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.
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 out a 1/2 bar of each color through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the widest setting to make sheets.
Stack the sheets of clay in this order starting with the bottom color- Pearl, Wasabi, Slate, Pomegranate. Run the stack through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the widest setting. Cut the stack in half and stack again. Run through the Clay Conditioning Machine again. Repeat this step two more times.
Lightly mist the Dots Design Block Tool and press into the surface of the stacked clay. Hold the Super Slicer almost parallel to the textured surface of clay. Carefully cut slices that are about 1/16” thick.
Roll out a sheet of Pomegranate on widest setting. Add texture with sandpaper. Use the Flexible Super Slicer, curve the blade and cut out 8 pointed oval shapes, about 2 1/4” x 1 1/4”.
Cut out 8 smaller pointed oval shapes from the textured dot slices, about 1 5/8” x 1”.
Press the smaller oval shapes onto the Pomegranate oval shapes.
Press the oval shapes on to the votive holder in a staggering pattern.
Roll out a sheet of Wasabi through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the thickest setting. Use the circle cutters to cut out various size disks. Place these cut outs in between the oval shapes on the glass votive alternating sizes. Use as many as you want.
Bake the clay shapes on the glass according to the directions above and allow to cool. If the clay pieces are loose after baking you can add some clear, fast drying glue to help them adhere.
