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.
Sheet out about 1/3 of the block of conditioned White Granite clay. Lightly spray the selected texture with water. NOTE: I like to cut my Sculpey texture sheet apart into the various patterns.

Place the clay on the sheet of paper and use the Acrylic Roller to firmly emboss the pattern into the clay.

Gently remove the stamp from the clay and admire your work!

Slide your clay blade carefully under the sheet of clay to remove it from the worksurface.

The pressure we used to emboss the pattern will have affected the thickness of the clay sheet and made it thinner. To counter this, sheet out another 1/3 block of conditioned clay on the next thinner setting as you used before. Place this sheet under the stamped sheet.

Use the largest of the Nested Oval Cutter Set to cut out your focal piece.

Then I used a small piece of a straw to poke the holes for the silk ribbon on each side.

Place your pieces onto the selected curved bowl to add a slight curve to fit the wrist better. Bake according to the directions in Step 1 above and allow the clay to cool on the bowl before removing it.

Once the clay has baked and cooled, flood the surface with the acrylic paint and immediately wipe the TOP of the clay surface with a baby wipe or paper towel to remove the paint from the top surfaces of the texture.

Here is a look at one of my pieces after it was painted next to a piece that hasn’t been painted. See how the antiquing brought out the texture?

Once the paint is dry, you can thread your clay focal piece onto your silk ribbon and wrap around your wrist, allowing about 2 or 3 more wraps of the ribbon before tying and trimming the ends if needed.
