Materials and tools:
- Polymer clay (white or pearl)
- Czextuder + LC Disk 8 (extension with 2 semicircles)
- Scalpel, blade
- Pencil, Compass, Protractor, Ruler
Draw a circle with a compass. Then use a protractor to divide it into 9 parts (40° each).
Connect the points to form 3 equilateral triangles.
Connect each vertex to 2 opposite vertices and the template is ready.
Let’s make the star. Follow the same procedure as for drawing. Start with the first triangle. Press at joints and cut off the excess clay.
Make the other two triangles the same way. Press at all the joints.
Again, connect each vertex to 2 opposite vertices.
Complete the whole star and bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
After baking, place a second tile on the star to avoid bending. Let it cool down. Hang the star on a window or door and you are done.
