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

Step 2

We will need just a small sheet of each color large enough to accommodate two of the arrowhead shapes from the cutter. My cutter is only about 1.5” tall.

Sheet Hydrangea to 1/8” thick or the thickest setting on your pasta machine.

Sheet both Black and Terra Cotta as thinly as possible or about the 6th setting on your pasta machine

Step 3

Stack the colors as shown.

Roll over them to make sure they are sealed together really well with no air bubbles between.

Step 4

Lay the stack on the work surface with the Black side up.

Roll over it to seal it to the work surface.

Use the Wavy Blade to cut the slab into several sections. Curve the Wavy Blade as you cut to add curved interest to the design. Try to leave all the sections in the slab where they started like a puzzle. If pieces lift out of the design, carefully replace them where they were.

Step 5

Roll the slab to heal the cuts with the Acrylic Clay Roller.

Step 6

Carefully shave the top Black and Terra Cotta layers away as thinly as possible to reveal the cool wavy pattern. Set the scraps aside.

Step 7

Carefully cut out two arrowhead shapes from the areas of the design that you like best.

Smooth the cut edges with your fingertips.

Step 8

Carefully slice a notch in the top of each arrowhead parallel with the surface of the design so that you can insert a jump ring half way into the slice. The jump ring should stick out halfway from the top. This will be the connector for the ear wire. Carefully press the clay around the jump ring to hold it into place.

Step 9

Bake the arrowheads following the baking instructions for Sculpey Soufflé™.

Allow to cool completely before handling.

This is the earring layout.

Step 10

String the clay pieces onto the ear wires as shown.
