Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275°F (130°C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be completed by an adult.
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.
After conditioning, marble about ¼ package of Bronze with 1/8 package of Silver. You do not want the colors to completely mix together. Use the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #3 setting to roll out a sheet of the newly marbled color.
Lightly mist the sheet of clay with water and press the texture sheet into the clay.
With a Super Slicer blade nearly parallel to the surface of the clay, shave off the raised texture until the surface of the sheet is smooth. Use the Acrylic Roller Roll to smooth.
Use the Flexible Super Slicer Blade to cut out the shape of your earrings. Use the small circle cutter to cut out a circle shape at the bottom of each piece.
Use the Clay Conditioning Machine to roll out a sheet of 18K Gold. Texture the sheet with the fine grit sandpaper.
Use the small circle cutter to cut out two discs from the 18K Gold sheet. Insert the 18K Gold discs into the spaces you cut out on the earrings.
Use the Clay Conditioning Machine on the widest setting to roll out another sheet of Bronze clay. Lay the earrings on the sheet and use the Flexible Super Slicer to cut the same shape.
Use the Needle Tool to pierce the top of the shapes for the jump-rings.
Bake according to the directions above and allow to cool.
Sand the clay surfaces using wet/dry 400 grit sandpaper. Repeat with 600 grit. Buff with a soft cloth.
Using the jump ring attach the ear wires to each earring and Enjoy!
