Additional Resources

Getting StartedPolymer clay may stain. CLAY MAY DAMAGE UNPROTECTED FURNITURE OR FINISHED SURFACES. DO NOT USE polymer clay on unprotected surfaces. We recommend working on the Sculpey clay mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Start with clean hands and work surface area. 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°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be completed by an adult.Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay by running it through the Clay Conditioning Machine for several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
Mixing the Clay Colors Every clay piece in this project is a mixture of 98% translucent clay with just a pinch of colored clay added. This will create a sea glass effect, making it somewhat transparent when holding it up to light. Create five 1 ½ to 2” size balls of translucent clay with a pinch of the color clay for the sign color: Translucent with Wasabi & Cadmium Yellow (Letter E and Beads)Translucent with Turquoise (Letter A and Beads)Translucent with Bright Green (Letter H and Beads)Translucent with Graphite Pearl (Letter C and Beads)Translucent with Peacock Pearl/ Turquoise (Letter B and Beads)Create Four 1/ 2 to 1” smaller size balls of translucent clay with a pinch of the color clay for the hanging pieces and the beads:Translucent with White (Sand Dollar) Translucent with Orange, Cadmium Yellow & 18 K Gold (Fish)Translucent with Cadmium Yellow & 18 K Gold (Starfish)Translucent with Ultramarine Blue (Beads)Mix a large piece of translucent clay with white for the backing of the sign. The piece should be when run through the clay-conditioning machine on the #2 setting be approx. 4” x 8” in size.
Making the BeadsTake a small amount of colored clay from each one you just mixed and make some small (no bigger then ½ in size) irregular rock shape beads. Make a range of sizes and colors. We made 12 beads for our sign but you can make as many as you wish. Take your needle end tool and make a hole all the way through each of the beads.
Use your Sculpey Clay Bead Baking Rack to add all your finished beads too. This rack will keep your beads to bake evenly and will prevent flat bottoms.

After wood texture is done, use needle end tool to remove the wooden letters from the clay panels. Set aside with beads to be baked.
