The challenge of the Philippine Polymer Clay Guild for the month of May was ti create something new using polymer clay flowers. I’ve been making a lot of floral themed pieces, mostly daisies or simple flowers with 5 petals and I didn’t know what to do for this challenge. Then one day, while I was cleaning my craft room, I found a tutorial about “Orchid Pin or Pendant” that I bought from Ms. Penni Jo Couch during the 2013 Lone Star retreat. The tutorial was simple, well written and well illustrated.
This is my “Rhoda Orchid.” I named it after my mom who loves and grows orchids back in the Philippines. There are several varieties of orchids but the color combination that I used in making this one are probably non-existent. It’s more of like a fantasy orchid, if you could call it that.
Oh, did I mention that it is National Clay Week? Yes it is!
