Project Instructions

    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.
For this project we are going to make some sandy custom colors. To each color we will add Rose Gold Glitter (RGG), Frost White Glitter (FWG), and Igloo so that all of the blended colors have a consistency running through them which will marry them nicely into a family of colors.

The quantities of each color listed are based on the 1 ounce Premo™ and the .9 ounce Soufflé™ bar that come in the Premo™ + Soufflé™ Multi-pack:
Sandy Yellow = 1/4 bar FWG + 1/8 bar RGG + 1/16 bar Canary + 1/8 bar Igloo;
Sandy Orange = 1/4 bar FWG + 1/8 bar RGG + 1/16 bar Pumpkin + 1/8 bar Igloo;
Sandy Pink = 1/4 bar FWG + 1/8 bar RGG + 1/16 bar Cherry Pie + 1/8 bar Igloo;
Sandy Purple = 1/4 bar FWG + 1/8 bar RGG + 1/16 bar Turnip + 1/8 bar Igloo.

For the cactus we will mix up a new color:
Cactus = 1/16 bar Sea Glass + 1/16 bar Shamrock + 1/16 bar Gray Granite + 1/16 bar Igloo

For the base, use the Acrylic Clay Roller to make a thin sheet of Sandy Yellow. Cut out two of the largest oval shapes from Sandy Yellow.

Press the large part of the torn oval over the bottom of the Sandy Yellow background. Roll over the Sandy Orange to make sure it is laying flat to the Sandy Yellow.

Roll a very thin sheet of Sandy Pink and cut out two large ovals. Tear the ovals dividing them approximately in half.

Press a piece of the torn oval over the bottom of the Sandy Pink. Roll over the Sandy Purple to make sure it is laying flat to the Sandy Pink.

Use the oval cutter to re-cut the oval shapes. During the assembly, the ovals have probably stretched out a bit and re-cutting them will make them look neat again.

From the Cactus color, make little balls and flatten them to make Opuntia Cactus in the foreground.

Add little Igloo buds to the tops of each area of the cacti. Poke holes in them with the Blunt Point Tool.

Add little Gray Granite stones around the bottoms of the cacti.

Use the tip of a Phillips screwdriver to make rows of prickles on the cacti.

Poke holes in the tops of the pieces (using the Blunt Point Tool) so that after they are baked, they can be assembled with jump rings. Here is the layout for the earrings showing the placement of the jump rings.

Bake following the baking instructions for Sculpey Premo™. Allow to cool completely before handling.
