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.
As you condition the Copper SIII, blend in 1 tsp embossing powder to give it a little fleck of texture. Sheet each of the three colors through the pasta machine on the thickest setting. Trim the colors so that the three of them laying side by side is as wide as the rollers on the pasta machine Fold each color in half and lay them side by side with the Light Blue Pearl in the middle.
Press the striped sheet through the pasta machine on the thickest setting - fold first. After each pass, fold the sheet again, like color to like color, and press through fold first. The colors will gradually start to blend into each other where they meet. Continue folding and pressing until you like the blend. If you want the colors to blend more, you may have to fold the sheet a little bit crooked so that the colors overlap each other more. When you are happy with the blend, gently wrap the sheet around the diffuser bottle to make sure it is long enough to wrap the bottle completely. If it needs to be longer to wrap the bottle, sheet it through the pasta machine one more time on a thinner setting - but do not fold or blend the colors more
Lay the sheet flat on your work surface. Cut out a variety of circles from the sheet and remove them completely
Silk screen each of the circles with the Rose pattern using an opaque pearl white acrylic paint. Place the screen in water as soon as you are done to remove excess paint from the screen. Allow the paint on the circles to dry completely before handling.

Place the silk screened circles back in the sheet. Place them so that they are completely mixed up from where they were originally. Turn some of them so that the blended stripes in the background do not match the blended stripes in the circles
Gently press the clay background to the clay circles but be careful not to distort the shapes. Carefully wrap the clay sheet and the circles around the bottle. Trim the top and bottom edges so that the clay circles do not extend over the edge. Make sure the clay is making good contact with the bottle. Smooth the seam with your fingers. This is not a permanent bond of clay to glass, however, it will stay on the bottle because the bottle will not be handled constantly.Bake the clay covered bottle without the lid, following the baking instructions. When it is completely cool, put the lid back on and add your favorite oil and reeds.
