Sunflower Bottle Cap



Some fellow clay enthusiasts who run an online polymer clay workshop site are opening a new workshop classroom in Florida. They reached out to members of their Facebook Group to create polymer clay enhanced bottle caps to be used for a special project in the new classroom.   I created this miniature sunflower as my submission.  Create several featuring different flowers and attach magnets to the back for your refrigerator and brighten up your kitchen for summer. 

Materials:

Makin's Clay® - Earth Tones Multi Pack
Makin's Professional® Tool Kit
Bottle cap
Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive
DecoArt® Americana® Acrylic - Lamp Black (Ebony)
DecoArt® Americana® Multi-Surface Satin™ - School Bus
Fine paint brush
Optional:  magnet

Instructions:

Use the Persimmon clay to create small rolled "beads" with one end at a point, then gently flatten each to create numerous petals for the flower.

Add 3-in-1 Adhesive to the bottom of the bottle cap.  Begin adding the petals around the outer edge.  Then mount another row in front of the first.



Use a fine paint brush to add a touch of yellow paint to each petal - the goal is not to coat entirely, but to let the color beneath still show in some areas. 
Roll a ball of brown clay, flatten slightly and glue to center of flower.  While clay is still fresh, use fine point on clay tool to add indentations to mimic seeds.  


Add a light touch of black paint to the center of the flower, allowing the brown to show through in some areas.  
Let dry 24 hours.   If desired, glue a magnet to the back of the bottle cap.
