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.
Measure your wrist and determine how long you would like your bangle to be. My finished bangle is actually adjustable via the extra jump rings I put on one end, so your measurement doesn’t have to be perfect. My wrist is right around 7”, so I’m making the liquid part of my design 7” long and I’ll use the adjustability from the findings to fit it to my wrist. Lay your glass baking dish on top of a piece of lined paper so that you can see the lines through the glass. This will give you some guidelines for your doodling. Gently stir each color of Liquid Sculpey. Place eight dots of Pearl Liquid Sculpey® (LS) in a row approximately 1” apart following the lines below. Designer’s Note - For some reason, I didn’t continue using the paper beneath the glass dish, but I should have. Leaving the paper under the glass will give you guidelines to follow so that you can keep the elements of your design even.
Next, loop the dots together above and below making a chain design
Place a smaller dot of Silver LS on top of each of the Pearl dots. Draw a straight line of Silver LS through each link connecting the Pearl dots. Fill in the top half of the chain links with Peacock Pearl LS. Fill in the bottom half of the chain links with Rose Gold LS. Trace all the way around the outside with another line of Pearl LS leaving a 1/8” gap between the new line and the original chain link line. Fill in the top gap with Rose Gold LS. Fill in the bottom gap with Peacock Pearl LS.
Next we will marble the colors together to make a cool pattern. Place the tip of the Needle Tool into the far left Silver LS dot and touching the glass pan under the LS. Without lifting the tip of the tool, drag it up and down through each of the circle designs until you have dragged the pattern all the way to the Silver LS dot on the far right. Allowing the tip of the needle tool to touch the glass constantly will create a double sided pattern which you can see later after it’s baked.
Bake the liquid bracelet on the glass pan following the baking instructions for Liquid Sculpey. When the glass is completely cool, carefully peel the design off of the glass. Using the eyelet punch, punch one hole in each end of the bracelet leaving at least 1/8” of space from the end for strength. Set an eyelet in each of the holes with the setter and hammer. Make an adjustable end alternating three 6mm jump rings with two 3mm jump rings. Add a little charm to the end to give it some weight. Attach the lobster clasp to the other end with the remaining two 6mm jump rings
Flip the bracelet over and you’ll see that it is pretty enough to wear either way
