Materials : Orange and white clay, and a translucent clay, headpins and cutter

24

Break the clay into random bits (or equal bits, however you want them)

23

Shape the bits as shown on above image

22

Stick them together as shown above

21

From the bits I had I could do that twice

20

Press them on the sides and make them into a tear shape

19

Join the two as shown above. If you only have one, cut it in half and join the two half so the petals shows more details.

18

Roll them to a cylinder shape

17

Cut the ends as above picture. You’ll need them later on

16

Slice the cylinder into small pieces as shown above. These will be your petals so it’ll good if you keep some consistency in the size

15

These 2 are from the ends that were cut out previously, make them into a sphere and cut it into half.

14

wrap the top of head pins as shown above

13

This is how it looks like

12

With the “petals” that you slice out earlier, press them between your fingers and shape them

11

You can already see the patterns and the translucent effect.

10

Lightly press the bottom to give the petals more details

9

For a more natural/delicate look, press and flatten the edges of the petals to shape it.

8

Take each petals and press it with a tool on the clay with the headpin on it

7

You should have something similar to this when you have all 5 petals join together

6

You can have another few more petals join on top so it has a more 3D effect. The top petals should be place in between of the petals below.

with another few smaller petals on top

Once you’re happy with your flower, you can bake it on tin foil. When it’s done, in the middle you can glue on a bead, clay, glass or stone.
