How to Make Ceramic Flowers
Ceramic flower making takes a bit of time and practice. I developed the skill at Coalport China Museum using ancient techniques of bone china flower making. Bone china is a very sticky clay so you use oil such as sunflower oil on your fingers to stop it sticking. It is very soft and can only be sculpted into tiny or palm of the hand size flowers.
You can make flowers out of any clay with a bit of practice. I believe I could teach anyone to make clay flowers. Below are some ‘how to’ guides and videos showing you how to make ceramic flowers using clay. The techniques will work with any clay so can be tried using the air drying clay or other clays you may wish to work with.
