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.
Roll a snake of Coral clay approx. 3/4” x 4” long. Roll one snake each of Pearl, Rose Gold Glitter, and Gray Granite that are approx. 1/4” x 4” long. Press the snakes together and twist.

Fold in half and twist again. Repeat this process a few times to marble the colors together.
Roll clay into a 2 to 2 1/2” sized ball.

Shape the ball into a cube shape.

Use your clay knife and cut away the four top corners of your cube only cutting half of the way down.

Turn your cube over and repeat this on the other end. Your cube should now look like a faceted shape.

Refine the shape by pressing each flat side flatter. I like to press the flat sides down on my work surface area and rotate until the shape looks nice and clean

Cut a 3-1/2” piece of wire. Wrap one end around a Sharpie marker a couple of times to make a coil that you can slide a picture into. Bend the end of the coil at a right angle and insert into the top of your geo faceted shape.

Bake at 275 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes due to the thickness of the shape. Allow to cool.

Highlight all the edges of the facets with your Metallic Silver paint. Allow to dry.
