Additional Resources

    Clay 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.

    Clay 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 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.Liquid Sculpey
    Getting Started:

Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately. - Stir Liquid Sculpey® completely.

    Baking:
•It is important to use oven thermometer when you bake the liquids so that you can ensure your oven is at the correct temperature.•Do not microwave the liquids. They must be baked in a Preheated oven at 275 ºF (130 ºC) for liquid colors and 300 ºF (149 ºC) for Clear – Do not exceed baking temperatures.•If your piece is less than 1/4” bake for 15 minutes. For thicker pieces that are 1/4” or above bake for 30 minutes. •If your liquid project has become yellowed or discolored in the oven, when you remake it, tent it by placing either – folding an index card in half and placing your project under it or by using aluminum foil over your project.
First we will make the molded liquid pieces. Place a small amount of Silver Liquid Sculpey® (LS) in the moon face cavity. Use your fingertip to really make sure all the little details in the facial features are filled in well. Then backfill the mold to level.

Fill the star shape with Gold LS. Bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS.
While the liquid pieces are baking, we can make the background color for the pendant. From 1/4 bar of Galaxy Glitter, make a thick log. Flatten a thin strip of Glow in the Dark Premo to the side of the log. Roll the log to seal the colors together.
Next roll the log until it becomes long and skinny, about 1/4” thick. But don’t let the rope twist very much. Our goal is not to create stripes but to create an ethereal background so we have to be careful about how much twisting the clay does.
Next compress the long skinny rope back into a fat log. Place one hand on each end of the skinny log and roll it on the work surface while applying pressure in your hands toward each other. This should thicken the log back up. Again, don’t allow the colors to twist very much. These motions of making a skinny log and then fattening it back up just help the two colors to blur a bit and in a random way.
Next, roll the fat log up into a snail like shape.
Then roll the snail shape up into a ball.
Flatten the ball into a thick slightly domed circle.
When the mold is completely cool, gently flex it to release the baked moon face and star. Compare the size of the moon face to the size of the dome. We want the dome to be just slightly larger than the moon face. If the background is too large for your liking, remove some clay, roll the remainder up into a ball and then make the domed circle again.
Very carefully scribe a line with the 5-in-1 Knife Tool where you would like to cut the moon so it looks like a crescent. After scribing the line, cut the piece removing one eye and one cheek. Gently clean up the cut line on the crescent with sandpaper.
Position the star and the crescent moon on the background piece.
After my initial audition of the moon and star, I decided to turn the background so that more of the cloudy areas showed through the hollow of the crescent.
When you have determined the layout of your piece, gently press the star into place sinking it down into the background.
Position the crescent moon over the star. Apply some fingertip pressure to get the moon to sit nicely into the background. When you are happy with the positioning, carefully remove the moon, put just a bit of Silver LS on the back of the moon and replace it permanently.
Poke a hole through the top center of the pendant with either the 2 mm Ball Tool or the 5-in-1 Needle Tool. Bake the piece again following the baking instructions for Premo.
When the piece is completely cool, add the jump ring through the hole and close it with pliers. Add the chain and enjoy!
