Here is my first attempt at adding a stem and leaves to my polymer clay roses. I made my first rose when I was a teenager from my brother’s Play-doh.
The flowers were made from polymer clay that was leftover from previous projects. The stems are made from floral wire and coated with polymer clay. Jewelry wire was other option, but it is a lot more expensive than floral wire.
What I learned from the first set was: How to make the leaves better and how to better place them in the oven to reduce damaging the stems.
