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 (also called Curing):
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake/cure 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/curing; however please note that the baking/curing 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.
Roll out a large ball of pink clay and run through the conditioning machine on #2 setting. Make sure the clay slab is wide/long enough for all the clay cutters to fit.
Take your flower silicone mold and press several flowers together alternating between pink and ivory. Cut off the excess clay on the flowers to make the back flat. You want to make more pink flowers than ivory to make the ivory flowers a nice accent.
**The number of flowers vary on the size of your molds and how big your cutters are, mold flowers accordingly**.
Place both colored flowers on the slab of clay alternating between colors as shown with a wooden toothpick.
Use your cutters to cut out two medium and two small arched shapes. Make sure there are flowers throughout your cut piece.
Take a dotting tool and make an impression on the middle of each flower for every piece. Take your toothpick and poke a hole at the top of the medium sized arches and on the bottom of the smaller arches, this is for the jump ring.
Bake according to step 1.
Use the pliers to open the jump ring and connect a medium and small sized arch as shown then close shut, repeat this for the other pieces.
Super glue the earring posts to the back of both small arches.
