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.
Pour the Clear Liquid Sculpey (LS) into a small bowl and stir it thoroughly. Pour back the excess clay into the bottle. Add a pinch or two or silver bakeable glitter to the remaining Clear LS and stir well.

Slowly pour the LS into the star portions of the molds, using the toothpick to guide it into the points of the stars. Pay special attention to the area around the silicone post that will create the hole for assembling the earrings. I push the post down with the toothpick to allow the LS to flow freely around it.
Fill the star portions of the mold with this mixture
Pour the stirred Chromatic LS into the moon mold, again, paying special attention to the area around the post. Use the toothpick to stir around in the Chromatic clay to swirl the chromatic elements in it! NOTE: I did NOT fill the molds to the top of the mold!

Dampen the small piece of towel and place the mold on this dampened cloth and put them on the baking sheet. Bake according to the directions in step one above. (The dampened towel helps to keep the clay from “creeping” up the edges of the mold)
Stir the Chromatic LS and pour into the moon mold. Bake as directed
Once the clay has baked and cooled, you can use a small, sharp pair of scissors to clean up the edges if needed.

Here is how I assembled my earrings using the jump rings and ear wires.

If the ear wire has the wire loop at bottom going the wrong way, just grasp the wire as shown in this photo (both sides of the wire are supported by the pliers) and then use another pair of small pliers to gently turn the loop 90 degrees. Test the loop to make sure that you didn’t snap the wire.
Assemble earrings
OPTIONAL: You can use a pre-heated heat gun to help shine up the surfaces of the LS and really bring out the chromatic effect of the LS and to further clarify the Clear LS so that the glitter really sparkles. (You can even see where I stirred the clay in the mold to disturb the chromatic elements!) Just keep the gun at least 5 inches from the clay and keep the gun moving! It should only take about 30 seconds. Make sure that you have the clay on a heat proof surface when using the heat gun.
