Project Instructions
Getting Started with Sculpey Bake Shop® clays:

• Bake at 275 °F (121 °C), 15 minutes per 1/4 inch (6 mm) thickness.

Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey Tools™ 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.
Each student will need: 3 sections of whatever base color they choose, one section of two different colors (For the layers) and 2 sections of black. Optional one section of white. Here we used:
Blue for the Base
Black for the shark
White and Purple for the layers

Roll out base color to about 1/4 inch, cut out a 3” x 3” square.

Take a small piece of both Blue and White clay make mix together to make a light blue clay.
Then roll into thin snakes and layer these randomly onto the base color.

Using the Pointy tool end of the plastic modeling tool make two holes, one in each corner at the top of your piece. Make sure that these are not to close to the edge, you don’t want the yarn to pull through.

Bake according to the directions in Step 1 above.
