Additional Resources

    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.
For this project we will need 1/2 bar of Peacock Pearl for the background.
1/16 bar Bright Green Pearl for the leaves.
1/16 bar Pistachio for the vines.
1/16 bar Canary for the flower centers.
1/16 bar of Beige mixed completely with a pinch Pearl for the flower petals.
1/16 bar (minus the pinch) Pearl for the buds.
Roll Peacock Pearl flat to make a little sheet 1/8” thick for the background using the roller in the Jewelry Making Kit or your own clay roller .
Sheet Pistachio into a very thin sheet 1/16” thick. Use the Small Blade to cut very thin strips of the Pistachio and place onto the background color as vines.
Place more vines on the background.
Add little teardrop shapes in clusters of threes to the vines for petals.
Add details to the petals with the Mini Needle Tool.
Add a little ball of Canary to the center of each flower.
Roll Bright Green Pearl to a very thin sheet 1/16” thick. Use the Small Blade to cut strips and then cut the strips diagonally to make diamonds.

Add the diamonds to the vines and use the Mini Needle Tool to texture them.
Add tiny balls of Pearl randomly.
Use the Mini Needle Tool to add dot details.
Use the Template Sheet to cut out the design shapes. Two large half round shapes and two small half round shapes. Organize the shapes as you want them to layout. Poke holes with the Mini Needle Tool so they can be assembled with jump rings after baking.

Bake following the baking instructions in Step 1 above. Allow to cool completely before handling.
Here’s a look at the layout for the earring design.
Use flat nose pliers and jump rings to connect the pieces together.
Glue the posts to the backs of the earrings. Allow to dry completely.
