Additional Resources

    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® 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 30 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.
First we will mix the colors. I find it gives better results if you do that in a mixing palette and then fill your clay in the mold. Use the smaller drop shapes for your rain drops. First use the colors from the bottles and then mix your own colors.TIP: Red and black liquid clay are very strong. Start with mixing in only small amounts! You can add more later if the color is not what you want. Use white and black to make your colors lighter or darker.TIP: I like to use the cabochon mold for mixing my liquid clay colors! When I am done with my project and have only little amounts of clay in the mold, I can put the mold in the oven with my project. When the clay in the palette is cured it is very easy to clean the mixing palette!
Cure the rain drops at 285 °F /140 °C for 15 minutes. Do this step repeatedly until you have enough rain drops for your cloud! I used 12 rain drops for my cloud ( see above!).
Condition both of the Soufflé Igloo packs and roll them out at the thickest setting of your clay conditioning machine. Place the cut out cloud template on top and trace the outline with a small craft knife or exacto knife.
Place the cloud on a tile and cut out the holes for the drops and two at the top for the hanging of your cloud. Cure the cloud at 275 °F (130 °C) for 30 minutes. When cooled completely you can add your rain drops!
Attach one jump ring to each drop. Cut a piece of chain for each rain drop. Fix the drops at one end of that piece and go through one of the holes at the bottom of your cloud. Attach a jump ring at the chain to keep it from slipping out of the hole. Attach all of the rain drops like this. Add a piece of chain to the top holes and attach two jump rings at the back of your cloud to the chain to keep it from sliding out of the holes.
