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® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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.
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 ¼" (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.
Wrap a strip of parchment paper around the vase or form to be used.
Condition the white clay on the thickest setting of the pasta machine into a smooth sheet slightly wider than the desired height of the vase. Cut to the exact desired width and wrap around the form. Cut the edges and use the acrylic rod to blend the seam.
Use a circle cutter or a craft knife to cut a circle for the bottom
Press the circle onto the base and blend the lower seam. Put a small air hole on the bottom of the base which will aid in removal of the form after baking. Bake this layer according to the instructions in step 1.
Mark a line at the point where the metallic embellishment will begin.
Roll another sheet of white on a medium thickness and apply it on the lower portion of the design. Bake again. Cool. Remove the form. Wet-sand the lower portion of the vase to a smooth finish.
Roll the copper clay to a medium thickness and slightly wider and longer than the area to be covered on the vase.
Brush the entire surface with copper mica powder until the surface is uniform
Using a square or other texture tool, press the design across the entire sheet.
Trim one edge clean and wrap the copper textured sheet around the upper portion of the vase butting the edge against the white layer. Blend the seam and add additional texture to conceal it. Press the top edge around in a smooth curve and trim flush with the inside edge. Bake. If there are any inadvertent smudges of copper mica powder on the white surface, these can be removed with a paper towel dampened with rubbing alcohol.
