This doorplate is inspired by Jugendstil (Art Nouveau).
I first made a cardboard plate and then covered it in tinfoil.
The first layer of fimo was attached, to make a smooth surface whereupon the rest of the artwork would come.
I used rolls of clay to make the branches and where necessary made them broader (usually at the stem of the branch or in the edges).
The flowers are real beads, so I just baked them with the clay.
The result, I think, is very nice and it is just as I had in mind.
The piece is about 8" x 4".
