Tutorial: Clay flowers-Make this festive rose arrangment
This flower arrangement is very striking. I like the red, green, white color combination. This would make a lovely decoration for the Christmas holidays. Maybe if I get started on making an arrangement like this now, I might finish it by December! LOL
Deco Clay was used to create flowers shown in demo. Homemade cold Porcelain, purchased Craft Porcelain, Delight, Daisy, Hearty and Makin's Clay are a few other clays suitable for this project.
See tutorial at Craft Ideas for All
Red, white and green clay will be needed. For cold porcelain and clay brands that aren't available pre-colored, tint your white clay with a little acrylic paint, with color paste made for cake decorating & sugarcraft or with colorants made especially for cold porcelain.
If you're not familiar with colorants, Wilton Icing Colors, shown here, is one example of colorants that are available in paste form from cake decorating suppliers, at Michaels and online at Amazon. Jars of paste colorants can be purchased as individual colors or as sets.
Colorants specifically for cold porcelain are not readily available in USA, but you might find a supplier on the web.
