I sat down and mixed up some red clay for making miniature strawberries. (No canes this time, since they were gonna be whole) Notice I said were! Yeah for some insane reason as I was using my pasta machine to mix and condition the red, I thought....hmmm I need long stemmed roses for Valentines Day. So I set about looking on my desk for my tiny Kemper cutter....Dang it, can't find nothin'!!! It really is time for a good desk cleaning again! But anyways...what do my eyeballs spy amidst all the creative rubble...an eyelet...yep like in shoes or corsets or scrapbooking! Hmm I wonder....yep it works...kinda hard to hold though...so I grab my tacky wax and put a blob onto the end of a new sucker stick and press the eyelet onto it. Instant tiny circle cutter...how tiny you ask...1/8 of an inch across!!!!! So dipping my new miniature petal cutter into cornstarch I proceeded to cut out a bazillion tiny circles. And then just working like I normally do, albeit with WAAAAAAAAAY less petals (only about 5 as opposed to my normal 8 to 10) I made a rose. The stem is 28 guage beading wire. They are gonna end up being about 1/4inch across...so that makes them about 3inch in full scale. I'm quite pleased with them actually! I am planning to give it a coat of green paint and leaves after the roses have been baked! So what do you think?
