Today is my first day over at Creative Paperclay and I am so excited to share my rose tutorial with you. I am mostly going to be featuring my clay projects for my cards and or scrapbook pages, but today I wanted to see if I could actually make a 3D rose. I've been making these roses out of scrap paper and love the way they turn out, so I thought I'd probably be able to make them out of the paper clay also. I am using this rose for a project for my mom, it was supposed to be for Mother's day but I was running a bit behind and somethings were taking longer than others so I will be at least sharing the tutorial with you. Once the project is complete I will share it also. So let's start:
First I rolled out my paper clay with my acrylic roller. I purchased a package of plastic mats (2 per pack) at the Dollar Tree to use for my paperclay. Depending on how big or thick you want your rose is what determines the thickness of your clay. I rolled it to 1/4" thick and used a 6 petal flower cookie cutter and cut 3 flowers.
Take the 5 petal flower and mold the seems together, careful as not to distort the petals though. Next take your 4 petal flower and do the same, the 3 petal flower the same, 2 petal the same and cut most of the tip off the end;
You can really see how it shimmers.
I am very happy with my first real 3D project with paperclay and can't wait to show you how I used this fabulous flower on a project coming soon.
Oh Brenda! That looks fab! I love it!ReplyDelete
