Project Instructions
Getting Started with Sculpey Bake Shop® clays:

• Bake at 250 °F (121 °C), 20 minutes per 1/4 inch (6 mm) thickness.

Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey Tools™ 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.
Cut the blocks of colored clay into size equal pieces – Yellow, Blue, Purple, Green, Orange, Red
