It is a good idea to mold the rose flower, a rose from clay may look exactly as a natural flower. Also,
I like the molded roses because it is a gift that keeps on giving.
You will need the following materials:
Material for molding: self-hardening polymer clay, cold porcelain etc;
Wire for stems (diameter 1-2 mm) and wire for fixing the leaves (diameter of the section 0.5-0.7 mm);
A set of stacks for modeling;
Special relief mold "sheet";
Manicure scissors with thin sharpened blades;
Acrylic or oil paints;
Brushes; PVA glue or silicone glue.
To make a single rose, you will need 2 balls, of 4 cm and 3 cm in diameter, rolled from the molding mass. A smaller ball should be tinted in green color or just use a colored mass for it.
Mold a thin layer of green mass on the wire and leave to harden. Then roll a ball of white color with a diameter of 2.5 cm, put it on the stem (previously prepared wire) and also leave it to harden. Roll a ball with a diameter of 1.5 cm from the mass of white and, and make a long petal from the ball. Glue the petal and stick it to the ball-like base. Mold the balls of 1 cm in diameter from remaining molding mass. Mold the petals of the balls, form the waves of the edges and give them the bend with hands. Take a stack with a large ball and level the petal surface, the make a greater band. Form the petals one by one.
Glue the petals and stick them to a bud-billet.
Roll a ball of 2 cm from the green mass and form a drop of 4 cm. Cut this drop on 5 pieces with manicure scissors. Roll each part of drop with a stack and form the sepals, sepals should be as thin as possible. Glue the sepals and put it on stem gently. Paint the roses using the "dry brush" method, making the paint boundaries. Both acrylic and oil paint is good for it. Form the workpieces of leaves and make a relief on each. Lay the thin wire along the leave and form a streak. Tint the leaves with the darker color.
Form the twig from leaves and cover each twig with the green mass. Stick each twig to a stem, and
level the boundaries with a stack.
