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.
Sheet Canary Soufflé through the pasta machine on the thickest setting or use the Acrylic Roller to make a 1/8” thick sheet.
Lay the Floral pattern screen shiny side down on top of the clay. Burnish it down smoothly with your fingertips.
Squirt a bead of the gray paint across the short end of the screen.
Drag the squeegee firmly across the screen dragging the paint evenly.
Carefully pull the screen back from the clay. Deposit the screen in the water basin so that the paint can soak off or wash immediately with soap and water. Wash the squeegee as well.
Allow the paint to dry completely on the clay.
Cut out teardrop shapes using the Jewelry Design Templates and the Blade Tool in the 5-in-1. Use the Clay Blade to cut out around the outside of the triangle template shapes.
Position the shapes as you want them to go together. Poke holes using the Needle Tool in the 5-in-1. Bake the pieces and allow them to cool completely when done.
Use the white paint marker to doodle highlights in the design.
Use the black paint marker to doodle highlights next.
Here’s a layout of how the earrings will be assembled showing the position of the jump rings and the ear posts.
Assemble the earrings using flat nose pliers to open and close the jump rings. Glue the posts to the back with silicone glue.
