After working with the clay for a bit to get it nice and soft and workable, roll several small oblong-y solids. (Yes, I know I could have said balls, but my version is more fun!)
Next, squish 'em! Yup! Squish them into little petal shapes. You can pinch one side just a bit to get the desired form.
Layer the pinched ends together and press gently to make them all stick to each other. (Yes, I realize this is a highly technically worded tutorial. WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE WANT FROM ME! HA!)
Make some smaller oblong-y solids and squish those and add them as the next layer. Do this until you are happy with the number of petals you have on your flower.
Roll ONE spherical solid (also known as a 'sphere.' Technically speaking. Just say'n.) and squish it but good to create the center of your flower. Add it to the flower. In the center. (That's the middle.) HA!
Finally, add your bail and bake at 275 for about 25 minutes or so (or by the manufacturers instructions printed on the clay package).
Isn't that just SUPER CUTE and SUPER FUN? It is. I promise. NOW, it's YOUR TURN! Show us what you made this week by adding a direct link to your post below. The link should NOT be to a shop - only to blog or flickr type posts. You can post ANYTHING made by you! Baked, paper crafted, painted, mix media-ed, crocheted, knitted, quilted, pieced, sculpted, or WHATEVER! Please spread the word about my little Fabulous Friday linky party so we get lots of projects and LOTS of inspiration! (Tweet, Facebook it, blog it...whatever! Thanks!)
