    Project Instructions

      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 clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

    Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

      Baking:
    Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.

    Mix the 1/2 block of Turquoise with a small pinch of Burnt Umber to create the Blue color. Mix the 1/2 block of green with 1/8 block of Cadmium Yellow, 1/8 block of Gold and a small pinch of Black to create the Green color. Using colors straight from the package or custom mixing your own colors is also an option.

    Create a skinner blend from the two desired colors. Roll the blend to a medium thickness (1 mm) and 2 to 3 inches wide by 8 inches long.

    Cut a strip from the blend about 1 1/2” wide and set aside.

    Roll a sheet of Black clay as thin as possible and the same size as the larger portion of the colored blend. Layer the Black on the colored blend and roll smooth.

    Cut the sheet into about 4 equal pieces and stack them, rotating each piece so that the colors alternate. Cut this stack into quarters and stack them as well.

    Compress the stack, if necessary, to thin the layers and make the loaf about 1” tall.

    Stab various tools into the top of the loaf to distort and alter the surface. Compress the sides to close up the stabbed spaces.

    With the rigid blade, slice thin pieces from the loaf at an angle nearly parallel to the top of the loaf.

    Roll additional clay into a sheet and apply the slices to cover an area about 2” x 2”

    Using scrap or additional clay, shape a slightly domed base for the pendant. Apply the patterned sheet to one side of the shape. Cut the reserved blend sheet from Step 2 to the opposite curve of the patterned sheet. Apply it to the base form. Add tiny bits of Black clay to the surface and blend them in.

    Place the entire assembly on a sheet of Black clay and trim all edges clean, but leaving a slight tab at the top.

    Apply a thin sheet of Black clay over the seam, extending to the top. Texture this area with the 2 mm Dual End Tool tool. Pierce through the extended tab for the cord.

    Bake at 275 °F for 30 minutes. Sand the smooth sides, if desired. Thread the cord through the hole and tie, leaving at least 24 in. length.
