Premo Distressed Mod Flower Bouquet

Starting at $2.79

This project was inspired from an original mixed media collage I made several years ago.  This bouquet would look lovely on your fireplace mantle in the Spring to add a pop of color to the room.  Tips:  Safety glasses and gloves are recommended when using dark annealed steel wire.

    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.
Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Roll clay into balls. Use the Sculpey Acrylic Roller and roll the Premo Wasabi color and Spanish Olive color clays flat. Using the Sculpey Tear Drop Metal Cutters, cut shapes in different sizes to make leaves. Use the rubber stamp flower pieces to make patterns on the leaves.
Use the Sculpey Premo colors Orange, Cadmium Yellow Hue, Sunshine, Purple and Sculpey Premo Accents colors Magenta Pearl and Sunset Pearl to make the flowers. Press the rolled balls with your fingers to make a circle shape. Use rubber stamps with flower design and press rubber stamp into the clay. Use the smallest circle of the Sculpey Circle Metal Cutters and punch into center of the stamped flower. Use the end of one of the Sculpey Etch n’ Pearl tools and pierce a hole through the small circles of clay. Repeat as necessary for each of the flowers in the different colors. Also at this time roll out a flat piece of of the Premo Accents Sunset Pearl color clay and carve out a large heart shape. Stamp with flower rubber stamps around the edges and stamp sentiment in the center of the heart with alphabet rubber stamps. Take each of the clay stamped flowers and pinch lightly to form the flowers to give them depth.
Bake all clay flower, leaves and heart pieces.
Use a small stencil brush and apply the Metallic Lustre wax to each of the flowers, leaves and heart.
Use a small paint brush and apply black acrylic paint over the Metallic Lustre wax on all of the pieces. Moisten a paper towel and wipe of some of the black acrylic paint on each piece. Repeat as necessary to achieve the desired distressed finish. Allow to dry and buff entire piece with a paper towel or soft cloth.
Seal all the finished flowers with Sculpey Gloss Glaze. Use two coats!
Cut long pieces of 16 gauge annealed steel wire with heavy duty wire cutters. Cut smaller pieces of 19 gauge annealed steel wire with wire cutters. Cut enough pieces for the number of flowers you want.
Use round-nose pliers to wrap wire and attach to clay flowers. Use your hands and make abstract flower shapes with the 16 gauge wire. Attach to flowers with 19 gauge wire and wrap excess around stem of flower.
Use Crop-A-Dile tool and punch hole in each of the leaves. Use smaller pieces of the 19 gauge wire and attach to stems.
Arrange all the flowers together. Use Washi tape and wrap all the wire stems together.
You can use a regular vase or upcycle a plain vase or jar with washi paper and Mod Podge! Cut ribbon with scissors and poke through holes on the leaves. Attach leaves with ribbon to the neck of the bottle.
