DO NOT USE on unprotected surfaces. We recommend working on the Sculpey clay mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 300 °F (150 °C) for 20 minutes 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 300 °F (150 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay.
Cover a tile with Sculpey Liquid Bakeable Clay – Clear. Use a blade to spread the clay into a very thin even layer . Make sure there are no thin spots that might leave a hole when baked
Pour a bit of Sculpey Liquid Bakeable Clay -- Black/Noir onto a second tile.
Use a sharp tool to create designs with the black directly on the layer of UNBAKED Clear from Step 2. I used one of the Sculpey Etch ‘N Pearls. Make dots, swirls, hashtags etc.
Bake on the tile at 275 for 25 minutes. For the last 5 minutes raise the temperature to 300 . Remove from oven and right away heat with a heat gun. Moving the gun slowly across the entire surface.
Once the clay is cool, use a blade to remove it from the tile. You should be able to see right through the sheet of baked clay. Set aside (once you have admired it!)
Use a small rectangle extruder die to extrude both black and white clay. Lay out in rows alternating colors to create a striped sheet. The finished sheet should be twice as long and a bit wider than your largest cutter.
Cover the striped sheet with paper and burnish gently but firmly with a roller making sure everything is flat and connecting.
Use both cutters for placement but only cut out the middle smaller one.
Use the small cutter as a guide to cut two pieces from the clear sheet. They should be about 1/4” larger than the cutter.
Smooth the cut line on the stripes if needed. Place the cut piece of clear over the cut out on the striped sheet.
Now use both cutters to cut out the earring shape. Make sure the that the cutters are lined up on the stripes exactly like the first cut. Smooth all cut edges.
Place the cutout piece over the striped piece with the cutout and clear, lining up the stripes.
Burnish with a piece of paper to make sure everything is smooth and the two pieces are bonded.
Place the large cutter over the cutout piece and cut down through the stripe sheet.
Smooth the edge a bit then apply one of the extruded black strips all the way around.
Bake again at 275 for 30 minutes. Cool and apply earring findings.
