Polymer Clay Wreath with Flowers Earrings Tutorial

By on Saturday, July 02, 2016 3 Comments

Polymer clay artists are very creative.  I thought Russian artist, Anna Potsar of Studio March Hare's polymer clay wreath with flowers earrings tutorial was a fun design.  Very different.   The design is airy with touches of color from the flowers and leaves.

Really worth a peak to see how she cleverly constructed the leaf cane and the graduated colors of the flowers all without wasting material.  I like how she used a bottle as a mandrel for the wreath part.

The tutorial is in Russian so the page needs to be translated. Computer users : Use the Chrome browser, right click anywhere on the page and select "translate to English". Mobile device users : Download the Chrome app, add the URL. The app asks if you wish to translate.

  1. Those are sweet earrings! I'd wear them.

    For newbies to polymer clay the instructions can be a bit confusing. It's too bad they don't use similar words or phrases that are common in English for working with pc. Even the pictures can be a bit confusing.

    For her leaf cane she shows a pic of a large leaf and a small leaf. She's 'reduced the cane' by slowly making the large leaf smaller by pressing on each side slowly - compressing the larger cane without distorting it. There are plenty of videos on how to do that available online.

    For her beautiful little flowers she's obviously made a Skinner Blend to graduate the colours. Again - plenty of videos for that as well.

    The one word I really couldn't find a translation for was 'ostyvshimi '. From what I could see it might be something like a steel mandrel for shaping the wreath around. But then again - I'm not sure. I see she used a bottle.....

    Beautiful little earrings!!
