I’ve always wanted to get my (Unused) palette knives out and try “painting” with clay.  When I saw this glass vase shape, I *knew* it was time!  It was so fun to just let go and let the clay do its thing!

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.
Condition small amounts of each color clay and mix with a pinch either the Sculpey Oven Bake Clay Softener or the Clear Liquid Sculpey. I tried both to see which one I preferred. My 18k Gold was a little stiffer than the other clays, so I used both! I was aiming for clays that I could easily manipulate with the palette knife, but would maintain some body to them. I wanted TEXTURE!!
Make a small ball of the clay color (about 1/8 inch diameter) and press it to the glass, then use the palette knife to firmly stroke it up the glass. I discovered that it is easier to start of the top of your design and work down as well.

Overlap the colors as you work down the glass.
Once you reach the bottom of the section, start again at the top of another section until you have enough strokes on your glass vase.
Before you bake your vase, use a baby wipe to wipe off the uncovered surfaces both inside and outside of the glass. Carefully place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
