Getting StartedPolymer 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.
Mark the line where the top and bottom of the box meet.Glue will not be applied above this line to the rim of the box to prevent sticking. No glue should be applied to the inside of the box or it's lid.The glue helps the polymer adhere to the cardboard.Apply a thin layer of glue to the box using a brush.Set box aside to completely dry.
Tamp the black Staz-On ink onto your deeply etched red rubber stamp. (grey and acrylic or polymer stamps do not work for this technique)Allow the ink to dry
Fill and cover the stamp with Pearl liquid Sculpey. Tap gently to release air bubbles. Place in a pre-heated 275 degree F oven and cure for 30 minutes. Allow to cool.Lift the cured liquid from the stamp. This will be your top design element .
Using your clay conditioning machine condition the Ecru Premo and sheet on the #3 or middle setting of the machine. Sandwich this sheet in a piece of plastic "candy" paper. (this paper will act as a resist) Top with your honeycomb texture sheet. Run this through your Cuttlebug Press or impress texture using an acrylic rod. Separate the textured clay from the candy paper. Discard the candy paper. You are now ready to cover the box with the textured clay.
