Master the flower vase yourself step by step
Step 1: First, sculpt three thin rolls of Polymer Clay in different tone colors. After that, start spinning and braiding them until you get an overflowing effect. Now you should have a colorful ball in front of you. Now roll them out very thin.

In this way you will transform the defect into a great effect. Spend more time and have the patience to create even gentler and pleasant nuances. The beauty of the flower vase depends on that.
Step 3: After covering all sides of the glass with modeling clay, press the ends inward towards the edge of the glass. Cut off the unnecessary clay mass with the cardboard knife. Make sure that no bumps have formed. And if they do exist, gently push them aside until you get a nice and even shape.

Normally baking does not take more than 20 to 25 minutes. Every now and then, take a look in the oven as you go through this step.
Step 5: The last step is the easiest, and the vase should be decorated. After the flower vase is ready baked and cooled, you can add some beautiful flowers and z.
