How to Wire a Spray of Clay Flowers
In the video below, Donna Lane shows us how to assemble our air-dry clay flowers into a spray or other arrangement. This video demo features gumpaste flowers, but the process is exactly the same for air-dry clay flowers.
If you haven't made any clay flowers yet, see menu bar above for 'Clay Flowers'. There you'll find a list of different types of flowers you can make following some previously posted tutorials. There are a number of different air-dry clays that work well for creating realistic flowers. You'll want to have a light clay that will let you create very thin petals that will dry strong and a little flexible. Homemade cold porcelain works well along with commercial brands such as Craft Porcelain, Lumina, Delight, DecoClay, Cloud Clay, Hearty Clay, and many other brands of soft, or semi-soft, clays.
