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 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.
Pre-bake the wooden tray to make sure any sap in the wood is released. If you notice sap on the surface of the tray after it’s cooled, it can be sanded away. Open the White Liquid Sculpey® (LS) and place a puddle of it in the bottom of the tray.
Use one of the clay tools to spread the White LS to the edges of the tray. Add White LS as necessary to make sure you have an even layer.
Sprinkle blue foil glitter into the White LS.
Sprinkle turquoise foil glitter next.
Sprinkle purple foil glitter next.
Sprinkle pink foil glitter.
Finally sprinkle the clear iridescent glitter. Bake the tray following the baking instructions for LS. Allow the tray to cool completely.
Make sure the Clear LS is stirred really well before proceeding. Clear LS generally has a sediment in the bottom of the bottle which should be mixed completely back into the liquid. Add Clear LS to the bottom of the tray completely covering the glitters.
Bake one more time at 300F to clear the liquid completely. If during either baking, there is an air bubble between the liquid layer and the wood, you can very carefully poke a hole in the cured liquid with a needle. Then with an oven mitt on your hand, press the bubble back down releasing the air through the hole while the tray is still warm.
