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.

    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 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.
Make a little log that is about 2” long from 1/4 bar of Premo™ Apricot.
Make a little log that is about 2” long from 1/4 bar of Premo™ Apricot.
Roll White to a flat sheet about 1/16” thick. Trim a straight edge along one side of the White Sheet. Lay the Apricot log along the straight edge and trim the two perpendicular edges to the length of the log.

Wrap the Apricot log in the White sheet making sure to avoid trapping air bubbles between the layers. Where the lead edge of the White sheet meets itself, make a mark. Trim the sheet just inside this mark and then continue wrapping the Apricot log with White.
Wrap thin sheet of White around log
Make sure the seam butts up tightly. Smooth the seam with your fingertips.
