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 (also called Curing):
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake/cure 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/curing; however please note that the baking/curing 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.
Cut a 1/2 oz or 1/4 of a 2 oz package to condition. Roll clay to a 1/8-inch thickness. If a pasta machine is used, opt for a level 1 or 2 on your machine. This will make one pair of earrings.

Use a one-inch round cutter to complete your moon phase earring. To start, cut ten 1-inch circles.

Set aside two of the circles. These whole circles will be the center of the moon phase earrings (full moon).

For the next 4 moon phases, select one of the circles and use the same 1-inch round cutter to cut away half of the circle to create a small moon.

Use the cut piece of your first moon as a guide to cut the next three moons so that they all match. Do this by placing the excess clay onto the circle and use cutter to cut. Repeat this until 4 of your moons are cut.

Repeat the process for the remainder of the four moons by cutting slightly less clay away to create a bigger moon.

Assemble your moon phase as shown. The moon size will be smallest at the very top and bottom.

Use a holographic fine glitter or mica powder to give your moon phase earrings a galaxy effect! You can apply this using a soft paint brush or your finger.

Using a needle tool, each piece of the moon phase earring gets a top and bottom hole except the very bottom moon, which gets one hole at the top only. Bake according to directions in Step 1 above.

Get ready to assemble! You will need eight 7 mm jump rings and two silver-tone fishhook or pinch bail earring posts. Use jewelry pliers to attach the hardware and to tighten the pinch bail. Enjoy your “out of this world” holographic moon phase earrings!
