A little rose themed box I made for my Grandmother’s 91st birthday. It’s made entirely out of polymer clay; I recently became enamoured of the marbling effects you can achieve by mixing colours of your choice together.
My Grandma lived in Italy for some time, and had a property called “Villa Rosa”, which naturally had roses growing everywhere. I had this in mind while making this box.
I didn’t have time to finesse it too much, as I made it in a day, but was pretty pleased with the end result.
A few technical notes: One issue I have with using polymer clay to build something, is that it’s far to flexible/fragile when thin to maintain a strong structure. I’m going to investigate ways to strengthen thin pieces, or create an inner structure for stability.
