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 degrees F (130 degrees C) for 15 minutes per ¼” (6mm) thickness. For best baking results, use and 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 275 degrees F (130 degrees 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.
For the cat you will need two teardrop shapes for the front paws; an oval for the head; a larger teardrop shape for the body and a little log for the tail. Make these pieces from Lemonade.
Add very flat spots to the head and the body from Poppy and Teal. Add very thin stripes to the tail.
Attach the front paws to the body. Attach the head to the top of the paws. Roll and twist the tail to make the stripes twist. Add the tail to body.
Make two little triangle ears from Lemonade and add them to the head. Add a little Poppy nose. Poke a hole on either side of the nose and fill the hole with tiny beads of Navy Pearl for the eyes. Add some whiskers with the knife tool. Curl the tail into a cute position.
