Lets Make Copic Flowers.

Wouldn’t it be fun to make some flowers to match your Copic markers or any other alcohol markers that you colour with?

I love the little resin flowers that you can buy but they can work out rather pricey. then there is the problem of finding the right colour.

So I decided I would make my own in the colours that I liked.

So I started with a multi pack of polymer clay, these packs are great starter packs to build up your colours and they are from Wholeport  20 colours for only $5.45

The white is important to have because you can lighten any colour with it just by needing it into another colour. You can also mix the colours together to achieve different shades.

I used this 3-Hole Chrysanthemum Mini Silicone Mould  only $1.99

All you do is soften the clay by rolling it in your hand and then press a pea sized amount into your flower mould.

All that I need to do now is bake them in the oven for 20 minutes and they will be good to go.

Yes this is such an awesome idea to make lots of these embellisments us self like this, and then we can always get it in the color we need, no matter what we want, and besides it´s also lots of fun to sit and make these things together with the grandkids too, when they´re around right? I know my girls just love to play with the clay here, when they´re around. And this looks really good even, so it´s all a win win situation then right?
Have a great day and lots of fun.
