How to make a clay carnation
Click here for a tutorial to make the carnation shown above. Remember, this may be a sugarcraft tutorial, but you will be using air-dry clay! Cutters and veiners are tools used to create the carnation in this tutorial. Making clay flowers with air-dry clay is not as common in USA as other countries, so molds & cutters for leaves and petals can sometimes be quite expensive. Most are designed for, and used by, commercial bakeries. However, lower-cost petal molds are starting to become available (such as those shown here) or you can make your own cutters. See this post for making cutters.
Hope you enjoy making carnations!
