Take a lump of clay and make it into whatever you wish. Ensure that it stands stable.
Make patterns in the clay using different clay tools.
Make small holes in the clay and insert the dried flowers.
Let the clay dry completely. You can then paint the vases if you like. Remove the dried flowers first.
Mix Hobbylack to get the shades that you want. We’ve painted a darker shade at the bottom and slightly lighter brushstrokes on top so that the pattern in the clay comes through better.
You can varnish the vases using Oceanlack if you want extra protection.
Create your own small cute holder for dried plants and flowers. The air-drying clay is pliable and ceramic-like to work with and hardens by itself after a few days. The contrast between the stubby little clay vase and the dried stems in a row is beautiful in its simplicity.
