How to make mini faux porcelain roses

Often I make lots of bits and pieces but never really show you how to make them, but I have been asked lots of times how I made my mini porcelain roses, so here you are in true panoramic vision! This video by Christie Hund gave me the idea, so technically it is not completely my idea, but because I absolutely adore UTEE in all forms, and because I love making faux porcelain flowers -technique originally by Sherry Cheever , I thought why not combine the two!So my first video in over 2 years.. (what happened to the time?) is now up on youtube. The technique uses Tim's Tattered Pine Cone die, and one thing I didn't mention on the video is the paper I used is Ranger's Core'dinations. It does work with other papers, but I would not use too thin a paper as the roses don't come out quite so well.



I do hope you have time to experiment with them.. they are very very addictive! I am off later today to take a workshop with Tim Holtz and Dyan Reaveley, and to go shopping at Stitches for you...getting excited... lots of new goodies, and time to see long standing friends :))
Have a very creative weekend.

Thanks for the tutorial Jennie, so much easier to glaze this way than having to faff about (technical term) getting out the MeltPot.
