Beautiful air-dry clay flower arrangement

Have you ever made flowers with clay?   Many brands of air-dry clay can be made into very thin, translucent petals that are also strong.   "Craft Ideas for All" has a nice little tutorial for creating roses and cherry blossoms to make the pretty arrangment shown here.     Other posts on their blog indicate that they use both Delight clay and Deco clay for their flowers.    

Tip:  This tutorial tints the air-dry clay with acrylic paints.   A less messy method is to use paste cake colorants like those made by Wilton .   Colorant sets are available in soft pastel, flower colors.

Hope you enjoy this tutorial!


  1. Cool! I never try to use clay in making a flower arrangement but it seems so interesting. Thanks for sharing this post. I've got an idea.


  2. What a cute flower is that? I like it. Thanks for sharing this one but can you add more information about this. LOve the flowers so much!


  3. Hi Toni, Did you miss the link to the tutorial where the artist explains how to make the arrangement? It contains many details. It's here http://craftideasforall.blogspot.com/2009/11/handmade-clay-roses-and-cherry-blossoms.html with the companion rose tutorial here http://craftideasforall.blogspot.com/2009/09/beautiful-clay-roses.html


Thank you very much for taking the time to comment! ;-)
Sorry I had to re-instate the 'word verification'...I'm getting far too much spam in the comment box.
