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® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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: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 ¼" (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.
We found this fun cacti wall decor at Hobby Lobby and decided to add a pop of color with SculpeyIII!
To begin condition and roll 1/4 of each bar of clay smooth. Next lay a piece of clear kitchen wrap over the clay and smooth out any bubbles.
Using the the mini flower from the Sculpey Mini Cutter Nature set begin to press the cutter into the clay. Applying the clear kitchen wrap over the clay will result in clean smooth rounded edges on your flowers and triangles.
Next follow the same process with the conditioned Granny Smith clay and cut out mini triangles from the Sculpey Mini Geometric set. Place all pieces on an index card for baking.
Next roll the conditioned white clay into a snake shape. Using the Sculpey Super Slicer, cut little pieces. Roll each piece into a little ball and press on to the center of each flower.
Bake as directed and allow to cool.
Using craft glue, attached the flowers to the white background and add the green triangles to the cacti.
