1  Re: Hawaiian Flowers of Clay in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rjcbarut on: March 30, 2005 10:15:07 AM
Hi Diane,

Thank you for the information.  Yes, Hearty clay will dry out fast whiich is why you will need to cover or seal any unused clay while you are working, especially if you are working in an air-conditioned environment. 

Since each petal is made one at a time, I place them under a shopping bag or in a tupperware container after each is done.  Then when I have completed  all 5 petals for one flower, I bring them out and put them together.  I, too, bought a package of Hearty Clay without realizing that it had a small opening in it.  When I got home the side with the opening was hard but I was able to go back and exhange it.

I like the Hearty Clay because I can thiin it to paper consistency and it doesn't dry hard, and heavy like Fimo. Making it very realistic to a flower.   It is also pretty hardy, you can drop the flower or tap it on a desk and it won't break.  Now slamming and purposely smashing it is another thing.  But why would you want to do that, right? 

I only use white and airbrush the color into the flowers.  There is no glue used on my hair picks but I use glue for the hair clips.  The flowers on the mini hair clips I posted last night are approximately 2" in diameter, the larger ones that are currently on my site are approx. 3" in diameter. 

Right now I am only making Plumerias but I have a friend that is very good at this and can make other types of flowers.  She makes the pretties lillies and  I wiill adding her flowers to my site, too.

In the future, I would like to make roses but right now I will concentrate on flowers from Hawaii. Mahalo always, for the kind comments.

Oh but I do ship to Canada and outside of the U.S. by request - please email me.  In fact, I just finished packing  some flowers that are being shipped to one of our Craftster members in Scotland..

If you feel Springy now, here is a picture of mini plumeria hair clips that were just finished tonight:

I'm donating 25 of these to May's subscription of The Sampler AND will also have them available through my site.  Gosh, I hope I don't get banned for my comments.  Please forgive me if I'm doing anything wrong.

Thank you kindly, again, for the positive comments.   After a year of selling other people's crafts, it's nice to finally have something of my own to offer.

Hee, Hee.  Silly Nilly  Grin

Okay here is a picture that  hubby took of me wearing the light pink plumeria.  Sorry it's a bit dark and yeah, I know I'm going to regret plastering my face in cybespace!  But it will at least give you an idea and maybe you'll visit my site (shameless promotion).  Or you can use it to throw darts at  Tongue

Hi everybody,

Thank you so much again, for the positive comments.  Here are more plumeria flowers that I created - white, light pink, and dark pink.  These are hairpicks and the light pink is my favorite.  In ancient Hawaii, there were no rings.  A women's status would be based on which side of her head she was wearing a flower.  Right for available, Left for unavailable.
