    Plumeria

    1. Roll white clay into five 1-inch-diameter balls.

    [​IMG] 2. Use rounded base of your thumb to roll balls into a 1 3/4-inch-thin teardrops.

    3. Use your palm to slightly flatten petals.

    4. Place flattened teardrop on your index finger, small end facing down. Hold thinner part of petal, press wider part with round Deco detail stick. With pressure mainly on upper portion of petal, roll stick back and forth to spread out petal. Repeat with remaining petals.
    Pressed side of petal is the inside surface

    5. Fan petals, overlapping each about two-thirds over previous petal.

    6. Twist petals together at base by turning left side of fan inward, then gently open petals.

    7. Turn base of flower with your left hand and pull on petal edges to create an outward curve on each petal.


    8. Tear away any excess clay at base. Let dry completely before painting.

    9. To paint, wet brush, mix acrylic paint, then pick up some color and add to center of flower. Dry brush with paper towel. Then, starting from center of flower, use brush to bring paint out to middle of petal.
