Polymer Clay Lei
Aloha! I’m originally from Hawai`i and I have always loved being creative. One of my favorite mediums to work with is polymer clay. Here is the beginning stage of my “pikake” lei and my completed project — my polymer clay lei.
Each of the main, white flowers were made from a sheet of clay that was rolled through a pasta machine dedicated to my clay, and then a flower shaped cutter was used to punch each bud out. Then each one was then formed into what you see and baked. It took approximately 15-16 hours to make all of the components and then another 15-16 hours to string them all up.
