This is continued from Part one here:
You will need:
clay slicing blade-SB
Opaque White Cernit
Porcelain White Cernit
Ruler if you need it
Middle cutter in the Makin's clay Star set M36006
Knitting needle 3 to 4mm
All links above lead to my husband's on-line store the http://www.clayfactory.net/
Thank you so much for looking.
Mix all of the colors and the opaque white with equal amount of the porcelain white.
Last picture from the last part
Roll out a sheet of the conditioned red that is long about 5"x at least 2 1/2" wide.
Trim for straight edges on three sides.
Lay the coil along the bottom edge of the sheet.
Do that with the other two coils too!
Stand the star up so you do not smash the points of the star.
Trim off the excess length from the top of the triangle half coils.
Place all of the coils before worrying about how they fit yet!
I do a little at a time on all of them and then turn the cane from end to end and so it again all the way around.
I am only showing it on the work surface because I take the pictures by myself.
Press your thumb towards your forefinger.
Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect from the end. There is some distortion by pressing the clay and the ends will look funny but may not be funny inside.
Now trim the other side to match the star stack.
Stay tuned for part 3...
