Polymer Clay Flowers

Hi! Today I would like to share with you a project I
thoroughly enjoyed. I love to make flowers and these
were no exception.
The items I used today are:
Polymer Clay
Terri Sproul Pearl Mixers
Piercing Tool
Exacto Knife (to cut the clay)
Teflon Mat 
I started with soft clay and cut slices to form into petals.
I adhered the petals to a clay dot and pressed each petal
with a piercing tool into the clay dot center.

I also used the piercing tool to make veins in the petals.

 This flower below I used two
colors of clay with the darker color in the middle.
Then it was time to paint with some Terri Sproul Pearl Mixers.
I prepared my paint by mixing the mixers with water and binding powder.

I used a finer brush with this particular  flower as it as
easier to control the amount of paint.

 Now its time to bake following the instructions on the package.
Walla, I have three flower embellishments ready for my next project.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and
