3.  Start by rolling out your clay, choosing to mix the color, or using just one color.  Here I chose, red and yellow and rolled the two color together.  Use the texture plate on the clay for added dimension.  Cut out a shape.  I chose a bird and liked the way the belly of the bird is a reddish tint.

If you are going to add wire to hang, poke holes into clay and set aside to dry.
4.  Use the push mold to make letters to add to your clay project.  I chose the word “FLY”.

5.  Here is my bird after I have added the wire and words
6.  Using the Makin’s Cutter Set, I chose a heart shape and added some texture

7.  With the green colored clay, I cut out an oval shape with the oval cutter, added some dimension, mica powder and a bead at the end.
8.  With some of the left over yellow and red clay, I formed a rose, and added a bead with a head pin through the middle (I love how cute the rose is).
9. Finished products made with the Makin’s Clay.

    Love the clay embellishments. The rose is so pretty. I like how the mica and beads are added to further enhance the clay embellishments. Great tutorial, Deborah.
