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.
Fold a piece of card stock in half to create a little wedge. Place it behind the top edge of your Sculpey Jewelry Mold to lean it slightly forward.

Cut a 1” square of gold leaf up into very small pieces. Set aside half of the pieces. Pour Clear Liquid Sculpey into the bottom third of the mold at a slight angle. Sprinkle in some gold leaf. Bake at 300F for 10 minutes. Cool.
Add Liquid Sculpey Navy Metallic up to the edge of the clear section. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool.
Fill the mold with Clear Liquid Sculpey (LS). Bake once more for 15 minutes with foil tent.
For the second earring, reverse the direction of the angle in step 2. After Step 6, remove the cooled earring from the mold and place it on a tile. Add Clear LS onto the surface. Bake for 15 minutes with foil tent.
Add jump rings and ear wires. Make some in every color. Gorgeous!
