Polymer clay pion shaped rose - DIY step by step tutorial

Materials Needed for polymer clay pion shaped rose:

  • Polymer clay in various colors (for petals, center, and leaves)
  • Clay sculpting tools
  • Flower petal cutters or templates
  • Rolling pin
  • Baking tray and oven
  • Varnish or glaze (optional)

Step 1: Conditioning and Shaping the Clay Begin by conditioning the polymer clay, kneading it until it’s soft and pliable. Roll out the clay to a uniform thickness using a rolling pin. Choose the colors you want to use for the petals, center, and leaves.

Step 2: Shaping the Petals Using flower petal cutters or templates, cut out petal shapes from the colored clay. Use clay sculpting tools to add texture and details, such as veins and ruffled edges, to the petals. Repeat this process to create multiple petals in different sizes.

Step 3: Creating the Center Form a small ball or cylinder shape using a contrasting color of clay for the center of the rose. Use your fingers or tools to shape and texture the center, adding depth and realism.

Step 4: Assembling the Rose Start by attaching the smallest petals around the center, slightly overlapping them to create a bud-like appearance. Gradually add larger petals, layering them and positioning them in a spiral pattern. Gently press and blend the clay together to secure the petals.

Step 5: Adding Leaves Roll out green clay and cut out leaf shapes using leaf cutters or templates. Attach the leaves to the stem or base of the rose, positioning them as desired. Use clay tools to create veins and texture on the leaves.

Step 6: Baking and Finishing Carefully transfer the rose onto a baking tray and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for baking. Once the clay has cooled, you can add a layer of varnish or glaze to enhance the shine and protect the finish.

Congratulations! You have successfully created a beautiful polymer clay pion shaped rose. This versatile flower can be used in various craft projects, including jewelry, home decor, and floral arrangements. Experiment with different colors and sizes to create your own unique rose designs. Enjoy the process of working with polymer clay and let your creativity bloom!

At first I will show you how to make a simple rainbow cane. Use the purple clay to form a generous thin sheet in a rectangular shape.

Do the same with the other polymer clay colors and place the sheets one on top of the other in the order of a rainbow, as you can see in the image above. You can use white polymer clay also to place between the colored sheets. This way the rainbow effect can be more intense.

Use the clay slicer to cut through the colored bulk that you have built sheet by sheet so you will get some rectangular sheets that contain all your colors. Place them one next to another over the purple sheet.

Step 2

– Polymer clay : white, fuchsia, beige, black, wasabi green, lilac.
– Tools: clay roller, clay slicer, clay knife, mini heart cutter.
– Other supplies: photo frame, toothpick, clay fast dry glue.

The flowers

Divide the white clay it into 5 parts. Then roll each part to small spheres which will make the petals. The same way you will form the rest of the flowers with different colors and sizes.

The snail and the butterfly

Now, for the snail shell use the lilac clay, shape it as a long cone and roll it.
For the head and body use beige clay. Make a flat oval shape out of white clay and a flat triangle out of lilac clay for the wings of the butterfly which has the same body and head as the snail. After assembling the parts together attach them to the large flowers.

The Details

Use the roller to make a flat thin sheets from the fuchsia clay, then cut little squares. Do the same way with the white clay but this time just to cut little hearts that you will attach together on the snail shell and on the wings of the butterfly.

You can form the eyes from white and black balls and put them on the faces.
For the mouth use a toothpick and make a hole.
Use wasabi green clay to create little leaves and curls to apply on or between the petals.

Use pieces of wire steel to create the feeler and fix them with bake & bond.
At the top of each feeler apply a fuchsia ball.

For the letters form a thin rope from fuchsia clay and cut the necessary pieces to join for the message.

At last, bake the pieces and use the clear fast dry glue to assemble the frame.
