Project Instructions

Step 1

    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.

    Baking (also called Curing):
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake/cure clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking/curing; however please note that the baking/curing 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.

Step 2

Place 1/8 block of Peach and 1/8 block White on the barrier paper. This will keep the bits created in the next step organized and keep them from sticking to the work surface.
Chop 1/8 block Peach and 1/8 block White into bits with the Clay Blade.

Step 3

Form the bits into a square shaped patty with your hands.
Roll the patty with the Clay Roller so all the bits are stuck together.
Flip the patty over and roll it from the back side too.

Step 4

Roll the Peach/White sheet with the Clay roller to the same thickness as the jump rings.
Roll 1/4 block Peach with the Clay Roller to the same thickness.
The two pieces together should be about the same length as the BIC pen.

Remove the ink stick from the pen and set aside for later. This may be easily done with fingertips or flat nose pliers.
