Susan Holloway- A rose by any other name...

I got this from my friend Susan this week. It is a corsage and it is large, it weighs almost nothing, it is made from Cloud Clay from Amaco.


First thing I did was put it up to my nose, I know, must have been reflexes.



It is papery and thin, but very durable.


This clay is made for children.



What beautiful detail.


It is 4" in diameter and it weights less than a 1/2 of an ounce!!
Thank you Susan, I love it!!!
Well done you!



...and she sent Madi a handmade Llama, she loves it.
Susan likes Llamas she has an Etsy store Sonnallama

  2. I thought it was amazing Lynn. You can bend the petals and they bounce right back to shape. They feel almost papery in texture.
    The weight though, is what surprised me the most. For the size, it feels like a feather.

  3. Beeeeeeeutiful!!! Very interesting about the light weight clay. I have been looking for something to make faux cupcakes with...even tried canned foam. I may actually have to try this clay next. Thank you, Marie! **Happy Friday** Deb

  4. You could even make them around styrofoam which would make them even lighter.
    Oh how cute they would be Deb!

  8. i like the flexibility of the petals. i've just gone back for another look so i could imagine moving the petals around to change the rose.

    have you read 'the little prince' marie? this might be his beloved rose.

    you have the best friends.

    i happily admit that i am proud to be among them.

    happy weekend, marie.
