Materials:

 1 block Sculpey® III: Candy Pink * – 2 oz
 1 block Sculpey® III: Pearl – 2 oz
 1 block Sculpey® III: Granny Smith – 2 oz
 Sculpey® Push Mold-Flowers & Leaves
 White ribbon
 Square glass votive
 Silicone Glue

Instructions:

1. Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay.
For best results, condition all clay by running it through the clay dedicated pasta machine several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
2. Condition and mix equal parts of Candy Pink and Pearl together, but not completely.

3. Use the Flowers and Leaves push mold to make three small rose petals, four medium rose petals, and six large

rose petals from the swirl color. Make two rose leaves from Granny Smith.
4. Press the three small petals into a little triangle shape. Add the four medium petals around the outside of the  center petals. Add the six large petals around the outside overlapping each petal slightly. Make sure the flower
petals all hold together well by pinching them together at the bottom of the rose. Gently cut off the pinched part so that the flower can sit flat on the side of the votive.

5. Add on the leaves. Bake the rose as directed above.

6. After baking allow the rose to cool. Cut ribbon and wrap it around the votive securing it into place with a few
dots of glue. Glue the rose onto the front of the votive where the ribbon overlaps.
