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 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 MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.

Step 2

Roll several snakes of black clay along with a few snakes of Citron and small amounts of white as shown.

Step 3

Take your clay blade and start chopping the clay to make small pieces as shown. I cut the clay vertically then cut it horizontally to get small pieces.

Step 4

Drizzle a layer of translucent Liquid Sculpey (LS) over the pile, refer to the photo shown for the recommended portion. Avoid using too much LS or it’ll be unworkable for this project.

Step 5

Gently knead the pile of clay into a ball avoiding mixing the clay too much, but enough to mix around the LS and gold foil.

Step 6

Roll the clay flat with your acrylic roller and repeat Step 3
photo shows as described.

Step 7

Form the clay into a ball and shape into a rectangle to resemble a large clay cane as shown.

Step 8

Make multiple slices into the cane lay them out into a slab as shown.

Step 9

Begin to roll the slab with your acrylic roller to conjoin all the slices, in this step you can also run the slab through the clay machine to get an even thickness (I used #4). If you would like to add additional gold flakes, do so now. *If you need more clay to cover the vase, repeat Step 2-8*.

Step 10

Place the rolled slab over the vase and cut off any excess with a blade. Go over the slabbed vase with the acrylic roller to ensure a smooth finish and get out any air bubbles that may be trapped.
