New Clay Creations - Brooch, Card, Floral Presentations

Promised to keep posted about the outcome of the miniature creation workshop :  our team did not get the team winner but I was one of the two individual winners.    
During the final judgement, our mentor brought along two of her friends who are also experts in the miniature creations.    Their work were at professional level, we were very impressed how real and how refined that these 1/12 scale products can be done so nicely!   Honestly,   we beginners will have a long way to go!

You can navigate one of their site to see how good the experts can really deliver!  It is awesome!

Back to the real world,  I have decided to make some more craft with my left over clay I bought from these miniature workshops.

I made a brooch (to match my new dress, with the color selections of pink, yellow and peach).

Then, another card painting with Orchids on them.    This is not really 1/12 scale but in the size of a 2.5" x 3" card size.

Finally,  I made a slightly bigger floral presentation of about 5" tall.   As I ran out of Grace Clay,  I could only use some left over  Staedtler Modelling Clay, so the flowers were really much bigger.    What I desired to present was  inspired by the clay work,  that we could actually create more things that could be of practical use, not only 1/12 size type by collectors eg. the brooch you can design to match your outfit / theme  and the floral arrangement of Ikebana Style that could be kept in small version and will last and the flowers will not fade or died. 

I had always wanted to make some real flowers arrangement of Ikebana Style,   I think I would be able to make more of these that can be kept (as they are small & can last) and more varieties.    Soon I can expand my collections.

This is fun and inspiring!
