Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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.
Begin by preheating oven to 250 °F (121 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 250 °F (121 °C) for 20 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking 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.
Roll a thick Pink log.
Roll out a sheet of White and wrap around the Pink.
Roll out a sheet of Green and wrap around the White.
Roll the whole log gently until it is smooth.
Use the clay knife to cut several slices from the log. If the clay is too soft and making it hard to cut slices, put the log to the side for a few minutes to “rest”. Letting the log sit a few minutes will allow it to firm back up making it easier to slice. Once you have a few slices cut from the log, take each slice and cut it in half so that the watermelon looks like a wedge cut instead of a circle.
Bake as directed in Step 1. Once the watermelons are baked and cooled, draw little seeds on them with a permanent black marker.
