This was an experiment with a clay center.
I made a mold from a little button then put
dotties around it. I really like the look, but it may change..who knows?
I saw a photo of a pale pink poppy with a
deep, dark purple center.
I like this okay, but it didn't quite come out the way it was in my head.
I think I will give it another try soon.
I always make something up and then allow the customer to say yes or no
and offer any ideas of changes if it isn't quite what they want.
Seeing what a person wants doesn't always happen the first time around.
It came out a lot darker than I was planning and was darker than
she wanted. This one is on a flat base.
very please with the outcome. I made a bowl shaped base to build
the poppy on...ummm in. I like the way it cups the petals much better.
I was just playing with the end of a cane.
I love the satin covered button center!
