Place a clear page protector on a flat surface and tape its ends to secure it. Roll the clay well with a rolling pin on the page protector so that it won’t stick on the table.

When the polymer clay is rolled out to the desired thickness (it should not be too thin, so that our heart do not break), place a piece of lace on top of it and press gently with the rolling pin. Then carefully remove the lace.
