Project Instructions

    Getting Started with Liquid Sculpey®:
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)

    Baking:
  • -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 spine of the feathers in the Boho Chic mold with a small amount of Navy Metallic Liquid Sculpey. Use a needle tool to remove any air bubbles in the mold.  
Use a paintbrush to spread the Liquid Clay towards the edges of all the feathers. Don't go all the way to the edge so the other colors will show.
Add a line of Amber Translucent Liquid Clay on top of the Navy Metallic. Leave as is, or use the paintbrush or needle tool to spread around.
Fill molds with White Liquid Clay. Tap mold on flat surface a couple times to remove air bubbles. Lightly brush a lighter over mold to further remove bubbles. Cure for 40 minutes. Let cool. Repeat steps again with the larger feather, so you'll end up with two large feathers.
Prepare a thin strip of White Premo clay. This was #3 on my Atlas Pasta Machine. Cut a roughly 8 inch strip.
Use your bracelet bezels to measure the thickness needed for each bracelet. Use a ruler to cut the strips to fill your bezel. Apply a small amount of Oven Bake Adhesive to the bezel and spread. Carefully add strip to bezel. Smooth down to remove air bubbles. Cut at seams and smooth.
Spray lace mold with water. Carefully roll bracelet bezel onto mold, pushing down to impress pattern. Cure for 30 minutes and let cool.
Use a small circle cutter to cut circles of White Premo to fill circle bezel.
Spray Mandala mold with water. Press your round bezel onto the mold to create imprint. Cure for 20 minutes. Let cool.
Apply a thin layer of Amber Translucent Liquid Clay to all cured clay. Cure again for 15 minutes and let cool. (Ignore teardrop and marquee bezels in photo, those will be filled with liquid clay)
Apply a thin layer of Navy Metallic liquid clay onto raised parts of the cured bezels. Add a drop of Navy Metallic into center of small circle bezels. Add white to circle bezels for detail, if desired. See photo in step 19. Cure for 15 minutes and let cool.
Fill marquee and teardrop bezels with White Liquid Clay. Leave a little room for the other colors. Add a drop of Amber Translucent Liquid Clay off center. Add a drop of Navy Metallic Liquid Clay off set from the Amber Translucent.
Use a needle tool to drag a line through the drops to create design.
Use sandpaper smooth any sharp edges on the feathers. Carefully use a micro Carver to carve trenches in the back of one of the large feathers. Add some Oven Bake Adhesive to the feather. You can add the feather without the trenches, but the trenches give the feather a little tooth to grip the bracelet better. You could also use an craft blade to cut some texture.
Add feather to thicker bracelet bezel. Use painter's tape to hold in place. Cure for 15 minutes and let cool. If the feather cracks, fill with more liquid clay to cracks and cure again.
Use a pin vise to carefully drill a hole into the three other feathers. Putting the feather on the edge of a tile can be helpful.
Mix a small amount of 2 part epoxy and apply a small amount into each circle bezel for your earrings. Add your clay pieces and press. Let sit 24 hrs to fully cure.
Lay out your earring design and assemble with the textured oval jump rings. Add earring hooks.
Layout your necklace design and assemble with the other jump rings. Add to chain.
