    Project Instructions

    Your workspace:
    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.

    Getting Started:
    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.
    Print out the airplane template. Using scissors cut out the pieces. This is a rather large project which may make it difficult to transfer the finished project onto a baking surface. Artist Tip: Work the project on a Sculpey® work n bake mat placed on top of a baking pan. If you don't have a silicone mat, you can cover your baking pan with aluminum foil and build your airplane on top of that. This way you won't have to transfer the finished project later.
    Have an adult help cut the empty cardboard tube down to 5.5" in length. Use the small foam brush to cover the entire outside of the tube with a thin coating of the white craft glue. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly.
    Roll out a sheet of Red clay through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #1 setting. Wrap the cardboard tube in the sheet of clay. Use the Super Slicer to trim away excess. Smooth the seam with your finger.
    Use Elephant Gray to make a dome that is about 1/2" thick and as big around as the end of the tube. Use Red to make a cone that is about 2" long and as big around as the end of the tube.
    Press the Elephant Gray nose piece onto the end of the tube and make sure it is well connected to the body. Press the tail piece onto the other end of the tube and make sure it is well connected to the body. On the tail end use your finger to smooth the seams where the body and the cone come together. Gently roll the entire piece to smooth the seams.
    Roll out another sheet of Red through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #1 setting. Place the wing template on the clay and cut it out using the clay blade. Remove the template from the clay and use scissors to cut out the middle section on the wing template. Replace the separated wing templates back onto the Red clay and cut the shapes out again.
    Layer the individual wing pieces on top of the larger wing piece, make sure there are no air bubbles between the layers. Smooth all the edges with your fingers.
    Place the body of the plane on top of the wings so that the body rests in the section of the wings that is shallower. Position the wings just under the nose piece. Make sure the body and the wings are well connected.
    Make a triangular piece from Elephant Gray for the cockpit area. Press it into place so that it rests half way over the wings.
    Roll out another sheet of Red through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #1 setting again. Fold the sheet in half and roll over it with the Acrylic Roller to smooth. Cut out two Red horizontal stabilizers from the clay using the template. Position these opposite each other at the tip of the tail end. Here, the artist used some rectangular scraps of clay to prop the tail pieces up so they would be in the middle of the tail section. You could also use empty match boxes or the lid from a small empty cardboard jewelry box.
    Cut out the piece from the template that is the vertical stabilizer. Roll out a sheet of Elephant Gray through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the thickest setting. Fold the sheet in half and roll over it with the Acrylic Roller. Cut out one vertical stabilizer.
    Position it between the two horizontal stabilizers on top of the tail piece.
    Roll out a sheet of White through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the #3 setting. Cut out long thin strips of White and press them onto the sides of the plane from the nose piece to the tip of the tail. Cut out thin triangular pieces to decorate the wings. Trim all decorations to fit the plane body.
    Press a small Black circle onto the end of each wing. Press a smaller White circle into the center of the Black one. Press a smaller Red circle into the center of the White one. Roll out a sheet of Red through the Clay Conditioning Machine on the 3rd thickest setting. Using the Vertical stabilizer template piece as a guide, cut out two pieces from the Red. Cut each piece in half using only the front half of each piece. Position these on either side of the Vertical stabilizer. Place a little stripe of White along the edge of the Red.
    Poke a hole in the nose piece that goes all the way into the body cavity. This will allow air to escape the body cavity during baking.
    Bake at 275 F for 30 minutes. Allow to cool completely before handling.
