Project Instructions

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 °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.

Fold the square in half and with the folded side on the bottom, run through the Clay Conditioning Machine. Repeat the same until the two colors are blended. Always fold in the same direction.
Run this Skinner blend sheet of Clay through the Clay Conditioning Machine all the way down to number six setting. Roll up the sheet of Clay starting on the Green side, up to the Purple. This creates a Skinner Blend plug, similar to a bulls eye cane
Take half of the cane and run through Clay Conditioning Machine on the widest setting. Take some Black clay and run through the Clay Conditioning Machineon number six. Cut a strip the size of the flattened cane and layer both. Cut the strip in half and press together with a Black in the middle. Repeat two more times. Slightly press together on both ends and wrap the cane with sheet of black Clay, run through the pasta machine on number six. Stretch the cane to make 1 1/4 inch long wings. Slice off two wings and set aside.

Take a small part of the other cane, reduce to a quarter inch, cut off one thin slice and shape into a diamond shape to press to the top of the head. Wrap the rest with a sheet of green Clay, run through the pasta machine on number six. Cut off six thin slices for the spots on the wings.
Orange and white Bull's Eye Cane

Using ¼ package of White and Orange. Shape the White into a 3 inch log and run the Orange through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the number two setting. Wrap the Orange sheet around the White log. Gently press together at the seam. Roll into 6 inch cane cut into four equal pieces and press together as seen in picture. Reduce the cane to stretch 6 inch long and repeat the same two more times. Cut the cane in half, shape one half of the cane into a drop shape and cut off two thin 1 1/4 inch slices, for the bottom wings. Take a small part of the other cane, reduce to a quarter inch and wrap with a sheet of Green Clay, run through the Clay Conditioning Machine on number six. Cut off two thin slices for the eyes.
Constructing the Bug

Using 1/8 bar of Black Clay and shape 7/16 into a drop shape for the body and 1/16 into a ball for the head. Press the head to the body. Run a small amount of Clay through the Clay Conditioning Machine on number three. Cut out a small circle to secure the pin to the bottom of the bug.

Take a small amount of Lemonade Clay and shape into tiny balls to press on to the body.

Press the Orange wings to the top of the body and the striped wings on top of them, slightly overlapping. Press the spots to the wings and the diamond shape to the head. Press the eyes to the head.

Cut 1 ½ inch long wires and curl the tops. Use two for the antennas and six for the legs. Press the wires into the bug. Bake the bug as directed above and let cool. Glue the pin to the bottom of the bug, then secure the pin, in place with bake and bond and the small disc of Black clay, pressed onto the pin. Bake and let cool and secure the wires with glue.
