Today's Ways to use it challenge we are making a card with our state, providence or country flower. The Wisconsin flower is the woodland violet. Started this card by using the new white clay from su. Rolled it like a snake and cut out five pieces, using my grandkids playdough accessories, handle of my paint brush and a mouse pad molded the petals. This stuff is fun and quite amazing. You can make it paper thin, and it air dries to a soft pliable texture. I painted the petals with acrylic paints. Painted the stems and leaves with acrylic paints. After the clay flowers dried adhered them with a glue gun. Added the sentiment. tfl. Come and join us celebrate the 4th of July with this challenge.
