sometimes i try out ideas which i build in my head… and somehow they don’t look how i wanted them to :)
anyhow this one didn’t go as planed but looks nice as well.
i wanted to make a bowl out of air dry clay and press a fern into the clay. well this did work, but i didn’t think of the fact, that once it was dry i would see the fern on the outside anymore. so if you want to try out this bowl, you might want to place your fern “print” on the inside of your bowl. :)
this is how you do it:
press the fern onto the flattened clay
put something round onto the clay and cut it out
put your clay circle into the bowl and form a nice seam, let it dry for a day
you can smooth the seam with a nail file like i did here
finished, i use it for tiny objects i tend to lose
i just can’t get enough of fern. i think baby fern plants look like the home of tiny fairies, when the roll out the look so magical. even though it’s “just” a green plant i think it might be one of my favourites!
