Rolling orange clay to make the stamen

1. Make the stamen

First, make thin rolls with the first color of your choice. Use your fingers to roll the clay and cut it into pieces as you go along. 

Cutting the pieces

Once you get to a thin roll, cut a few pieces with your blade.

2. Make the petals

Roll another color until it becomes a long thick roll as pictured. 

Cutting the pieces

Cut five equal pieces. 

Shaping the petals

Roll each piece between your fingers to create a ball. Then, flatten it to create a thin flat circle. 

Folding one end inwards

Fold the bottom into pleats and squeeze the bottom folds together to form a petal. Repeat for all petal pieces. 

Assembling the flower

3. Assemble the flower

Put all the thin red rolls together to make the inner part of the flower.

Next, attach the petals to the stamen.

Fold the outer part of the petal outward, too. 

Twisting the stem

Turn the stem as you arrange the rest of the petals. This helps the petals stick together and elongates the stem, thus preparing it for a clean cut at the end. 

Cutting off the stem

4. Cut off the stem

Slide your blade under the flower to cut off the stem.
