Additional Resources

Getting Started:
Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275 degrees F (130 degrees C) for 15 minutes per ¼” (6mm) thickness. For best baking results, use and oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be done by an adult.
Begin by preheating oven to 275 degrees F (130 degrees C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay by running it through the clay dedicated pasta machine several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
From 1/8 bar or less of Glow make a teardrop shape.
Carefully push the piercing end of the Large Etch ‘n Pearl through the upper portion of the head. Push it in from one direction and then remove it and push through from the other direction. This will help force the excess clay to the inside where it will be hidden. We need the hole to be large enough to accommodate four strands of the faux leather cord.
Use your fingertip to push a flat chin area into the bottom of the scull shape. Pinch this area to a point.
Use the 6mm ball tool to impress eye sockets into the skull. If you pull down slightly on the tool before removing it from the hole you can turn the eye sockets into a droopy shape.
Use the 2mm ball tool to impress an upside-down heart shaped nose.
Use the edge of a circle cutter to emboss a mouth line across the chin.
Use a slightly smaller circle to emboss an upper lip line and a lower lip line on either side of the mouth line. Use the needle tool to score teeth lines vertically across the mouth and lip lines.
Use a slightly smaller circle to emboss an upper lip line and a lower lip line on either side of the mouth line. Use the needle tool to score teeth lines vertically across the mouth and lip lines.
Push little pupils into the centers of the eyes with the Small Etch ‘n Pearl. Then poke a hole in the middles of the pupils. Score little radiating lines around the pupils for irises.
Now this is the fun part! Add all kinds of design elements with the tips of your tools. I even added a flower with leaves to the top of the head. The more details you add, the more fun and authentic your little skull head will look. Bake the skully head on the Etch ‘n Pearl following the baking instructions for Premo!
When the little guy is completely cool, apply a thin layer of Black Liquid Sculpey® (LS) to an area. Work the Black LS completely into all the little crevices like antiquing medium. Wipe away as much of the excess as you can with paper towel.
Continue working in small areas until the entire face is antiqued. Bake the skull again at 275 for 20 minutes to set the LS.
String all four strands of the faux leather cord through one of the black pony beads. Even up the ends.
Glue the ends of the four strands into a ribbon crimp with super glue. Fold the sides of the ribbon crimp down over the ends of the cords with flat nose pliers.
Use head pins and your assortment of beads to make some very small bead charms as shown. Trim the tail ends to 3/4” in length and bend loops in the head pins finishing the loops off just above the beads. I ended up only using six of these little charms on my finished bracelet.
String three of the little charms next to the black pony bead, placing one charm on a strand. Then string all four strands through a colorful spacer bead. Then string the skull onto all four strands. Repeat on the other side of the skull with a spacer bead, three more charms, and then the final black pony bead. Trim the other ends of the cords to your desired length. My wrist is about 7” so I trimmed my cords to 7” and will use the clasp and jump rings to make the bracelet more adjustable.Glue the remaining ends into a ribbon crimp. Fold the ribbon crimp sides over with flat nose pliers. To one crimp loop add the lobster clasp with a jump ring. To the other crimp loop add a series of jump rings with the end one having the tail charm.
