Today I have for you the third in our series on how to make this floral votive candle holder. So far we’ve done large leaves with a simple scrap cane, fiddle heads and ferny-type things (Part 1,) salvia/larkspur type flowers and tall phlox, which with the right colors, leaves and height quite resemble geraniums (Part 2.)
This week we’re making a sweet old fashioned flower that I love: rose campion. In the video I show you an easy way to get the look of many scattered leaves.
We’ll also make pansies/violets/violas to fill in the under story of our wildflower garden.
Next week will be the fourth and final installment, so check back!
Tools and Materials:
- polymer clay scraps in green, Silver, pink and purples, with a tiny bit of yellow
- Premo Sculpey Spanish Olive (used for the pansy leaves)
- Clay Blade
- needle tool (I’ve been loving this set from Harbor Freight)
- single edge razor blade
- teardrop and round cutters from this Kemper Cutters 4 Piece Set
- mica powders or chalk pastels
Enjoy the video and happy creating.
