So I know it's pretty weird to have a drawn tutorial of an artisan craft. And I did spend a ridiiiiculous amount of time on it haha.
Out of the 15 pieces I need for my art portfolio, there are four requirements, one of which is a "sequence of events" such as tying a shoelace. I tried to think of something more original, so here's what I got!
This is actually how I make my roses, and I hope you find it useful! Please feel free to ask me any questions.
Edit: Since I did not add all this info on the tutorial, I'll add it here. I use Premo! Sculpey for almost all of my work, and the paintbrush at the end is for the glaze or varnish to strengthen the clay and make it shine! I also usually cut a little off the end before I bake so it stands straight, then cut off the rest after I bake so it doesn't mess up the shape of the rose.
