Large Round Cutter- Approx 3 5/8”
Leaf (Or anything you want to make a fossil of)
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 275 °F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness. 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 completed by an adult.
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay by running it through the clay dedicated pasta machine several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
Condition 3 oz of Original Sculpey and shape it into a smooth flat pancake.
Use the paintbrush to lightly dust the top of the clay with corn starch. This will help keep the leaf from sticking to the clay.
Position the leaf in the middle of the clay circle. Use your fingers to press the imprint of the leaf into the clay. Be careful not to let the leaf move around on the clay while you make the impression.
Carefully remove the leaf from the clay. Position the large round cutter on the clay with the leaf imprint in the center. Press the cutter into the clay to cut out a disc shape.
Bake according to directions above.
