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 250 °F (121 °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 250°F (121 °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.
Roll a long snake of Blue and taper one end. Roll a skinnier snake of Lime and also taper the end. Make 2 large balls for the eyes from the Lime, and also 2 smaller Yellow balls. Make 6 medium size Yellow balls for the spots on the back of the snake. Make a tiny Pink worm for the tongue. Press the Lime snake on top of the Blue snake and roll gently to smooth. Flatten the Yellow balls for the spots. Press these into place on top of the Lime stripe and roll gently to smooth again. Flatten the small Yellow balls and press onto each of the Lime eye balls. Place these on top of the head. Poke eye holes in the middle of the eye balls with a toothpick. Slice a mouth with a clay knife. Press the tongue into the mouth.
Gently wind the snake around a pencil. Bake on the pencil at as directed above in Step 1.
