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.
Fill the largest butterfly in the Butterfly Silicone Mold with Silver Liquid Sculpey (LS). Squeegee off excess and bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS. When the butterfly is completely cool, carefully cut it in half with scissors.
Trim off the body tips at an angle following the shape of the wings
Attach jump rings to the butterfly as shown with the 3mm size on each end and eight 4mm jump rings in the middle. Repeat for the second half of the butterfly as well.
Open up the hoop earring and thread it through the jump rings placing the butterfly in the center of the hoop opposite the clasp. Assemble the second earring in mirror fashion as shown.
