Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. 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 15 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 dedicated pasta machine several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
Condition and roll out a sheet of Light Blue Pearl on the thickest setting of your Clay Conditioning Machine. Cut out the snowflake and set it to the side. You will use some of the remaining Light Blue Pearl in the next step.
Condition equal parts UltraLight and Light Blue Pearl together; you’ll know you are done conditioning when you have a nice even light blue color. Roll out a sheet on the thickest setting of your Clay Conditioning Machine.
Gather the family together to add their fingerprints to the clay sheet. Start with one person and have him or her press the flat end of their fingertip onto the clay sheet as close to the center as possible. Continue with each person making sure they also add their fingerprint close to the center without overlapping the other fingerprints. Once you have all of the fingerprints on the clay place the circle cutter on the clay so it is centered over the fingerprints and cut out the circle.
Brush a light dusting of the Silver Pearl Ex powder into the fingerprint impressions. The dusting of powder will help define the fingerprints.
Pick up the snowflake that you cut out in Step 1 and place it onto your work surface. Gently lift the circle that has the fingerprints on it. Rub a thin layer of Bake N’ Bond onto the backside and place it onto the middle of the snowflake. Use the paint brush to add a dusting of the Interference Blue Pearl Ex to the snowflake. The Interference Blue adds a nice glow to the snowflake. Use the needle tool to poke a hole through one of the tips of the snowflake. Bake the assembly for 20 minutes and let cool completely.
