Practising Making Peonies

Over the last week, I practiced making dollhouse miniature peonies using the new technique.
I am trying to make as many as I can, while the air dry clay remains fresh :)

I'm loving this color very much, so I'm trying to use up all of it. It looks like a fairly large chunk of clay, but in actual fact, it isn't really. But the color is hand mixed, and I just didn't want to waste it. So I'm going to make peonies out of this. Besides, the color of the peonies that I made did turn out looking really nice.

We had a fair share of really hot days and some cool rainy days here for the past week. When it's really rainy, it's a great day for just staying home and making peonies. :)

I use this small cup to place my peonies to dry. These are small sample cups where you'll find in supermarkets where they'll put samples of drinks or even sometimes food. I used to stick it in the flora sponge, but in this way, I can really inspect all the petals while letting it dry. It also helps to give me a sense of how they'll look in a bouquet or vase arrangement. 

While letting it dry, I noticed that there were some gaps in my peonies. See the above circled one.

So I filled up the gap again. Yup - I did managed to do just that! 


My last Miniature Pink Vespa and flowers bouquet post received a huge amount of likes and probably the most comments of all my posts on my facebook page

It blew me away... I'm so grateful for all the likes and comments. I didn't know that many people love the Vespa and flowers :) Thank you so much! 

Wishing all my US friends a Happy 4th July! 


  1. Hi Pei Li! Your peonies are a beautiful soft shade of pink and so pretty even in a drying cup, in a bouquet or in a wooden crate on the back of a Vespa. I think that they can naturally brighten every day regardless of any inclement weather. :)

    1. Dear Elizabeth, thank you for your sweet words and for liking these peonies! :)

  2. Hi Pei Li. More beautiful peonies! And I think the one with gaps looks realistic and adds variation. And your Vespa was gorgeous, it deserved all those likes! Well done, it must be very rewarding for you!

    1. Dear Shannon, Thanks for your sweet comments! Ordinarily I wouldn't attempt to "fix" the peonies, but those gaps were a little too glaring. :D

  3. BEAUTIFUL. Perfectionist Pei! I LOVE how you filled in the gaps, making sure your petals are just right! ;) Adoring the peonies! PEONY FEVER! <3 And WOW-- Congratulations on all the Facebook love! You deserve all the kudos!! <33

    1. Dear Deborah, thank you so much! I'm so glad you love them! :)
