Additional Resources

    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.

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.
Mix a half a block each Bronze and Gold clay together at about 1:1 proportions. Sheet the mixed clay out on the middle setting on your clay conditioning machine. Lightly spray your texture sheet with a mist of water and press it firmly into the clay. I selected this triangle texture, but almost any of these textures would look great! Repeat to make two sections of your selected texture.
Use your finger to carefully apply the Pearl Ex powder to the upper surfaces of the textures. Gradually build up the amount of powder on the upper surfaces. I usually just dip my finger into the powder in the lid so that I don’t get too much on my finger.
Use the largest oval cutter to cut out a section of each texture.
Gently fold the clay over and press the eyelets into the top center of BOTH sides of the clay. Use a pointed tool to clear the clay out of the center of the eyelets. (An Etch n’ Pearl works wonderful for this).
Use the needle tool to place a hole in the center of the fold to hang the beads from after baking. Bake according the directions in Step 1.
After the clay has baked and cooled, gently feed the head pin through the hole in bottom of each earring. Add your beads, trim the wire and use the needle nose pliers to create a loop at the bottom and hold the beads. Add your ear wires to the top. NOTE: you will need a 10mm jump ring to attach a store-bought ear wire.  I decided to add another dose of Halo Violet Gold to the finished earring to highlight my purple beads. The paint also acted as a sealer for the Pearl Ex!
