Additional Resources

Getting Started: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 degrees F (130 degrees C) for 15 minutes per ¼” (6mm) thickness. For best baking results, use and oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be done by an adult.Begin by preheating oven to 275 degrees F (130 degrees 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.
Prepare the frame to be covered with clay by painting any exposed areas like outside edges, back, and inside edges with matching paint. Allow the paint to dry completely.Cover the top of the frame with a thin layer of White Liquid Sculpey® (LS). The LS will soak slightly into the wood frame and serve as a bonding layer for the Sculpey® III triangles.
Sheet each of the four clay colors through the pasta machine on the thickest setting. Cut out as many triangles as you can from each color sheet with the small triangle cutter. If you have trouble getting the triangles out of the cutter, just push them through using very gentle pressure and a ball ended tool.The triangles will be easy to keep organized if you place them on scrap paper or parchment paper as you remove them from the cutter.
Randomly match pairs of triangles together into squares. As you match them place them on a piece of scrap paper or parchment paper so you can easily move them around without them sticking to your work surface.
Next randomly match four squares so they create a diamond shape in the center of each square. You can use the side of a blade to help push the sides together. Match up as many of these larger squares as you can.
Starting in the bottom center of the frame, place the first large square on top of the White LS. Line the bottom of the square up with the bottom of the frame.
Keep arranging the large squares on the frame butting the edges together tightly. Follow the pattern that you’ve started closely so that the diamond pattern is repeated throughout the design.

Fill the entire top surface with the diamond patterned triangles. Trim the outside edges, around the corners, and inside the photo area with the Super Slicer.Bake the frame following the baking instructions.
When the frame is completely cool, rub a thin layer of White LS over all the triangles and into the cracks. This will make the pieces look like they are glazed. Wipe away excess LS with a paper towel.
Bake the frame again following the baking instructions to set the LS. Allow to cool completely before use.
