These super cool earrings are a breeze to make with Liquid Sculpey® and the Sculpey Tools™ Bakeable Jewelry Mold. In the photos you will see that other wells are filled with Liquid Sculpey® (LS) besides the ones we are currently working on. In this way we can completely fill the mold and all the pieces can be cured at the same time.
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.
Fill the triangle shapes with Black Liquid Sculpey® (LS) to level. Tap the mold gently on the work surface to release air bubbles. Yes, I know, we have a lot of wells filled by now. You just have to tap really really gently and carefully.
Drip and drag a thin line of Silver LS back and forth across the triangle shapes. You may want to practice squirting a super thin line on paper before adding it directly to the mold. Drip and drag a thin line of Pearl LS back and forth across the Silver lines.
Put a tiny amount of pepper in the palm of your hand. Use thumb and finger to sprinkle tiny bits of pepper on top of the LS designs. When the entire mold is filled, bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS.
When the mold is completely cool, carefully remove the pieces by gently flexing it. When the pieces are removed from the mold, they will have an excess of random lines across the shapes.
You can remove the excess baked LS from the shapes by snipping it off with small sharp scissors.
For the pendant, connect the triangle shape to the chain with a jump ring. String stars and seed beads onto the head pin. Trim the head pin to 3/4” tail above the beads. Curl a loop into the tail of the head pin securing it just above the beads. Attach it to the pendant piece with a small jump ring.
For the earrings, connect a large jump ring through the hole of each small shape. Connect the large jump ring to the ear wire with a smaller jump ring using flat nose pliers.
