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 285 °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 285°F (130 °C) for 20 minutes per 1/4" (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.
Divide 1/2 of a package of Green clay into 4 pieces.
To form the main part of the body - use 2 of the Green pieces to form an egg shape. Flatten slightly and with your fingers make it a little pointy at the larger end of the egg shape.
To make the back legs/flippers - use 1 part of the Green clay and divide it in half. Make a coil with each half. Form each coil into an S shape and attach to either side of the wider end of the body. Using the toothpick make 4 toes in each flipper.
To make the front legs/flippers - use the remaining piece of Green clay and divide it in half. Form 2 coils and attach each one on the sides of the narrow end of the body. Once again use the toothpick to form toes.
The eyes are two small Green balls with tiny Red disks on them. Attach these on either side of the head. Narrow the end of the egg shape body again to make sure you maintain the shape of the body.
Using Black clay, make small irregular shapes and randomly place on the frog. Smooth down with your fingers.
Bake your frog at to 285 °F for 20 minutes. Cool completely before touching.
Follow same basic instructions as above; following the color pattern on the photo.
