Feminine clay Rose photo frame

A month or so ago, I sat down and made a large tray of clay roses to have on hand for projects that I want to add embellishments onto. Photo frames always look nice to me with little roses in the corners. Adding the hand made roses lends such a personal touch to jazz up plain photo frames.


I found this antique frame at a tag sale last summer and it's been sitting and waiting for me to decide what to do with it. Sorry, I didn't take a before shot.


After sanding, priming and painting the frame, I added several of my hand made roses to one of the corners with E6000 and also a dab of hot glue. *E6000 takes a while to set up, so I use a little hot glue to hold items in place until the E6000 takes hold.


I used Sculpey clay for making the roses and then baked in the oven as directed on the package. Then I spray painted them with Rust-leum Heirloom White. They are almost the same color as the frame though just a little bit of difference in color to make them stand out a tiny bit.

Have you ever made clay roses?  This is the first time that I've used Sculpey clay, normally I use kiln-fired clay which is a lot more time consuming until you get the finished product. I have to admit, making these roses was a snap! They were fun and addicting to make. I can see more Sculpey clay projects in my future.

I've completed a lot of little projects lately, though with being busy with getting things done for my booth at the Antique Mall, I've not had a lot of time for posting. I hope to add a few more of my completed projects soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by
I truly appreciate your visits 


From the Heart,

  5. Your clay roses are super cute :-) Have you ever dipped silk roses/flowers in plaster of paris and used those? Oh my gosh--- if you haven't, you should give it a try, they look so old world once they've set up.
    big hugs,

  6. Your frame transformation came out lovely.
    Thanks for that tip about using hot glue to hold things in place until the E6000 sets up. I never would have thought of that. I just stand there, holding it! ~~insert rolled eyes~~

  7. Valentine’s Day is a special day for every lover. Also known as Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, it is a traditional holiday honoring St Valentine or Valentinus, a Roman priest. The saint was martyred about AD 269 and buried on the Via Flaminia. So Valentine’s Day is celebrated as a tribute to him on February 14 each year. Lovers all over exchange gifts on this day. But Valentine’s Day is not just for the romantic partner; you can also give Valentine’s Day gifts to your sister, mother, father, daughter or son as a show of love. But of course, these will be general gifts and not romantic ones. Let us take a look at the history of Valentine’s Day and the Valentine Week.
