Forcing spring flowers

Zuda Gay's polymer sculpted flowers

Zuda Gay’s layered polymer flowers are about as close to spring as I’m able to get. Her sculpted cane slices and juicy colors are right on target.

Dahlias and sunflowers are her specialty and you can see an entire polymer garden on her Flickr pages.

Zuda shares a quick tutorial on her site if, like me, you can’t wait for spring. We seem to have brought the Ohio snow with us to Arizona.

      What a gorgeous garden Zuda has created! Her lovely flowers makes me yearn for spring instead of Arizona snow.
      Zuda: Thanks for the tute!

          OMG makes that flower class that Joann’s wants me to teach look like kindergarten!

            I looked at her flickr pages and I think it’s safe to say she likes flowers. It makes me want spring to be here. Her work is beautifully detailed with colors that would inspire nature.

              Checked out Zuda’s flickr site. Really great flowers and some with vintage buttons for centers. Great idea!
