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.
From 1/4 bar of Ecru, make a little sheet 1/8” thick with the Clay Roller. Make sure the sheet is large enough to accommodate two of the Moroccan shapes in the mold.
Make small sheet of Ecru that will fit 2 of the shapes in the mold
Pinch large randomly sized bits of clay from the side of the White bar and press them flat to the Ecru sheet. Roll over the bits with the Clay Roller to make them flat.
pinch bit of White clay and press to Ecru. Roll flat.
Use a Clay Blade to shave long thin pieces of Slate from the bar and press them to the sheet. Roll again to flatten.
Shave long thin pieces of Slate and press to sheet.  Roll flat.
Pinch smaller random bits from the side of the Gray Granite bar and press them to the sheet. Roll again.

Cut triangular shaped pieces out of the sheet that are roughly the size of the Moroccan shape in the mold. Here I’m showing you that my triangle size completely covers the mold shape.
Cut our triangular pieces of sheet that roughly fit Moroccan shape.
Pinch a long skinny point in one tip of the triangle shaped clay. Flip the clay over so that the pattern is facing into the mold and push the pinched point into the tip of the Moroccan shape first.
PInch a long skiny point in tip of triangle, push point into tip
Push the clay piece firmly into the mold allowing the excess to pile up around the bottom edge.
Fold the excess over into the mold to help fill up the shape to level. If necessary, take more bits from your terrazzo clay and fill the mold full to level.
Fold excess over into mold to fill it.
You can bake your clay piece right in the mold if you wish, but I am going to de-mold my first shape so that I can fill the mold and bake both earring pieces at the same time. To preserve the nice finish that this mold gives to the clay I am going to de-mold it like this: Press the clay side of the mold firmly to the work surface with your thumb.
Flip mold over and press with thumb to help stick clay to work surface
When you feel that the clay has “stuck” to the work surface, carefully peel the mold back leaving the clay piece on your work surface.
Peel the mold back leaving clay  piece on work surface.
As I mentioned before, this mold leaves a really nice finish to the surface of the clay. That’s because the mold is polished. From here on out, I am careful to not scar the surface of the clay when touching it.
This mold leaves really nice finish to surface.
Repeat Steps 7-13 to make a second earring piece. Carefully decide where to poke a hole in the clay pieces with the Needle Tool so that the holes in the clay line up with the holes in the metal sticks if you are using them.

Bake the pieces following the baking instructions for Sculpey Premo™.
Repeat steps 7-13. Poke holes to line up with metal sticks. Bake.
Here’s a look at how the earring will be assembled with the ear wire, jump rings, and the stick.
Use flat nose pliers to assemble the pieces.
