Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 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.
Condition your White clay. Using your roller roll out a flat sheet of clay approximately ¼” thick. Cut very paper thin pieces off of each of your other colors. Tear small pieces from each color and press onto your sheet of White clay in a random fashion. The sizes of the little pieces can be different and really fill your sheet with color.
Once you are happy with your design use your roller to roll the pieces flat so they become one with the white clay. Place the heart template on top of your clay and using your knife cut out a heart shape. Remove excess clay.
Cut out free hand two notches at the bottom of your heart for the cord (you could also use small cutters for this - the Sculpey teardrop cutters have the perfect shape for this!). Smooth all edges with your fingers. Bake as directed above.
