Sunflower wall decor

I recently moved into a new place, and now I am making some decor items for my own home. This is one of them, Sunflower wall decor. I made it in metallic finish to match the color of walls and other furniture in the particular room but it will also look great in their natural sunflower yellow and green.
I used my homemade cold porcelain clay for flowers and Leaves, You can use other clay too. Cold porcelain shrinks after drying so if you are using it, make sure to make flowers and leaves first and let them dry. Measure them after drying and then cut the cardboard for frame accordingly. You can also make box frame but this way it gets more stronger and you will get place to stick the double sided tape.
You can also use flat cardboard panels instead of frames. If using normal modelling clay then you can make flower directly to the cardboard panel as that clay doesn’t shrinks much.

Materials used: Homemade cold porcelain clay, Real leaf, Cardboard, homemade petal cutter, POP(Plaster of paris), Glue, Painters tape, Acrylic Paints(Black,metallic golden), Double sided tape.

Here is a video tutorial

Here is Recipe for Homemade cold porcelain clay

Here is a tutorial to make Petal cutters at home

I am using real leaf to make leaf impression

This is same old method, roll the clay put the leaf on it and roll again so that you will get all the leaf vein impressions on clay. Cut the leaf shape using cutter.

Take off the leaf and you will get this beautiful leaf impression.
You will need two of them, Let them dry in flat position. Keep flipping them upside down while drying so they will get dry evenly which prevents cracks.
Cut a round shape using cookie cutter or any round object.
This is homemade petal cutter, I have given video link above to check how to make them really easily.
Cut the petals
Texture them like this
Apply some glue on clay round and stick the petals as shown
Make a second layer of Petals
shape some clay like this
Stick it at the center of flower
Make texture like this
You will need two flowers
This is how they look after drying, It took me 2 days to dry them.
These are the leaves after drying
Measure the flowers and leaves and cut the cardboard to make frames accordingly
These are my measurements, you dont need to take same measurements as your flower size wont be same as mine.
You will need three pieces to make 1 frame
This is for leaves
Stick 3 pieces of cardboard to make a frame.
Line the open edges of cardboard frame using painters tape, you can also cover it sticking paper…even newspaper works great.
This the texture paste. You can use readymade or you can make my homemade version, I mix POP(Plaster of paris and glue in same quantity)
Apply the paste on all frames
Make some light texture using knife
Stick the sunflower directly over it
Do the same with leaf
After drying
Paint it with acrylic black
Highlight it using metallic golden
Do the same with all
Stick double sided tape on the backside.
And this beautiful Sunflower wall decor is ready

  11. Traditionally, month after month of the year features a gemstone linked to it.
    These networks connect LANs together and therefore connect employees as though these folks were all
    on the same site. If you have confidential information, like
    taxation assessments (containing social security numbers),
    copies of driver’s licenses, or possibly corporate data for example fiscal reports, marketing strategies or
    lists of important clients, then it makes sense lock and hide such data with software for example Folder Lock Lite.

    or 160GB Apple TV hard disk drive as opposed to leaving

    purchase from you for your slightly outdated hunk
