Project Instructions
    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.
Make sure your mold is clean and dry. Make sure the Clear Liquid Sculpey® (LS) is stirred completely before using. Clear LS has a sediment in it that is part of the clearing process. This sediment should be stirred completely into the liquid in order for it to go crystal clear after baking.

Fill the trapezoid shapes with a thin layer of Clear LS just in the bottom.
Add a random sprinkling of little gold stars over the Clear LS. You may find it helpful to use tweezers for distributing the star glitter.
Add another thin layer of Clear LS but don’t fill all the way to level.
Add a layer of turquoise foil flakes to the pendant shape. If the flakes are very thin and translucent, you will want to add more than a single layer to give it more color.
Add more Clear LS to the back of the foil flakes in the pendant shape. Fill the pendant cavity to level. Leave the earring shapes not completely full so they will be thinner. Bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS.
There are two ways to completely clear the Clear LS:

Option 1- While the mold is still hot from the oven, use a heat gun to make the back side of the pieces more clear. Wearing hand protection, carefully remove the hot pieces from the mold. Flip them over and clear with the heat gun from the front as well.

Option 2- Remove the pieces from the mold and bake again at 325F for 20 minutes.

When the pieces are completely cool, check for rough edges on the back sides. These can easily be trimmed with small sharp scissors.
Add the 9 mm jump ring to the pendant with flat nose pliers. Add the chain with a clasp to the jump ring.

For the earrings, cut two 1” pieces of chain with wire cutters. Add a 6 mm jump ring to each earring piece. Connect a 1” section of chain to each jump ring. Close the jump rings. Add another 6 mm jump ring to each of the jump rings at the top of the earring piece. Before closing them, add alternating seed beads and stars onto the open jump rings. Close the jump rings with pliers.

Carefully open the loops at the bottom of the ear wires and attached them to the top of the short chains. Close with pliers.
