Liquid Sculpey® Rhythm Necklace

Designed by Amy Koranek
This project is unique in that we mold a 3D piece in the 3D Jewelry Mold, and then we add an element of design over the top and bake it again. I think you’ll be able to translate this method into all kinds of future design ideas. TIME TO COMPLETE: 90 Minutes to make, bake twice, and assemble

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.
Please note: the photos in Steps 2 through 8 were taken while making a different project so the colors are a little off. However, the process and the tips given here are still the same for this project.

Fill the half round shape in the 3D mold with Amethyst Pearl Liquid Sculpey® (LS). Fill the cavity as close to level as possible without going over. Tap the mold vigorously on the work surface to agitate air bubbles loose.
Filling the 3D mold with Amethyst Pearl Liquid Sculpey
Place two gold tone double connectors on one of the metal rods included in the 3D Jewelry Mold set. I like to use double connectors with LS because they are securely anchored in the shape and cannot be pulled out after baking. Double connectors look like two jump rings that are joined in the middle making a figure eight shape.
placing the connectors on the metal rod
Dip the connectors (on the metal rod) into the LS in the half round shape. Suspend the rod across the open shape and place the rod in the built-in brackets in the mold.
Dipping the connectors into the filled mold
Use the tip of the Needle Tool to make sure the connectors are in good position in the LS. Bake the mold following the baking instructions for Liquid Sculpey®. Allow the mold to cool completely before removing the molded piece.
Use Needle Tool to position the connectors
Here’s a quick tip for removing molded pieces from the mold. Burp the mold open slightly and drip a drop of Sculpey® Clay Thinner & Softener into the space between the mold wall and the baked piece.
Burp mold and add a drop of Clay Softener between the mold wall and baked piece
Carefully dip the tip of the Needle Tool in between the baked piece and the sidewall of the shape. Drag the Needle Tool along the sidewalls of the mold to distribute the Softener around the sides of the baked piece.
Using needle tool to help release the clay from the mold
Push the baked piece out by pinching the bottom of the shape. It should slide right out of the mold.
Squeeze out the baked clay
Wipe the baked piece clean with paper towel. If the mold has residual Softener in it, you can swab it out with a cotton swab doused in rubbing alcohol.
Clean Softener from clay and mold
Drip stripes of Amethyst Pearl and Gold LS across the baked piece. Stripes that aren’t perfect will look nice here.
Adding stripes of color across baked piece
Drop a few dots of White LS into the stripes. Not too many, we are keeping this one classy.
Adding few dots of White LS
Use the tip of the Knife Tool to turn the White dots into up and down streaks. Push the edge of the Knife Tool directly down into a White dot and carefully push the tip of the knife forward through the Amethyst and the Gold, and then without lifting the Knife Tool, pull it back toward you. Then lift the tool completely out and wipe it clean with paper towel before repeating the process with the next White dot.
Use knife tool to streak the white dots
Repeat to create a rhythmic pattern across the pendant.

Bake the piece another time following the baking instructions for Liquid Sculpey®. When it comes out of the oven the colors will be nice and deep.
Bake the piece final time
The pendant will be connected to the chain with jump rings. Cut the chain in half with wire cutters directly opposite the clasp.
Assembling the pendant
Use flat nose pliers to open and close the jump rings connecting the pendant to the chain.
