Happy Easter

I've been playing with clay,

yesterday I watched a video on
Creating Dollhouse Miniatures blog  ,
showing how to make daffodils  with
cold porcelain.

I think that the techniques adapted well to polymer clay.

The basket, eggs and orange vase were
also made from polymer clay.

My daffodils are a bit oversized and not
super life-like.  I will call them decorative daffodils.

The cutter that I used for the petals
was meant for use with gum paste/fondant
for cake decorating.

I really enjoyed making the daffodils but I disliked
making the leaves and could not get them quite right.

I'm going to try making leaves with floral tape,
I need to buy some in light green, I only have dark green now.

The vase is a ceramic bead.

I had difficult time getting a nice ruffle
on the trumpets, this one is the best but
I  could not seem to repeat it.

The cute little bunny was a gift from
Maria of  Pretty Things Ireland blog . 

I think he enjoyed being part of the

I hope that your Easter is warm and sunny and that you have a wonderful day.

Thank you for visiting, Mary
