Have I ever mentioned I want to take up sculpture? No, I mean it, I really do. I want to take a real class someday to study the art form, it intrigues and inspires me to no end. So as I was aimlessly browsing the aisles of the craft store the other day (a frequent habit) I came across some moldable stone clay and thought, hey why not give it a try – I’m adventurous like that with $10 to burn.
What started out as an experiment ended up as something I’m rather proud of, this pretty three dimensional clay petal vase that combines two loves of mine: white ceramic sculptural thingies and very big blooms.
No I didn’t sculpt the vase (ha! I wish!) that was a purchase from Michaels, but I did sculpt the large bloom mounted on the front out of the white stone clay with my very own fingers. I’ll show you how.
First, grab yourself a pretty vase or vessel and some stone clay at a craft store. I used the Premier version and was happy to find it’s very soft and silky to the touch. Dare I say, sensual? Hmm, maybe too strong a word, but it’s a really soft texture to work with.
