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.
Press pieces of variegated leaf into the bottom of the teardrop shapes. Use your fingertip to make sure the leaf is laying flat and sticking to the bottom. You may find it helpful to use tweezers for placing the leaf in the cavities. In this picture I was working on another project at the same time so only focus on the tear drop shapes.
Silicone baking cups come in very handy for mixing small amounts of Liquid Sculpey® (LS). When all the LS is removed from the cups, you can simply bake them and then peel out the residual LS.
Place equal amounts of Pearl and Garnet LS in the bottom of a small silicone baking cup - about 1 tablespoon of each color.
Stir the colors together completely.
Fill the teardrop shapes to level with the Garnet/Pearl LS. Gently tap the mold on the work surface to release air bubbles. When the mold is full, bake following the baking instructions for LS.
When the mold is completely cool remove the pieces by gently flexing it.
Assemble the jewelry pieces as shown. For the pendant piece, make sure the circle connector is secure. Both sides of the circle ring should be snuggly fit into the little connector piece at the top. If one side slides out, bend the very end up to a 90 angle with flat nose pliers so it cannot pull back out. Attach the pendant shape to the connector with a 9mm jump ring using flat nose pliers. Add a 6mm jump ring to the top of the connector and connect it to the chain.
For the earrings, you can either string the clay pieces directly onto the ear wires or you can attach them with two jump rings each. If you wish, you can bend a 90-degree angle in the tail end of the wire so that it fits more securely into the loop.
