Condition all clay according to manufacturer's instructions. To make chartreuse clay, mix a 1-inch ball of green with a 1-1/4-inch ball of yellow.

Steps:

  1. To make the mushroom stem: Flatten a sheet of chartreuse through the pasta machine on a #1 (1/8 inch) setting. Use the Nublade to cut a 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangle.
     
  2. Press ends of the rectangle together to make a cylinder, erasing the seam with your fingers. Place on top of the blue glass.


     
  3. For the mushroom top: Flatten a 1-1/8-inch ball of green into a 2-1/4-inch circle, tapering the thickness from the center on out. Curl the edges slightly and place on top of the stem.
     
  4. For the flowers: Roll 15 small (approximately 5/32-inch) balls of white clay into teardrops. Use the toothpick to indent each petal. Press five petals together at the narrow ends to make the flower.
     
  5. Roll three 1/8-inch balls of yellow and press into the center of each flower. Position flowers on the blue glass.


     
  6. To make the fairy body: Roll a 5/8-inch ball of magenta into a 1-inch-long tapered log.
     
  7. For the legs: Roll two 7/16-inch balls of magenta into 1-inch-long tapered logs. Shape the widest ends into pointed feet. Press onto both sides to the body.


     
  8. For the arms: Roll two 3/8-inch balls of magenta into 3/4-inch-long logs. Press arms to both sides of the body and position.
     
  9. For the hands: Flatten two 3/16-inch balls of beige into teardrops. Press onto the end of each arm.


     
  10. For the head: Roll a 17/32-inch ball of beige. Press two black micro marbles into head for eyes. Use a toothpick to draw two squint lines by each eye. Roll a 1/16-inch ball of beige and press onto the head for a nose. Press a circle cutter halfway into the head to make the mouth, or use a toothpick to draw the mouth. Blush the cheeks using a cotton swab.
     
  11. For the hat, roll a 17/32-inch ball of magenta into a teardrop. Use the blunt end of a paintbrush to hollow out the hat, and press the hat onto the top of the head.


     
  12. For the ears: Flatten two 3/16-inch balls of beige into teardrops. Press onto both sides of the head. Use the blunt end of a paintbrush to indent each ear.
     
  13. Press the head onto the top of the body. Place fairy on top of the mushroom.


     
  14. For the wings, cut two 2-3/4-inch lengths of white wire. Shape into wings and twist ends together. Lay flat on parchment paper. Fill wings with Kato clear medium; then sprinkle glitter all over wings.


     
  15. Bake wings at 275 F degrees for 20 minutes and let cool. Use scissors to cut off excess. Press wings into the back of the body.
     
  16. Bake entire piece at 270 F degrees for 25 minutes. Allow to cool.
     
  17. Use the blunt end of a paintbrush to dot entire mushroom top with white dots of paint.
