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 Liquid Polymer Clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately. - Stir Liquid Sculpey® completely. Thin with Sculpey® Liquid Clay Softener as needed - Wash hands after use (we have found that baby wipes work best)
•It is important to use oven thermometer when you bake the liquids so that you can ensure your oven is at the correct temperature.•Do not microwave the liquids. They must be baked in a Preheated oven at 275 ºF (130 ºC) for liquid colors and 300 ºF (149 ºC) for Clear – Do not exceed baking temperatures.•If your piece is less than 1/4” bake for 15 minutes. For thicker pieces that are 1/4” or above bake for 30 minutes. •If your liquid project has become yellowed or discolored in the oven, when you remake it, tent it by placing either – folding an index card in half and placing your project under it or by using aluminum foil over your project.
Fill the bottom 1/3 of the bullet shape in the 3D Jewelry Mold with Gold Liquid Sculpey (LS). Tap the mold on the work surface to release air bubbles.
Use the tip of one of the Etch ‘n Pearls inserted all the way through the Gold LS to make absolutely sure that there is not an air bubble in the very tip of the bullet shape. The bullet shape has a beautifully crafted point and you want this to show in your finished piece. By inserting the tool all the way down into the tip you ensure that the LS is filling the point. Withdraw the tool and wipe away excess from the tool with paper towel.
Add a layer of Peacock Pearl LS next on top of the Gold LS. Use the flat shaped scoop tool to carefully push some of the Peacock Pearl LS into the Gold LS around the edges. Clean the tool with paper towel.
Fill with more Peacock Pearl LS to fill the mold 2/3 full. Tap the mold on the work surface again to release air bubbles.
Next add a layer of Bronze LS. Use the flat shaped scoop tool to carefully push the Bronze LS into the Peacock Pearl LS creating a blended area all along the edges. Remove the tool and wipe it clean with paper towel. Back fill the mold completely with Bronze LS. Tap the mold on the work surface again to release air bubbles.
For the finding attachment I have chosen an oval shaped jump ring.
Slide the jump ring onto one of the rods that is provided with the 3D Mold.
Carefully dip the jump ring into the Bronze LS bullet shape. Position the rod into the little raised brackets that are built into the mold. These little brackets will hold the rod perfectly in line with the Bullet Shape while the piece bakes. Bake the mold following the baking instructions.
Determine which side of the baked piece you will call the front. If you wish, you can bring out the depth of the colors by hitting the piece with a little more heat. Place the piece on a heat proof surface and turn the heat gun onto high. Move the heat over the front of the piece at a distance of 4”-6” constantly moving the heat blast in a circular motion. You will see the piece go very shiny and glossy when it has reached maximum gloss. Turn off the heat gun immediately so you don’t burn the piece. Using a heat gun can definitely take some practice. Add a jump ring to the oval ring that was baked into the clay piece. Attach the same jump ring to the loop of the toggle set. Attach a jump ring to each of the ends of the chain. Connect one of the jump rings to the toggle and the other to the loop. Close all the jump rings with flat nose jewelry pliers.
