3 pint mason jars with lids; white glue or superglue; soft brush; Antique gold mica powder
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.
Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Secure the two parts of the jar lid together with glue inside the rim of the flat. Insert into the jar ring and allow to dry.
Roll a sheet of clay to a medium thickness on the pasta machine or about 2 mm thickness with the acrylic roller. The sheet should be larger than the diameter of the jar lid by at least 1/2”.
Smooth the clay over the jar lid and trim the edge. Bake according to the instruction in step 1.
Using marble size and smaller balls of clay, begin by flattening and pinching the edges of each piece of clay to shape the largest petals of a rose.
Make 5-6 petals and arrange them in a circle just smaller than the jar lid. Layer some over others and curl edges as desired
Make 3-5 smaller petals and arrange them on top of the first layer.
Make a long oval of a pea-size ball of clay and roll it from side to side for the rose center. Add small petals around the center. Trim the excess clay at the bottom if necessary and place it on the previous layers of petals.
Place the flower on the baked lid and secure with a few drops of Liquid Sculpey between the surfaces. With a soft brush, apply a dusting of mica powder on the edge of the petals
Repeat making two smaller flowers and butting the petals against each other for the second lid. Make 3 flowers for the third lid, also brushing the petal edges with mica powder. Bake the lids a second time.
