Additional Resources

    Getting Started:
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.
Select a phrase or words and print them out on printer paper. Select fonts that have large openings in the closed loop letters. Script lettering is nice to work with because all the letters stick together and you don’t have to deal with individual pieces after baking. You might want to experiment with different types of lettering to see which is easiest for you to trace
The main color for my lettering is going to be White Liquid Sculpey® (LS) so I’m doing the White part first. Position the glass plate over your printed letters. Trace the letters onto the plate. I have shifted the plate a bit so that you can see how I traced the letters. I was especially careful with the lower case “a” and “e” - to not let the open spaces close up. Bake the White letters following the baking instructions for LS.
When the plate is completely cool, you can accent the lettering with Yellow LS. I even added a swishy detail in White this time. Bake the lettering on the glass plate again following the baking instructions for LS
While the lettering is baking we can work on the Butterfly shapes. Fill the Butterfly Silicone Mold with Yellow LS. Place a squirt of Yellow LS in the center of each butterfly and then smear the LS into the details with either your fingertip or the provided squeegee. Squeegee off excess LS as much as possible. Bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS. When the mold is completely cool gently flex it to remove the pieces.
After the Yellow butterflies are removed, repeat the process to make a set of Blue butterflies in the mold. Bake them following the baking instructions for LS. When the mold is completely cool gently flex it to remove the pieces. I wanted a third color of butterflies, so I mixed some of the Blue LS with the White LS in a silicone baking cup. About a quarter sized amount of Blue LS with a dime sized amount of White LS. You can always adjust the color to your liking by adding more of either color. Stir the colors completely together with one of the modeling tools. Fill the mold one more time with the light blue LS and bake as before.
When the letters and words are completely cool, carefully peel them from the glass plate. You can trim away any little bobbles or bits from the edges with small sharp scissors.
Paint your canvas as desired. For my canvas, I painted the entire background a blue/aqua color. I added streaks of white while the blue paint was still wet. Then I dabbed white paint around the edges.
Next, position your pieces on the completely dry canvas. When you are happy with the design, glue each LS piece into place using clear drying white craft glue. Allow to dry completely before hanging.
