Today’s video is the fourth and final in our polymer clay Wildflower Candle Holder series. Have you enjoyed learning how to make these different flowers and foliage? I’d be interested to know your favorites or if there were any you found too hard.
Making leaves with real leaf texture is one of my favorite techniques, because it’s so easy, but so effective.
By the way, I didn’t think to mention it in the video, but it’s a good idea after baking to gently peel the taller flowers and leaves off the vase and secure them down with a few tiny dabs of super glue.
I would recommend washing the outside of your candle holder by rinsing gently under running water. Or dust it with a soft brush. Any kind of wiping with a cloth may break off pieces. But if things do break off, super glue is your friend. 🙂
If you make anything using these tutorials, please send me your project photos. I’d love to see them!
