You know, I am a dedicated person. That’s why when I get the idea, it immediately grows into ‘mania’ and I spend days and nights looking for the ways to translate it into reality. Once surfing the Internet and looking for some inspiration, I bumped into the photo of succulents…
Probably, here should be a charming story of how I went to the flower shop and bought a lot of succulents and then created my own garden… No! As ill luck would have it, I couldn’t find any succulent in any shop in my native city. I was wandering from shop to shop being unable to find it. I also searched on the Internet, but the online stores proposed me circa 10-14 days of shipping - did I say that I also was an impatient person? Of course, I wanted to have succulents here and now. And If I cannot have something immediately, I will just… create it!
So I found lots of photos of real succulents on the Internet and started my work. At first, it was really hard, since I had made only flowers before and succulents required a special new technique, but finally I caught the trick of doing them. And you know what? When I was finishing my 10th succulent item, my husband somehow managed to find the real succulent and presented it for me! I was so happy! However, this gift only inspired me to make more and more succulents!
Today I have a lot of real succulents, a beautiful small garden! And among all this beauty I continue making more and more new polymer clay succulents. I love them a lot. Hope you will love them too!
