Inspired by the flower necklace in this post
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=247537.0
I decided to try my hand at making flowers- that didnt turn out as I had planned
I had some clay lying around from another project that also turned out badly- I dont think clay is my forte

but I like these....




I made two different roses.. or maybe theyre gardenias
this one came out best although one of the petal broke off



this one has the center smushed in



Im not quite sure that to do with them
any ideas?

I actually love the picture of the white flower on your hand, it would make a great ring.

These are very pretty.  I love the color of the blue one, and they are all very sweet and lovely.

I also like the rose as a ring.  Another idea: when I was growing up, my grandmother had a magnolia tree, and we would float a magnolia blossom in a shallow bowl of water, instead of a vase.  When I saw your roses, I was reminded of that.  Then I saw in another post that you can do resin!  So . . . I don't know anything about resin, but could it be "water" (but solid, of course) for a flower to "float" on?

Just a thought!  Wink  Like I said, I really like it as a ring, as well.

Yeah I could definitely see it as a ring but to be honest theyre pretty big so Id have to do them on a smaller scale. But its worth a try. Thanks for the ideas. =]

Wow,  I'm so flattered that my necklace became inspiration for these..
You've done a really good job on them. I think they'd look great as a ring... a real statement. But if you don't fancy them as rings, i think they would also make pretty badges, maybe to go on a bag, or a jacket? Just an idea

I think they're very pretty!  (you did good  Grin)

You didn't say what brand of clay you used though, and some of the brands (like most of the Sculpeys) won't hold up well when they're thin like this, so I'd maybe put them on the top of a box or other lid, or on the front of a vase or pencil holder can, etc., where they wouldn't get stressed much and would be kind of protected. 

Just buying a simple small unfinished pasteboard or wood box from Michaels, for example, would work well.  Just paint it, or decoupage, etc., then glue the flower to the top or front.  Would look awesome.

Don't be so hard on yourself, how long have you been working with clay? I've been at it for almost 5 years and I still create quite a bit of scrap!
