Beautiful Butterfly Magnets
Use the Clay Roller Kit to roll out a 1/4” thick slab of clay. Cover the clay with plastic wrap.
Use the Activ-Tools Designer Clay Cutters to cut out the butterfly’s wing shapes.
Remove the access clay around the shapes.
Score and slip the wing shapes together.
Roll a small cylinder and sphere out of clay. Attach the forms to the center of the wings to form the butterfly’s body.
Use the pointed tool to make the eyes, mouth and holes for the wire antennas.
Create symmetrical patterns on the wings by indenting the tools, rubber stamps, texture sheets or found objects into the clay.
Allow the clay to dry for 24 hours before painting.
Use a variety of colors to paint the butterfly sculpture.
Glue small pieces of pipe cleaners or wire into the holes created for the antennas.
Use the adhesive to attach a small magnet to the back side of the butterfly sculpture.
Attach the butterfly to a magnetic surface to display it.
