This cute pair of avocado toast earrings, made with Sculpey Bake Shop®, is inspired by the kawaii Japanese culture - anything tiny and sweet. They are designed as a mismatched pair of one toast and one avocado.
TIME TO COMPLETION: 45-50 minutes including baking.
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.
Baking (also called Curing):
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake/cure clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking/curing; however please note that the baking/curing 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.
To make the toast: Mix a 1-inch ball of white clay, 1/4-inch ball of tan and 1/4-inch yellow clay. Flatten the new color with your roller and cut a 1-in square (about 1/8-in thick).
Condition a 1/2-inch ball of tan clay and roll it out into a thin strip (1/8-in wide)
Shape the toast and attach the tan clay strip around it to form the crust.
Add texture to the toast using an old toothbrush or similar.
Insert an eye pin at the top. Set aside in baking tray.
To make the Avocado earring
Mix a 1/2-inch ball of white clay with a 1/4-inch ball of green and 1/4-inch ball of yellow clay. Shape the avocado.
Roll out green clay as thin as you can, cut out a rectangle and wrap it around the avocado. Smooth it all over with your fingers so there are no gaps.
Cut the avocado in half using a sharp blade.
Create an indent for the stone and add a ball of brown clay inside.
Add an eye pin at the top.
Bake both earrings as directed above.
Once the baked clay has cooled, you can add your ear wires and enjoy!
