Miniature Flower Making Tutorial
1/12th scale Apple Blossoms
Our flower is really taking shape now but we need to make some leaves.
You will need your ball stylus, tacky glue, a leaf punch & some green clay.
A magnifying lamp will be helpful if you find it difficult to see tiny things well.
Flatten out a ball of the green clay like you did with the pink clay.
Make it as thin as possible.
Be sure it is dusted with cornstarch so it wont stick to the punch.
Pictured are two different leaf punches, either one
will work fine or you can use a large teardrop punch (my favorite, but I couldn’t find it).
It will easier to remove the clay this way.
Let it fall to the table below.
If you are going to be away from your work for a bit, you can cover
the cutouts with a piece of lightly moistened plastic wrap.
Next we will paint the details on our flower while the leaves set up a bit.
A simple coated paper plate is the perfect palette, and disposable!
I used burgundy, rose, beige, yellow, brown & three different shades of green.
A light, medium and dark hue. These are just everyday normal bottle acrylics.
