i love making things to adorn my hair.  i have also become quite addicted to making these.  the flowers are made of polymer clay rods and are molded onto bobby pins with polymer clay...no glue used.  they have been dipped in polyurethane twice to give them a nice glossy finish.  i'm pretty pleased with myself.

and an action shot...

Do they take long to make?
they are a process.  it takes about a day to get a final product, but that is waiting for glue to dry.  so i work on it a little, then take a three hour break, etc.  it would go much faster if i used hot glue as opposed to fabric glue...but i think fabric glue gives it a  less bumpy, neater finish.

i am all about adding embellishments to anything in or around my house.  lately friends have been in town, so i set up a sculpyture station on my living room coffee table.  catching up with old friends while mindlessly creating things is a great social gathering.  my plants ended up getting new trinkets.

i made the heart, intestines, and brain.  my friend made the foot.

husband made a gnome.  he's supposed to be peaking around a mushroom, but to me it looks like he's about to karate chop something.  husband always shows us up with his crafting skills...he's an artist/art teacher.

thanks for the compliment!  no they are not vulgar, nor are they absurd.  my username comes from my favorite velvet underground song,"like a dirty French novel combines the absurd with the vulgar."

i found a great tutorial for kanzashi on deviantart.  i did modify it a bit...didn't use rice glue and i added one small stitch to each petal to keep it together.  i used cotton fabric and ironed on backing to make it more stiff.  i actually made more, but gave them away before taking a pic.  they are all on bobby pins.  man.  they are fun to make, and the final product is so rewarding.
