Here in the UK it is Remembrance Sunday where we take time to remember all those who have been injured or killed in war. I thought it was appropriate to share my polymer clay poppy brooches, which I have been wearing this week. I used a mould to create the shape, then highlighted the petals with acrylic paint and added some black glitter to the centres. I did make a donation to the Poppy Fund, even though I wasn't wearing one of their poppies.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
(from For the Fallen by by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)
