a good 15 years or so ago. Made from a secret recipe of handmade clay, they have withstood the test of time and were never even sealed or coated for protection. No worries, I’ll be sharing that recipe with you! :) Now, please don’t go leaving them outside in the rain and such just to prove a point! ;) They are so much fun and really do resemble fine china when finished! Make as many as time allows, experiment and surprise me with colors, variations and uniqueness! Remember, whatever it is that I show to you how to do, I would never expect (or want) you to copy the design completely. I hope that you take the main idea or skill and create something entirely different! That’s the fun of ART and creating!
I’ll post a reminder as the time approaches… hope to see you there for an evening of fun and friendship!!
