DECO C3 Skill-up Lesson – Iris

Happy New Year! 2024 is already here and we have been very busy the last couple of months preparing for all the exciting things we have in store for you this year! We are kicking off 2024 with the C3 Iris skill-up lesson. Iris flowers are a favorite of many, but it’s always been a challenge to create a realistic-looking iris out of clay. Since the 40th Anniversary, I have spent much time studying the iris flower and am excited to share the new techniques with you! Now, you too will be able to make realistic iris flowers in so many different varieties more easily! We can’t wait to see your iris flower clay creations.
