    Project Instructions

    Using a 4x4 cm cookie cutter cut out 3 squares of different colours at setting 3 of your pasta maker
    Stack the colorson top of each other and pass all on the widest setting on your pasta maker. Cut the sheet in two, place one on top of the other and pass all through again.
    Lightly spray the texture sheet with water, press into the stacked clay. Use the flexible blade to slice off the very top layers of the clay.
    Place a piece of grey or black clay (rolled out at setting 3 on your pasta maker) and then lightly flatten the entire clay with a rolling pin. Next cut out a 4x4cm (1.5x1.5 inches) square with your cookie cutter.
    Cut out a curve with your flexible blade (see photograph). Keep the two resulting pieces.
    Prepare two rectangles of clay measuring 3x7 cm (1x2-3/4 inches) at the widest setting of your pasta maker: one dark and one colour (note that the colour will not show in the final version) and then roll out a colour rectangle measuring 1.5cm x 3cm (1/2x1 inch) at the thin setting (next to thinnest setting) of your pasta maker. Place them as indicated in the photograph then flatten them lightly with a rolling pin.
    For the next step you will need to use a template. Using a table mat cut out a rectangle measuring 2 cm x 5.2 cm (3/4x2 inches). You could also use a laminator for this.Place your template above your plate and then turn over everything against a plate of glass or a tile and flatten with a rolling pin
    Take the corner of your template and peel it off its backing. You will see a hollow forming in the centre of the rectangle. Using your finger increase the hollow to increase the curve of the pearl.
    Once the pearl has been made round, place the whole again on a glass plate. Using your thumb, press around the outside of the rectangle.
    Use a flexible blade to remove the pearl from its backing. Place your piece aside.
    Cut out 2 teardrop shapes, using the 3/4 inch teardrop cutter, from the smallest of the decorative plates.
    With a rigid blade, flatten the rounded ends.
    Apply BAKE & BOND on the long part of the ears and the length of the body.
    Bring together all the elements. Create two little balls that you will flatten on the muzzle and then pierce to create the nostrils.
    To create the eyes: create two larger balls for the contours of the eyes. Using a styling tool hollow out the balls and then place them on the head of the animal. Create 2 more smaller white balls that will fit the first. Finally, make two tiny black balls that you will flatten on the white balls.
    If you wish, you can give texture to your animal using a flat brush.
    Cut out 5 round pastilles with the 9mm round cutter in the red clay that has been put through the pasta maker at the widest setting. Pierce them with a large needle.
    Cut out 5 pastilles again in the green clay that has gone through the pasta maker at the widest setting and roll them into a ball.
    Bake all the pieces according to the directions in Step 1
    Place a black backing sheet at setting 3 in your pasta maker under your cow, trimming to fit and bake again according to directions in Step 1.
    With the help of a DREMEL type tool partially pierce the green balls.
    Cut 5 lengths of cord with a diameter of 1.5mm (either leather or rubber) 2cm (3/4 inch) in length. Place a drop of instant glue inside the ball and insert the cord. Repeat with the other 5 balls. You will then be able to thread the 5 red pastilles to go on top of the ball.
    Once the cow body has cooled down, pierce 5 holes (4 legs and a tail) on the body of the cow and glues the legs/tail into place. Add your magnet in the back and you are ready with your new Klick the Cow!
