Quick and Easy Flower Magnets

Are you a beginner and need a simple project to get you started with cold porcelain? 
Or maybe you need to make a quick gift!  
Or maybe you're just a lover of fridge magnets!   ;-)  
I came across this easy magnet tutorial from French artist Brigida Clement    She has allowed translation to English, with proper credits to her original, of course.   Please visit her website at Babou Bricole

To create the flower magnets, first tint some cold porcelain dough the flower color of your choice.   Shape into 5 or 6 balls of equal size.   Size of balls depends on size of your magnet.  Make them large enough to make a circle of petals as shown in above photo.

With the modeling tool, mark an indentation in the middle of each ball, flattening each ball into a petal as you make indentation using photo below as an example.  Mold a yellow ball of slightly smaller size and place it in the heart of the flower.   There you have it!   A cute little flower magnet!    Make a whole bunch of these in lots of colors for your own flower garden on a magnet board...or on refrigerator!

Sorry I had to re-instate the 'word verification'...I'm getting far too much spam in the comment box.
