    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.
Mix ¼ package each of black and gold into a uniform color. Roll this color into a long sheet about 2” wide and on a medium setting of the pasta machine. Trim the sheet to the desired width, at least ½” wider then the cuff bracelet blank. Press a sanding sponge along the surface to create a grainy texture.
Press the strip inside the cuff bracelet with at least ¼” extending on each side.
Press another length of the strip onto the outside of the cuff bracelet, firmly adhering the edges together. Trim the ends and edges clean and press the sponge to the surface to eliminate any finger prints or marks. Bake according to the instructions in step 1. Cool.
Using ½ package each color , create a Skinner blend from black to gold using the thickest setting of the pasta machine. The directions for creating a Skinner blend can be found on the Sculpey website in the FAQ section.
If necessary, widen or compress the Skinner blend to make it approximately 3” wide and thin to a medium setting on the pasta machine. Cut a leaf shape about ¾” x 3”.
Pinch or press the edges of the leaf to bevel the edges.
Pinch a center line down the center of the leaf and continue to pinch the edges to create a ruffled effect.
Cut a strip about 1/8” wide from the blend sheet and divide it into five equal pieces. Form each piece into a ball. You may need to knead each piece briefly to make sure the color is uniform.
Place the leaf on the baked cuff with a few drops of Sculpey Bake n Bond where they are in contact. Arrange the balls in the opposite direction of the shading on the leaf.
Place additional leaf or pod shapes on the base, alternating the direction of the shading and varying the width, direction, and ruffled edges with each one. It may be necessary to add the pods and bake in stages in order to rotate the bracelet so that the pods do not slide off during baking.
