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® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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 ¼" (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.
First we need to make a Cornflower/silver striped stack. Sheet Cornflower through the pasta machine on the thickest setting. Make a 3” x 5” sheet of the clay and lay it on a piece of composite silver leaf. Pull the excess leaf away from the clay and store it for other projects.
Turn the sheet over and burnish the leaf to the clay with your fingertips. Push out air bubbles by starting in the middle and working outward.
Cut the leaf/clay sheet into eight equal pieces and stack them up in a striped fashion.
Repeat Steps 2, 3, and 4 with Premo Translucent and silver leaf to make a translucent/silver striped stack.
Sheet Cornflower through the pasta machine to the third thickest setting. Slice very thin pieces from the blue/silver stripe stack. Press each piece through the pasta machine with the stripes perpendicular to the rollers, to the fourth thickest setting. This will make all the slices exactly the same thickness and will make the stripes crackle slightly. Mount the striped pieces side by side on the Cornflower sheet with the acrylic clay roller.
Slice very thin pieces from the translucent/silver stripe stack. Sheet these through the pasta machine to the fourth thickest setting with the stripes perpendicular to the rollers. Lay these pieces perpendicular across the blue stripes. Seal them together with the Acrylic Clay Roller. You should be able to see the blue/silver stripes below through the translucent stripes.
Press all three layers through the pasta machine on the thickest setting. This will thin and smooth all the layers. You should be able to see a grid of the silver through the translucent.
Cut out a 1.75” circle using the Graduated Circle Cutters
Next we will make some coordinating clay pieces in other colors. Sheet Cherry Pie through the pasta machine on the thickest setting. Mount the clay to a piece of silver leaf and burnish out the bubbles with your fingertips. Repeat this process with Shamrock and silver leaf as well.
Press the leafed Cherry Pie through the pasta machine on the second thickest setting. This will make the leaf crackle. Turn the clay 1/4 turn and press it through the pasta machine on the third thickest setting to crackle it more. Repeat this process with the leafed Shamrock clay as well to create a crackled sheet.
Use the smallest circle cutter to cut out a leaf/Shamrock circle. Use the large Etch ‘n Pearl to cut out a little leaf/Cherry Pie circle. Remove an equal sized circle from the leaf/Shamrock circle with the large Etch ‘n Pearl.
Use the smallest circle cutter to cut out a leaf/Shamrock circle. Use the large Etch ‘n Pearl to cut out a little leaf/Cherry Pie circle. Remove an equal sized circle from the leaf/Shamrock circle with the large Etch ‘n Pearl.
After the piece is completely cool, cut out a circle of leafed Cherry Pie that will fit inside the baked circle back. Carefully remove the blue circle from the Hollow Bead Maker. Press the red piece into the back of the blue piece and bake again following the baking instructions. If you need to make holes before baking, poke through the red clay where you already made holes in the blue.
Make a variety of smaller ball shaped beads in Cornflower, Shamrock, and Cherry Pie. Wrap these ball beads in the other veneers. Roll the ball beads to smooth the veneers to them. Poke holes in the ball beads with the skewers in the Bead Baking Rack Kit. Prop the beads on the Baking Rack so they don’t touch the baking surface. This keeps them from getting shiny spots on them during baking. As you can see, I made more beads than I would actually need for the finished bracelet.
When the beads are completely cool, you are ready to assemble your bracelet. If you did not poke holes in the large Hollow Bead before baking, drill them now using a pin drill or Dremel drill. Seal beads with Sculpey® Glossy Glaze on a paintbrush so that the composite silver leaf will not tarnish over time.For all the ball shaped beads, poke an eye pin into each one. Trim the eye pin 3/4” above the ball bead. Curl the straight end of the eye pin into a loop above the bead so that the bead has an eye or loop on each side. Connect the ball beads with 6mm jump rings. Before closing the jump rings, add the frosty E-beads. Connect the large focal hollow bead to the others with a 6mm jump ring. Connect the toggle and bar clasp to the bracelet with 4mm jump rings.
