Getting Started with Liquid Sculpey®:
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 Liquid Polymer Clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately. - Stir Liquid Sculpey® completely.
Thin with Sculpey® Liquid Clay Softener as needed - Wash hands after use (we have found that baby wipes work best)
• It is important to use oven thermometer when you bake the liquids so that you can ensure your oven is at the correct temperature. • Do not microwave the liquids. They must be baked in a Preheated oven at 275 ºF (130 ºC) for liquid colors and 300 ºF (149 ºC) for Clear – Do not exceed baking temperatures. • If your piece is less than 1/4” bake for 15 minutes. For thicker pieces that are 1/4” or above bake for 30 minutes. • If your liquid project has become yellowed or discolored in the oven, when you remake it, tent it by placing either – folding an index card in half and placing your project under it or by using aluminum foil over your project.
Select the following from free online clipart options: “BOO”, a bat, and a ghost. Size and print the designs so you are able to fit 3-small bats, one ghost, and “BOO” on the floating glass frame.
Tape the printed images to the bottom of the tempered glass sheet. Note: Taping the paper to the glass sheet will keep the images from moving while you apply the liquid clay to the glass.
Start with one of the bats. Squeeze a drop of black liquid clay onto the body of the bat. Use the small paintbrush to move the liquid clay to the edge of the clipart image. Add more drops of the liquid clay as needed. Note: Adding the clay a few drops at a time will keep the liquid clay from spreading past the outer edge of the clipart design.
Use the needle tool to pull the liquid clay into the tips of the ears and wings.
To create the ghost, use White liquid clay and follow the process used to make the bats.
Add two black drops of Black liquid clay to the ghost face.
Use the needle tool to add a small white dot on each black drop.
To create the word “BOO”, use the White liquid clay and follow the process used to make the bats.
Use the aluminum foil to create a “tent” and place the tent over the bats and ghost. We will be adding glitter to the word “BOO”; tenting the bats and ghosts will protect them from getting covered in glitter.
Add small amounts of the green, orange, and purple glitter into the small plastic mixing cup and stir the glitter together.
Liberally sprinkle the glitter over the word “BOO”.
Once you have achieved good glitter coverage bake the liquid clay on the glass per the information in Getting Started.
Let the baked liquid clay cool completely, remove from tempered glass sheet, and add to the floating glass frame.
