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 White Translucent to a # 1 on the Clay Conditioning machine. Make sure the sheet almost wraps around your selected votive.
Carefully lay the Gold Leaf foil sheet on the clay. Use your fingers to smooth out the foil. It will definitely have wrinkles in it – no problem.
Roll the sheet through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #2 setting.
Roll the sheet through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #5 setting.
You’ll be wrapping the sheet of clay around the votive. While the sheet is still on your work surface, use the Super Slicer to cut a straight edge to start with. Lay the edge on the votive and carefully wrap the sheet around making sure to smooth and shape with your hands as you go around. When your clay meets the beginning edge, overlap the edge slightly and trim the clay with a scissor, yes a scissor. Now use your Super Slicer and cut through the overlapping seam. Remove the excess bottom piece and the excess top piece. Smooth the seam with your fingers. Trim the top and bottom of the clay so there is a smooth edge. Bake as directed above.
