    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.
Gather a two one-ounce bars of yellow clay, and one or two one-ounce bars of black clay along with one toothpick, two to four plastic black wires, and two plastic clips or keychains. Set aside the black clay. Split both yellow one-ounce bars in half in order to make 4 keychains, or split just one yellow one-ounce bar in order to make 2 keychains. Roll each yellow block into balls.
Using your fingers and thumbs, flatten one ball at a time into a flatter circle. They should be 1.75 inches wide and a quarter-inch thick.
Take a piece of the black wire and loosely fold it in half. Begin twisting it near the bottom of the open ends, so that you create a spiral, leaving a wider loop at the top. Pick up one yellow circle, and insert the spiral part of the wire into the circle until only the loop is showing at the top.
Use the toothpick to smooth clay over the small opening you can see where the spiral wire went in. Smoothing it over will help keep the wire in place after baking. Repeat these steps for the other clay discs

Then pull the circle at the ends to make it into an oval. Roll a quarter-inch ball out of some black clay. Then flatten it as you did for the yellow balls earlier.
