Step 2: Roll Out the Clay
Take a piece of clay of your chosen color and roll it out flat using the rolling pin. Make sure it's thick enough to hold its shape but thin enough to cut easily.

Step 4: Add Details
Now it's time to add details to your butterfly. Use a toothpick to draw patterns on the wings and body of the butterfly. You can also add small pieces of different colored clay to create a colorful pattern.

Step 5: Let it Dry
Once you're satisfied with your design, let the butterfly dry. If you're using air-dry clay, this could take up to 24 hours. If you're using oven-bake clay, follow the instructions on the package.
