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 30 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.
Sheet 1/4 bar of Poppy through the clay conditioning machine to the second thickest setting. Deeply texture the clay with the texture sheet using hand pressure. Carefully remove the texture sheet. 
Carefully smear mica powder onto the raised surfaces of the textured clay with your fingertip. Try to keep the mica powder from going into the recessed areas so that the Poppy color shows through. Cut out two large hearts shapes using the Irregular Heart Cutters. Cut one of the hearts from the clay from the front side. Cut the other heart out of the clay from the back side of the clay so they will be mirror imaged.
Smooth the cut edges with your fingertips to take off the bluntness. Be careful to not smear the mica powder into the crevices. Poke holes near the top with the needle tool. Make sure the holes are large enough to accommodate the large jump rings.
Bake the hearts following the baking instructions in Step 1. Allow them to cool completely. Seal the mica powder areas with a thin layer of Sculpey® Glossy Glaze on a paint brush. Allow to dry completely. Add five 6mm jump rings to each of the 10mm jump rings. Place the 10mm jump rings through the holes in the hearts with the 6mm jump rings laying on top of the hearts. Connect 4mm jump rings to each of the 10mm jump rings and an ear wire. Make sure all the jump rings are closed properly.
