We use a premium air-drying clay that is soft, supple, easy to manipulate and dries a lovely light grey colour with a smooth surface making it a joy to paint on.
We've tested every air-dry clay we could get our fingers into, and this clay is hands down the best.
If stored unopened in the sealed bag the clay will last 3 - 6 months.
Our clay is made in Stoke, UK.
Follow the step by step instructions in the flower vase guide to create your vases, or if you prefer, follow along with the video tutorial.
You’ll be using the double pinch pot method which is one of the fundamental vase making techniques. It involves creating two pinch pots, combining and blending them together and then puncturing the cavity to form the hole, after which you can gradually pull out the neck of the vase.
There is also plenty of inspiration on our Instagram to keep your hands busy.
Once you’ve sculpted the basic form of the vase you can start to add finer details and build upon the surface to create unique designs. This is where you should let your creativity take over! Take inspiration from your home, life and surroundings to add designs that uniquely represent you.
One great tip to carve in very fine details is to wait until the clay surface is ‘leather hard’ after 12 hours. You’ll be able to create the cleanest lines and marks at this stage in the drying cycle.
As part of the guide Bloom & Wild have included some tips for positioning your dried flower stems in the best possible way to take advantage of their colours, textures and natural charm.
There’s an art to flower arranging, and we’re here to cover the basics so you get the most out of your experience with the kit.
