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.
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °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® Oven Safe Work Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 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. BAKING SHOULD BE DONE BY AN ADULT.
Sheet 1/4 block of Amber Premo to a thickness of 1/8” either with the Acrylic Clay Roller or with a pasta machine on the thickest setting. Sprinkle a thin layer of iridescent large flake glitter over the surface.
Sheet the clay again to mix the iridescent flakes into the clay.
Place one drop of brown alcohol ink on the surface of the clay.
Carefully fold the clay sheet so that the alcohol ink is trapped between the layers.
Form the clay into a long square shaped rod with the alcohol just partially mixing into the clay. This little square rod is about 1/4” square.
Cut little pieces from the log between 1/2” and 3/4” long.
Flatten a piece of the clay large enough to cover the mounting plate on the ring. Carefully bend the edges of the clay over enough to catch the mounting plate.
Form the little cut off pieces into crystal shapes. These shapes are basically square logs but are tapered to a point at the tips. Press the tallest piece in the center of the design.
Add more smaller crystals around the outside of the piece in the middle. Make sure all the pieces are connecting to the adjacent ones. Make sure all the pieces are connecting well to the base. Make sure all the points are pointy and position them as you like.
Make sure the clay is capturing the mounting plate on the ring. Bake the ring following the baking instructions in Step 1. When the Amber Premo is baked the colors will be even deeper.
