Recommended Makin’s® Tools
Small round cutter
Create a sheet of white Makin’s Clay® by running it through the Makin’s Professional® Ultimate on the largest setting, #1.
Place the other piece over the top of the painted piece. Run the whole thing through the clay machine The longest edge should go into the clay machine first.on the largest setting.
Fold the bottom of the piece up to the top always lining up the sides and run through the clay machine. Repeat until the sheet is completely blended. Be careful to never turn the sheet so that only one color is touching the rollers (usually it is the longest edge that goes into the clay machine first.) There should always be two colors touching the rollers like in the picture, red on one side and yellow on the other. This is similar to the Skinner Blend.
If the clay gets sticky, rub it with a little corn starch. (This is corn starch is a small sock.)
Once the sheet it blended, move the setting of the
clay machine down one setting at a time until the clay has been run through the #4 setting.
Create a sheet of black Makin’s Clay® by running it through the clay machine starting with the largest setting. Move the setting of the clay machine down one setting at a time until the clay has been run through the #4 setting.
Cut out two large circles from the shaded sheet using the large round cutter from the Makin’s Clay® Round Cutter Set.
Cut out two small flowers from the black sheet using the small flower cutter from the Makin’s Clay® Flower Cutter Set and two flowers from inside of the circles.
Remove the shaded flowers from the circles and replace with the black flowers. Cut small dots from the shaded flowers and put on the black flowers as centers.
Poke a hole in the top of the circles with the stylus from the Makin’s Clay® Mixing Ruler™. Let dry 24 hours.
