My husband and I are celebrating 20 years of marriage this month, in an intimate family and friends gathering.
As a special souvenir to my guests I wanted to give each of them a small flower bouquet made of my favorite flowers.
Surprisingly I couldn't find any of them in stock!
Some were out of season, and some needed to be pre-ordered 6 month ahead!
So, I set out to create my flowers from polymer clay, but... what do I know about creating an Anemone? Peony? Or polymer clay Rose?
I started searching online, but couldn't find any comprehensive guidance.
An Idea popped in my head. I will call my good friend Sharon Peled, one of the top cake decorating artists in Israel and a sugar flower expert; for guidance.
Sharon suggested: "let's create the flowers from sugar-paste…"
"OK" I said, "that's an option, but, how about creating them from polymer clay? Is that even a possibility? Clearly they would be much more durable & usable!"
Sharon and I gathered our dual expertise, experience and knowledge in a variety of materials, while mixing techniques and crafts specialties;
After endless days and nights of research and trials, (and many successes!), we realized that we created a full scale one and only - Polymer Clay Flower Encyclopedia!
