I dipped my toe into the genre of sculpture just barely and came out with what I'm going to call a candle holder... I'm considering this project a prototype that can use a little tweaking, but I love the idea of it and wanted to share it with you.
I started by rolling out some Sculpey polymer clay and cutting out a leaf design. I used these Wilton leaf cookie cutters.
I cut out four leaves and laid them on my mold (a metal one cup measuring cup).
Then I added a circle cut out for a base. I baked my sculpture per the clay instructions.
I put a votive candle inside to create a little sculptural candle holder.
I think if I can find a bigger candle to fill up the space a bit more it would be perfect.
Or just add a circle cut out to the center and enjoy my creation as a sculpture.
Give it a try, modify, perfect and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading and subscribing!
