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 1/4" (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.
Roll out a 1/2 bar of each color through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the widest setting to make sheets.
Stack the sheets of clay in this order starting with the bottom color- Pearl, Wasabi, Rhino Grey, Pomegranate. Run the stack through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the widest setting. Cut the stack in half and stack again. Run through the Clay Conditioning Machine again. Repeat this step two more times.
Lightly mist the Dots Technique Design Block Tool and press into the surface of the stacked clay.
Hold the Super Slicer almost parallel to the textured surface of clay. Carefully cut slices that are about 1/16” thick.
Roll out a sheet of Pomegranate on widest setting. Add texture with sandpaper. Use the Flexible Super Slicer, curve the blade and cut out 8 pointed oval shapes, about 2 ¼” x 1 ¼”.
Cut out 8 smaller pointed oval shapes from the textured dot slices, about 1 5/8” x 1”.
Press the smaller oval shapes onto the Pomegranate oval shapes.
Press the oval shapes on to the votive holder in a staggering pattern.
Roll out a sheet of Wasabi through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the thickest setting. Use the circle cutters to cut out various size disks. Place these cut outs in between the oval shapes on the glass votive alternating sizes. Use as many as you want.
Bake the clay shapes on the glass according to the directions above and allow to cool. If the clay pieces are loose after baking you can add some clear, fast drying glue to help them adhere.
