    Project Instructions

      Getting Started:
    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.

      Baking:
    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 30 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.

    Condition each color of clay until soft and pliable. This is an important step in this project; soft clay makes creating the bargello pattern much easier.

    Roll each color into a thin coil, about 12-14” long.

    Twist the coils together.

    Push the twisted coils together, compressing the coil.

    Flatten coil to create a striped rectangle of clay about 3” across and 1 3/4” from top to bottom.

    Using the toothpick drag along the surface of the clay against the lines.

    Pass the clay through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #4 setting. Pass the clay through with the arches faces up.

    Using a solid color, create an additional sheet of clay using the #5 setting on the Clay Conditioning Machine. Carefully lay your bargello patterned piece on top of the solid sheet, avoiding air bubbles.

    Use a shape from the Mini Cutter Set that you’d like for your earrings. Cut out your earrings. Use the toothpick to add holes at the top of the earrings. Bake as directed.

    Use 2 split rings to add ear wire to earring.
