Some times we just need a field trip to open our minds and creative ideas. And this tutorial is giving me a perfect excuse to take a walk and pick a few weeds. LOL!
I love the textures that nature offers and am often inspired by them so when I found this tutorial by Russian artist Julia Titova I just had to share.
Now let me back up and say, I believe that to be the artist’s name. Since the entire blog is in Russian and the site, the best I can tel,l is a forum of artists in the region I can’t be sure. So hopefully I have given the proper credit.
The best I can tell (using google translate) is that she is using air dry clay to make the relief of the flowers both fresh and dried and makes the pendants reinforcing it with resin. You could also use polymer clay or silicone mold making kits for a more stable longer lasting mold.
And finally she adds a layer of resin to offer a tremendous depth to the piece. My favorite is ProTec Powder Paint.
For me this is just another excuse to play with nature and of course alcohol inks.
Now for the shameless promotion. Looking for some fun supplies to help you with this or other crafting projects? Be sure to check out my shop.
