  • Fully condition each.
  • Choose ONE color and roll it into a ball.
  • Use an acrylic plate to compress the ball, making the top & bottoms flat.
  • Remove the smashed ball from the acrylic.
  • Roll a different color of clay on the thickest setting of your pasta machine.
  • Use a cutter just smaller than the size of the ball and cut 2 rounds from that color.
  • Place one round on the top and one round on the bottom of your smashed ball.
  • Now run a 3rd color through your pasta machine on the 4th smallest setting.
  • Cut out 7-13 stars (depending on the size of your smashed ball) using a star shaped cutter.
  • Place the stars evenly all around the round part of the ball.
  • Try to line all the stars up so their points match height and location.
  • Bake in a dedicated polymer clay oven according to your brand’s directions.
  • ENJOY!
