Sculpey Premo™ Floral Slab Milk Bottle

Designed by Amy Koranek

This is the second part in a three-part series. The Floral Slab in this tutorial is constructed in detail and then used to create DIY home decor items. Color selection and mixing will be discussed to show how to make a family of colors. We will also see how easy it is to really pack the details into the design - that’s what makes slab making so special and fun - all those glorious details!

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.
Follow Steps 2-20 to make the Floral Slab as described in the Floral Slab Napkin Ring Tutorial.
Use a scrap of paper or index card to map out a shape that you would like to use for the design on the front of the bottle.
Use the paper shape to determine what area of the slab you want to feature on the front of the bottle.
Use the Clay Blade to cut out the shape. Smooth the edges with your fingertips and trim the corners neatly.
Position the clay slab on the face of the bottle. Make sure the clay is clinging really closely to the shape of the bottle and that air bubbles are pressed out.

Bake the clay on the bottle so that the clay keeps the shape of the bottle.

Allow the bottle to cool completely, then carefully lift the clay from the bottle and glue it on permanently with E-6000 silicone glue.
Here are some other ways that the slab can be used to decorate bottles.
Here’s a look at the same slab and the same colors but in different combinations used to decorate a vase.
