Getting Started with Liquid Sculpey:
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.
Place a large dot of White Liquid Sculpey® (LS) into the center of the large triangle cabochon cavity.
Place large dots of Copper Metallic LS in the three points of the shape.
Add more White to fill in the center of the shape and more Copper in the points to slightly below full in the mold.
Insert the tip of the knife tool into the White center, going all the way down into the bottom of the mold shape, and then drag it first through the top point...
And without lifting the tool, drag it next to the bottom right point...
Then over to the bottom left point...
Then back into the center before lifting the tool carefully out. Clean the tool with paper towel. The reason I used this tool instead of a Needle Tool, was to create a wider line of blending. Doing this same technique with the Needle Tool will produce a very thin line of blending.
Back fill with Copper Metallic LS to top up the cavity. I don’t want to risk messing up my design, so I baked the mold with that little blob of extra LS on it. This can be cleaned up after baking.
Bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS.
When the mold is completely cool, gently flex it to remove the baked cabochon. Trim extra blobs of LS or rough edges with sharp detail scissors.
Repeat Steps 2-9 to make a second matching piece. If you drag the tool through the liquids in the opposite direction for the second piece, you will make a mirror image pair.
Use a Dremel drill, pin drill, or spring drill to drill one hole in the top points, and three holes along the bottom edges.
Assemble as shown. Use flat nose pliers to open and close jump rings. Use two jump rings at the top to attach ear wires. Use one jump ring to attach each tassel.
