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 15 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 White and 1/8 bar of Red Hot Red, roll out long ropes 6” long. Flatten the ropes with the roller.
Pinch the flat ropes together side by side. Clean your hands often so that the Red Hot Red transfer onto the White is kept to a minimum. Bend the end of the Red Hot Red over the end of the White.
Spiral the clays together into a disk shape.
Make another thin flat sheet from 1/16 bar of White. Sprinkle iridescent glitter onto the White sheet.
Spread the glitter all over the surface of the sheet with your fingertips.
Cut the flat sheet in half at an angle with the knife tool.
Roll the little piece of clay up with the glitter on the outsides. Pinch one end of the piece to a point. Repeat for the second piece as well.
Poke two holes in the sides of the candy opposite each other with the Blunt Point tool. Ream the holes to make them large enough to accommodate the wrapper pieces. Poke the pinched points of the wrapper from Step 7 into each hole.
Dampen the cotton swab with rubbing alcohol. Carefully use the damp tip to remove any Red Hot Red stains from the White.
Poke a hole in the candy with the Blunt Point tool to the hanging ribbon. Bake the candy following the baking instructions for Sculpey III®.
Add a ribbon to the candy when it is completely cool. Tie an overhand knot and trim the tails.
