Master class on modeling muskarik (mouse hyacinth) from polymer clay

Posted by: Maria Koltsova

Finally, I “matured” to my own full-fledged master class 🙂 Before that, I sculpted muskariki, simply passing a scalpel along the edge, pressing down, and painted my tips with white paint (master classes from the Internet), I didn’t like the result much - I didn’t have enough naturalness , and this white paint stood out a lot on the bud. And somehow on the Internet, I came across this photo of a muscarian, he inspired me.

And now from the introduction to the most important thing! 🙂


1. Polymer clay (cold porcelain).

2. PVA glue.

3. Starch, so that the buds do not stick to the tool.

4. Superglue Second 505 (any other quick-drying glue can be used).

5. Pastel (you can oil paints, acrylic - paint what you used to).

6. Wire floristic and beaded.

7. The scalpel.

8. The stack with the ball is the smallest.

9. Silicone stack (to align the clay, if necessary).

10. Brushes.

11. Pliers and nippers.

12. Tap tape.

13. Oil paint white (for dyeing clay).

14. Matt acrylic lacquer (for fastening pastels).

We will sculpt from white clay, pinch off a small piece and roll in the shape of a drop as in the photo.

Next, "drop" we put on the stack with a ball, stretching and lengthening slightly the tip.

Now we need to divide the tip into 6 equal parts with a scalpel.

We take the stack with the ball (the smallest one) and press it, slightly pulling the petal to the top.

And doing it with all six.

We pass the beaded wire with a loop at the end through the bud, and coat the loop with PVA glue.

Try to sculpt different buds, half-open and open. To blind half-open, press the stack a little on the petal, in the photo you can see the difference.

Slap yourself buds as you need, I have 56 pcs. for 5 colors, let them dry out.

Now let's do the stems. We take floristic wire and wrap with tape-tape (you can immediately buy yourself in the winding). Roll the clay translucent (not tinted with white paint) sausage in the length of the wire itself.

We put the wire on the clay and press it down, pinch the edges of the clay and roll on the surface until such a stalk.

At the tips of the stem, I had formed extra clay, I made a little bud out of it,so we do all the subsequent buds, divide the drop into 6 parts and glue it on the PVA glue.

All leave to dry out. Our buds should have dried up already, we start painting. I painted with pastels, rubbed it into powder and diluted it with some water, we painted it like on a photo of a living flower.

When the stem with the closed buds has dried, we paint it.

After all have painted, all dried up, proceed to assembly. In the buds, cut off the excess wire (pictured above) and glue to the stem with superglue. I glued almost randomly and with a different number of buds on the stem, so that was more interesting.

When everything is stuck, everything is dry, you need to tint a little bit more, I tinted both with green and purple pastels, at the same time check the strength of the budding, I have 2 disappeared at the same time :) Of course they need to be glued again. Painted, everything dried up again, now you can cover everything with varnish (I applied with a brush). When applying this varnish on pastel, the colors are mixed with each other, a beautiful effect is obtained 🙂 Well, that's all, muscari are ready!

It seems everything has written and shown, if there are questions, write in the comments.

Thank you for your attention 🙂
