Gather all supplies needed.
Using Makin's Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine® roll out Makin’s Clay® beginning on setting #1 and ending at setting #3.
Roll Merlot and Natural clay in Ultimate Clay Machine® to setting #3. Cut into strips approximately 1/4". Cut stars from Merlot clay. (Hint: Strips are small and will begin drying quickly, cover with a damp paper towel to keep your work from drying out before you are finished).
Use Merlot and Natural strips in an alternating pattern to cover the Concord Blue square. Fresh clay will stick to fresh clay without additional adhesive. Let dry for a couple of hours.
Once the clay has begun to dry, find the center and cut as shown (this picture is my first attempt, not great. Things don't always turn out as planned!)
At alternating cuts, fold to center. I used Beacon Power Tac adhesive to adhere to the center. Adhere the stars to the centers of each pinwheel.
Adhere the pin backs with Power Tac.
