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.
Place glass in the preheated oven for at least 15 minutes. By preheating the glass that we are working on, the liquids will keep from spreading and be more controlled into the shapes that we want.
While the glass is preheating, remove the caps from the bottles of Liquid Sculpey® (LS) and stir each one with the knife tool. Clean tool with paper towel between each color. The Clear LS will probably have a lump of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Mix this lump in completely to the liquid. Replace the caps on the bottles.
Carefully remove the hot glass from the preheated oven with oven mitts. While the glass is warm, drop just a little lump of each one of the liquid colors onto the glass. Immediately bake the liquid lumps on the glass following the baking instructions for LS.
When the glass is cool, carefully peel each little lump off of the glass. You will notice that the side of the liquid that was touching the glass will be perfectly flat while the top of the piece is slightly domed. Flip each piece over so that the flat side is now up. Carefully drip small amounts of the matching liquid color on the flat sides matching the base shape as closely as possible.
Bake again following the baking instructions for LS.
When the pieces are completely cool, you will have perfectly shaped little imperfect pebbles. See how nicely they look side by side with their random shapes. Drill or poke a hole right through the flat center of each pebble with either the needle tool, Dremel drill, or pin drill.
String the pebbles and the spacer beads onto the eye pin as shown. Curl a second eye loop into the end of the eye pin to secure both ends.
Attach a jump ring to each end of the pebble section with flat nose pliers.
Fold each 6” piece of faux leather cord in half. String one cord half way onto each jump ring.
Secure both ends of one cord together inside a ribbon crimp with super glue gel. Secure both ends of the second cord together inside a ribbon crimp with super glue gel as well.
Add jump rings to each ribbon crimp.
Open a jump ring and add a lobster claw to one side of the cord.
On the other side of the cord, open the jump ring and add the tail chain to make the bracelet adjustable.
