Original Sculpey is easy to sculpt with. A glaze of Liquid Sculpey and ink over these sculpted flowers creates the look of porcelain.
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, clay mat. For best results, clean your hands first.
Bake on a piece of stiff, white paper placed on an oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275°F (130°C) for 15 min per 1/4". For best baking results, use an oven thermometer.
DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Baking should be completed by an adult.
Wash hands after use.
Mix about 1 teaspoon of Liquid sculpey with one drop of blue ink. Depending on desired shades, mix a second color slightly lighter or darker.
Mix about ½ teaspoon of Liquid Sculpey with a drop of green ink. Dab the green mixture on the bottom/back side of the flower to color the calyx. If using a heat gun, the Liquid Sculpey can be set by aiming the heat gun at it. If using the oven, apply thin enough so that the Liquid Sculpey will not drip and bake.
Continue with the front and back sides of the flower petals with the blue mixtures. Allow the Liquid Sculpey to settle more thickly in the “veins” and at the edges of the petals. Cure with a heat gun or in the oven.
String the flowers on three lengths of leather lacing. Loosely braid the lacing, string two strands through one flower, nest the flowers and pearls as desired. Secure the flowers and pearls with glue and/or knotting the lacing. Finish the ends by knotting the lacing and glueing it into the end caps after inserting a headpin. Form loops with the headpins and add a clasp.
