Small size gum ball container
Step 1: Make a rose following the instructions at: http://nacekomie.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=2528&start=119
Don't paint the stem or add the leaves yet!
Step 2: Shape the wire into a rose stem shape. To add glitter to your rose, carefully take out the ink tube of your red sparkle pen. Then use a pin to pull out ink from the top of the tube and apply to the rose.
I also made a few extra petals to show the petals that had fallen off of the rose already.
Step 3: Paint the stem with green paint.
Add glitter (sparkle pen).
Step 4: Time to make leaves! Use the green polymer clay to mold leaves. Don't forget to add veins with a pin and shape them.
Step 5: Attach leaves!
At this point I decided my leaves were too bright a green and stuck 'em in the oven again at higher temperature, watching carefully so it wouldn't completely burn. This is optional.
Step 6: Repaint and reglitter any spots that might have rubbed off. Let dry.
Part 2: The Dome
or a small plastic gum ball machine container (which is what I used). Make sure you get the small size. Mine came with a ring.
You can use gold bead caps or other jewelry findings to decorate. I went a bead cap to fit on the top. Gather your rose and the petals.
For a base you can paint the cap gold, flip over the cap to make a perfect fitting base. I used a pin to make a hole in the center of the cap through which to stick the rose stem. Then glue the rose and the petals to the cap and voila! :)
This is what I mean when I said poke a hole in the cap and use it to stick the rose's stem through. It helps stabilize the rose and keeps it steady while drying.
Here's a gallery of pictures of my cutesy little rose! :)
