Project Instructions

Step 1


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

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 30 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

Step 2

Next, you’re going to want to roll out a flat
slab. You can do this by lying two of the same thickness rulers side-by-side
and using them as your guide to make sure your surface is even. Shoot for about
a quarter of an inch thick. You don’t want to go too thin or it’ll be
impossible to work with, so ere on the side of thicker than thinner.


It's time to create your Skinner blend. You
want to cut your piece width depending on how much of each color you want to be
shown in your design. I cut mine to be larger of the Cabernet and Coastal Pearl
and then a thinner strip of the Sedona. You may have to practice a few times to
get this right.

Step 3

Now use your roller to layer the pieces and smoosh them together so they adhere as one piece.

Step 4

Then begin running the clay through the past
maker over and over until they blend together. Be sure to fold the same way,
lines matching, each time. This may take 10-30 minutes depending on your
desired level of blend.

Step 5

Use the circle cutter closest to the size of
your fringed pieces to cut a circle out of the Skinner blended clay.

Step 6

Use your blade to cut the circles in half to
create two matching half circles that are the size of your fringed pieces. Use
your needle tool to place holes at the center top and bottom of each half
circle for assembly after baking. (You can also choose to drill the holes after
baking with a hand drill or Dremel).


Bake your pieces according to the directions
in Step 1 above.  Allow the clay to cool.

Step 7

Once the clay has cool it is time to assemble your jewelry! Then I assembled all my pieces! And now they're ready to wear!

I hope you enjoy these fun earrings, the possibilities are endless when you use this technique!
