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 1/4" (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.
Using the Clay Conditioning Machine, roll out sheets of Sky Blue, Turquoise, and Blue on the # 2 setting.
Lightly mist each clay sheet with water. Emboss the clay with the Texture Wheel with the Wrought Iron Head by pressing the wheel head into the clay as you run the wheel over the clay. Make as many rows as possible on each sheet.
Using the Square Mini Cutter, cut out squares of each color. Make sure you center the cutter over the Wrought Iron pattern so it will be in the center of each square. To make the pendant shown, you will need two Sky Blue squares, four Turquoise squares, and three Blue squares.
If there is any water remaining on the surface of the clay squares, use a paper towel to gently absorb it. Dip your fingertip into the pearl mica powder and gently blot it onto the surface of each square. Do this lightly so that you only apply powder to the raised surfaces of the clay and do not fill the textures.
Lay out your tiles in the pattern shown. When the tiles are laid out, use the Needle Tool to poke a hole in the tiles that are next to one another so that you are able to attach them to each other with jump rings.
Bake according to the above directions. After cooling, insert jump rings with pliers into the holes to assemble your chandelier pendant.
