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 15 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 little Hot Pink, White, and Blue together to make light purple. Mix some White with a little Blue to get light blue, and with a little Hot Pink to get light pink. Roll small ropes of light blue, White, light pink, Hot Pink, and light purple.
Twist the ropes together. Roll the twisted clay to smooth them together and then cut off even pieces for beads.
Roll each piece into a smaller rope and twist the rope around to mix the colors more. Then roll each piece into a ball.
Use the toothpick to pierce a hole through each bead. Be sure to make the hole wide enough to accommodate the cord after baking.
Bake the beads according to the Basic Instructions. Once cooled, string your beads onto the satin cord to assemble your new bracelet!
