Project Instructions
    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
First, mix together two parts of Pearl with 1 part of Mauve to create Pearl Mauve. Sheet the Pearl Mauve using the Acrylic Clay Roller to about 1/8” thick.
Pinch pieces of Graphite Pearl spots - 1/4” to 3/8” in size - and press them randomly onto the Pearl Mauve sheet.
Pinch smaller pieces of Mauve and press them in the middle of each of the larger Graphite Pearl spots. This gives you a pattern that looks like an animal print.
Position the Fashion Icon template on the sheet of clay to determine where you would like the pattern. Cut out two shapes using the 5-in-1 Clay Tool with the knife blade.
Flip one of the shapes over backwards before cutting out the center with the smallest Irregular Rectangle Cutter. This way, the little cut outs in the middle will be mirror imaged.
Flip them both right side up. Smooth all the cut edges with your fingertips.
Sheet Graphite Pearl with the Acrylic Clay Roller to a sheet 1/8” thick. Use the Fashion Icon template and the Clay Knife to cut out two small shapes for the top pieces.
Position the pieces as you would like them to attach. Poke holes in the top of each of the Mauve pieces and the bottom of the Graphite Pearl pieces with the 5-in-1 Needle Tool.

Bake following the baking instructions in Step 1 above.
Connect the tops and bottoms with jump rings and flat nose pliers through the holes in each clay piece. Glue ear posts to the backs and allow to dry completely.
