Boutineer

Last night I made a sample boutineer.  I learned some valuable lessons about making flowers out of clay:

  • Everybody warns about overworking the clay.  Underworking it is just as bad – it makes the texture odd.
  • A little pigment goes a LONG way
  • No matter how much you want to – DO NOT work with the flowers until they are completely dry
  • Remember to order green clay for the stems when placing the whole order.

So, here it is – my first boutineer!  Brought to you in blurry camera phone splendor!  I made each of the mistakes I warned against above, so don’t judge me too harshly :o)

I had planned not to do dice in the little flowers, but I might change my mind on that….we’ll have to see.
