ONE TUTORIAL A DAY FOR 31 DAYS – DAY 16 OF MY JOURNEY – LOTUS FLOWER

DSC_0303

I could say I was saved by a flower. I have been working almost all day today, but the result was not what I was expecting. And I had no plan B. But then I said to myself, I could try to choose a flower that I like and try my hand at it. I am more inspired when it comes to making polymer clay flowers. That’s how I came with the idea of the lotus flower.

Materials and tools used: white Fimo Professional Polymer Clay, a pasta machine, pastel colors, round cutter, petal cutter and liquid Fimo.

I have prepared the polymer clay and rolled it through the pasta machine. I have cut a round shape.

Then I have started cutting the petals.

After the first raw of petals, I have cut the same shape, but reduced its size a little bit (to have smaller petals for the second raw).

I have made a flower bud for the center of the flower.

I have painted the round base and the petals with a mixture of blue and violet pastels.

Using Liquid Fimo I have arranged the first raw and then the second raw.

I have cut a rectangle of polymer clay and then colored it with yellow and blue and violet pastels.

I have cut thin stamens and I have painted them all around.

I have put it in the oven in a silicone mold (to shape the flower).

I haven’t decided yet what to do with it. I could make a statement brooch, put it on a box or just keep as it as decoration.

      2. Dear Lynda, I loved your article about the lotus flower. Thank you for the recommendation. I was very impressed by your artistic talents: I loved the beaded statement necklace, the pottery and I was amazed to see that you are painting as well. I admire you very much for your capacity to create using so many media. I am very happy to meet you!

  2. Amazing work! Love it!

    1. Thank you, Lucy! I am very glad you liked it!

  3. Your creativity is awesome… One of these every day!

    Congratulations and have a great day!

    1. Thank you very much! In fact one day turned into two or even three, but I had to accept the fact that inspiration is not something you can control. The more I tried to control the process, the less satisfied I was with the results. And I decided to go for quality, not quantity. Yet, the most interesting part in this journey, is that I always have in mind the fact that I have taken upon me to do this and in the same time I am letting go of expectations and letting creativity come to me at the right moment. I wanted to add that I loved your realistic paintings and that I was amazed by the details and the feelings you managed to convey through your characters. Most of all I loved the joy from this girl’s eyes. http://musamolona.com/2015/04/20/la-nina-que-te-desea-que-pases-un-buen-dia-the-girl-who-wishes-you-all-the-best-for-today/ Wonderful work!

      1. Thank you very much, really!

        Have a wonderful day.

      2. A wonderful day to you too! Best wishes! Mihaela
