Getting Started:Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. 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 300 degrees F (149 degrees C) for 20 minutes. 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 done by an adult.Begin by preheating oven to 300 degrees F (149 degrees C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay.
Coat the entire outside of the vase with a very thin layer of Clear LS. Start by dropping a bit of the liquid on the side of the vase, then spread it thinly with your fingertips. If you spread it thinly enough it will not drip or run. Immediately bake the vase at 325F for 20 minutes so that it will go clear. Please note that Clear LS has to be brought to a temperature of 325F in order for it to go completely clear. When the baking is complete, set the vase aside and allow it to cool completely. Next make the butterflies by baking colored LS in the silicone butterfly mold.
Fill the butterfly mold with Red LS following the instructions on the package. Bake the filled mold following the instructions on the mold packaging. When the red butterflies are completely cool, carefully peel them from the mold. The side of the butterflies that was face down in the mold is the top. Clean up the mold as needed. You can rub away excess LS from the mold by gently bending the mold and rubbing it together. This will usually loosen up the baked on LS and then you can brush it away with an old toothbrush or a cloth. Fill the mold with Blue LS, bake, remove the Blue Butterflies, clean the mold, and then fill it with Yellow LS and repeat
To make Orange LS, fill the bottom of a miniature paper baking cup with Yellow LS. Place a drop of Red LS into the Yellow.
Stir the Orange mixture completely. If you would like the color to be more intense, add more Red LS but only one drop at a time and stir completely between each new drop. Fill the mold with the Orange LS you have made, bake, remove the Orange butterflies, and clean the mold.
To make Green LS, fill the bottom of a miniature paper baking cup with Yellow LS. Place a drop of Blue LS into the Yellow.
Stir the Green mixture completely. If you would like the color to be more intense, add more Blue LS but only one drop at a time and stir completely between each new drop. Fill the mold with the Green LS you have made, bake, remove the Green butterflies, and clean the mold.
Cover an area of the glass baking plate with a thin layer of Clear LS. Spread the LS with your fingertips.
Lay the butterflies in the layer of Clear LS with the top sides up. You can position them very close to each other to preserve the Clear LS.
Keep adding the butterflies to the Clear LS as closely together as possible. You can add additional Clear LS to the plate as needed so that you can get all the butterflies on.
Roll very thin tapered bodies from Premo Black. Place a tiny drop of Clear LS in the body area of every butterfly. Carefully lay a Black body onto every butterfly.
Place a small amount of Clear LS in the bottom of a silicone baking cup. Place 2 teaspoons of iridescent glitter in the Clear LS and stir with a disposable paintbrush. This time I used the silicone cup because I thought I would have leftover Clear LS that I might want to use in the future and it will stay preserved in the silicone.
Paint each butterfly including the body with the glitter Clear LS mixture. Make sure all the little designs in the butterflies get filled with the glitter mixture.
Bake the plate full of butterflies for 10 minutes at 325F to clear the Clear LS. I know Premo clay is only supposed to be baked at 275, but it can withstand the heat at 325 for just 10 minutes and the 325 is necessary for the Clear LS to completely go clear.
When the butterflies are completely cool, peel them from the glass plate. Trim the excess Clear LS around each one with sharp scissors. You will find that the butterflies will stick to the Clear covered sides of the glass even though it is curved.

You can even overlap some of the butterflies and heat them into place with the heat gun.
