1.Polymer clay may stain. CLAY MAY DAMAGE UNPROTECTED FURNITURE OR FINISHED SURFACES. DO NOT USE polymer clay on unprotected surfaces. We recommend working on the Sculpey clay mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be completed by an adult.Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay by running it through the Clay Conditioning Machine for several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
Condition and roll about ¼ package of Bronze color clay into a sheet. Allow the ragged, folded edges to create an interesting border edge. Press the foliage or mold or stamp into the surface of the clay, pressing somewhat deeply. Trim to desired shape. NOTE: a quick, light spray of water will help act as a "mold release" so that the foliage, mold or stamp will lift easily from the clay!
Add mica powder color into the leaves and contrast color around the outside. A damp cotton swab can be useful to apply color or remove errant powder. Bake according to the directions above.
Apply about ½ tsp of liquid clay to the surface, use an old paintbrush to spread the liquid out to the edges. Allow it to sit for a few minutes to level.
Bake again using the directions in Step 1. For highest clarity and shine, increase the temperature to 300°F (150 °C) for about 5 minutes.
Roll ¼ package of black clay into a sheet slightly larger than the design. Brush a light coat of Liquid Sculpey on the back of the colored piece and press it into the black. Trim as desired, leaving a bit of black border around the design
Lay the piece over a dowel, empty aluminum can or glass to encourage it to curve slightly during the second baking. Bake for 15 minutes at 275°F (130 °C).
When the piece is finished in the oven, it can be held in the curve and placed in cold water for a minute to shape it if enough contour is not achieved in the oven. Once the clay has cooled, glue a pin finding to the back using super glue.
