As this is my second year on Makin’s Clay® DT I can pretty much make any project I desire and right now I am in this flowers mood and from this month on I will do some different clay flower tutorials monthly for Makin’s Clay® blog.
The first one is a Sunflower tutorial and the techniques used are clay sheet die cutting and acrylic paints coloring over the dry clay.
Makin's Clay flexibility is just perfect even when we work with already dry clay, so we still can reshape our dry clay pieces. The perfect ability to be colored with acrylics makes it possible to work with just white Makin's Clay and to paint the final shape into any possible colors.
So here is my tutorial for May- April showers sure brought us my May flowers!
Makin’s Professional®Roller and Cutters set®. You also can use the Makin's Clay Ultimate Clay Machine on setting 5, but for this project I decided to use the roller only.
Let the rolled clay dry for a few hours.
Let the shapes dry and don't forget to paint the white backs too.
Glue the painted flowers on the top of the sunflower.
Step 10 and final:
Glue the black background over the glass inside the photos frame. Cover with glaze and glue the sunflower over the background. Cover the sunflower with glaze. Let it dry and enjoy your first Makin's Clay flower.
More to come next month and so on!
