Additional Resources

    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® Oven-Safe Work 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 20 minutes per 1/4" (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.
From 1/8 bar of each color, shape short thick logs. Stack the logs together as shown and make sure they stick to each other well with no spaces between them.
Roll and twist the log to create stripes.
Fold the log and then roll and twist again to create lots of stripes. Repeat as much as you like to achieve more stripes.
Roll the striped clay into a short log by applying pressure to each end and pushing toward the middle.
Flatten the thick log with the Acrylic Clay Roller. Make the sheet a little thicker than the thickest setting on your Clay Conditioning Machine.
Drag score lines through the clay across the stripes with the tip of an Etch ‘n Pearl.
Press the sheet of clay through the Clay Conditioning Machine to thin it and to smooth out the grooves. You can adjust the thickness of your machine to make the sheet as thin as you like. Mine is thinned to the second thickest setting.
Cut out squares using the clay blade. Poke a hole in each corner with an Etch ‘n Pearl so you’ll have holes to assemble them into earrings
Bake the squares following the baking instructions in Step 1. When the pieces are completely cool, add a jump ring to each hole and attach an ear wire to the jump rings.
