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.
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.
Mix 1/8 oz. White with 1/8 oz. Candy Pink to make light pink. You can make two (2) eggs out of 1/8 oz. of each color of clay. Make two (2) each of Just Orange, Hot Pink, White, Granny Smith, light pink, and Yellow.
From Candy Pink make little pancake style beads and poke a hole in each one with a toothpick. These will be spacer beads.
Decorate your Easter Eggs with scraps of other colors as shown. You can make stripes, polka dots, wavy lines, and crossed lines. Poke a hole in each egg running from end to end. Bake the easter egg beads and the spacer beads according to the baking instructions.
When the beads are completely cool, assemble with the elastic cord. Tie a knot and trim with scissors.
