Swirl up the colors, roll them into a log, and then fold them in half.  Repeat this process until there are streaks of color running through the clay.

Sunflowers tend to have a lot of  petals and a large center.  To make the petals, pull and pinch sections of the streaked log of clay. You don’t have to use all the petals.  It’s important that the petals are a little random in size and color.  Let them twist a curl slightly.

Add one or two layers of leaves to the back of the center.  I should have added the texture after I put the leaves on!  The pressure of adding the texture would have helped to squish the petals on.

Add the leaves.  Bake the clay and glue a magnet to the back.
