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 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.

Roll 1/4 package of 18k Gold into a sheet on the thickest setting of the pasta machine, or approximately 1/8” thick. Cut desired shape and press it lightly to the glass or wooden form. Bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions on the clay package.

Sand the surface lightly with 400 then 600 grit wet sandpaper. Carve a pattern of lines into the surface at least 1 mm deep.

Roll small bits of the additional colors into sheets about 1/16” thick. Cut a strip as long as the line to be filled. Twist the strip evenly down its length. Firmly press the twisted strip into the carved groove. Lay the blade nearly parallel to the surface of the brooch and trim away the clay that is above the surface. Continue with all the various colors until all the carving has been filled.

Re-bake the brooch. Sand to remove any extra color on the surface.

Apply a pin finding on the back with a drop of superglue. Cover the glued pin with a small square of the base color clay. Bake again.

Polish the front of the bead against a muslin buffing wheel or apply Sculpey gloss if desired.
