Step 1: Working on the Non-Stick Craft Sheet apply a thin layer of clay over the inside of the ICE Resin Heart Milan Bezel.
Step 2: Roll a 1/8” coil.
Step 3: Add coils to the bezel cutting off the edges with a toothpick.
Step 4: Using a toothpick pull out the veins of the leaves. The center of the leaf is a little wider than the tip of the leaf.
Step 5 : Make a ball of QuickCure Clay about ¼” and smash it down with your fingers to make an uneven edged pancake. Apply it to the ICE Resin Bezel. This is the beginning of the flower.
Step 6: Make another slightly smaller ball and repeat the last step.
Step 7: Make a very small ball and apply it to the center of the flower. Using a toothpick, make a hole in the center of the ball of clay.
Step 8: Make a series of graduated QuickCure Clay balls.
Step 9: Apply the balls of clay to the bezel. Using a toothpick poke holes in the clay balls.
Step 10: Using a toothpick, poke holes in all the smooth background areas of the QuickCure Clay for interest. You can add a ball at the bottom of the heart and put a large hole in it and a small tiny ball in the center to make another flower. You can add as many flowers as you like. This is just a sample of techniques you can use. Don’t be afraid to come up with your own design.
