DIY Realistic Roses Out Of Clay | Beginner


Welcome back to DIY No Need To Cry with Ivelisse. Hi, my crafty family, this weeks video is
going to be these beautiful realistic roses I’ve been practicing. I’ll be using them for another project I’m
working on. I did them pretty much the same way as I did
the other ones except I thinned out the clay more. They’re not perfect but there’re a good start. DIY Realistic Roses Out Clay for Beginners
from a beginner Please turn on those notification bells so
you can get notified when I upload a video. Let’s get started. I’ll be using a glass I got out of a frame,
a piece of crafting foam under it so it doesn’t slide, a plastic rolling pin an x-acto knife
and air dry modeling clay. You want to tint the clay whatever color you
want before you start. When choosing a color take into consideration
that the end result will be way lighter than the actual paint color. I’m using this candy pink by Apple Barrel. A drop or two will do. You want to blend it all together the best
you can before you start rolling it out to complete the blending… check it out, I actually
have gloves on guys. Take your gloves off if you are wearing some
or wash your hands before the next part. You don’t want the dry paint flakes to stick
to the clay. Now start rolling and folding until the color
is fully blended. Take a small piece of the clay and roll in
into a ball, put it on the glass and roll one side to create a teardrop shape, like
a Hershey’s Kiss. I used a plastic egg to cut the petals out
but you use whatever you have. Roll out the clay and cut the first petal
out. If the clay sticks to the glass just use the
x-acto knife to lift one side. I just placed it in the palm of my hand and
flattened it until it was pretty thin. That’s all I did to form the petal. Wrap the first petal slightly higher than
the tip of the teardrop as you see here. Then pulling towards the center of the bottom
rip the excess clay off and smooth it out. Using the leftover piece I created another
petal making sure to thin out the edges. Wrap it around to cover the other half of
the teardrop, take the excess clay off and smooth it out. Now continue to do this to form the middle
of the rose. I did two pedals at a time as I had seen in
another video to see if it made a difference. I found this method looked good but was a
little harder to place then doing one pedal at a time. You don’t have to do this, I was in my zone
again and forgot I was recording lol! At this point I started to slightly pull the
tops of the petals outward. I just continued to do the same thing until
I got to the size I wanted. I was measuring to see if it was the same
hight as the other rose. As I’ll be using these for a project. Be mindful of where you put your fingers when
handling the clay, you don’t want to flatten any of it by mistake. That was a good example of how I placed these
petals, I saw that it was too small so I pulled it up to make it bigger. I had it to low for this part. Me being picky Once you’ve placed the last petal, give
it the final touches before you put it aside to dry. I let my dry overnight. You can leave it as is or add paint to the
edges as I did. Using a tiny pouncer brush with the tiniest
amount of paint, paint the edges. I also dabbed the excess paint off of the
brush. I barely apply any pressure when adding the
paint. You can always add more but you can’t take
it off once it’s on so go real easy when you’re adding the paint. And here they are all done I know they’re
not perfect but I hope this was helpful to those of you who want to try. To make the smaller ones, just don’t add
as many petals and the very tiny ones are the teardrops by themselves. You might not get it right the first few times
but please don’t get discouraged. I’ve been practicing these since the last
roses I made which was a month ago so keep practicing and you’ll get it. I’m very happy with the way these came out,
I’ll probably add some green leaves to finish them off. As you can see I also added a little bit of
holo glitter glue… I just couldn’t help myself. I can’t wait to show you what I’ll be
making with them and all the other stuff I’m working on. You guys have me hard at work with all the
wonderful requests. I hope you give these a try and as always,
have fun be creative and make a mess! Thanks for watching! If you like this video, please don’t forget
