Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 300 degrees F for 20 minutes. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be done by an adult.
Begin by preheating oven to 300 degrees F. Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay.
I am using the White Liquid Sculpey® (LS) as the outline for my kitten face since usually the White is very thick. Test the White LS by squirting a line of it onto the glass. If the White stays where you put it and does not spread out quickly, it will be thick enough If, for some reason, the White LS you have is not thick enough to make a line, try this idea for getting it thicker: Dump the entire bottle of White LS into a paper baking cup that is seated in a cupcake pan. Allow the White LS to sit in the liner for a few hours to leach some of the thin plasticizer out of it. Test it by stirring it every hour to see if it’s getting thicker. Once it’s thick enough to draw a line with, carefully pour it back into the bottle.
Place the kitten face image under a glass plate. It’s important to note that if you intend to use your finished piece for a window cling, it must be made on something that is completely non-porous in order for it to stick to a window.
Draw the outline and all the details of the face with the White LS. Bake to set the White lines so they will create wells for the other colors. The baked lines will keep the other colors from running into each other.
Fill the eyes and the nose in with Black LS.
Fill the face area and the ears with Yellow LS. Do not overfill the areas. If you fill a small amount at a time, you will see the liquids spread and you probably won’t need as much liquid as you might think.
Add Red LS to the ears. If there are any air bubbles that are not popping on their own, pop them carefully with the pointed tool. Bake the kitten face on the glass plate following the baking instructions for LS. When the piece is completely cool, carefully peel it from the glass and apply it to a clean window.
