Getting StartedPolymer clay may stain. CLAY MAY DAMAGE UNPROTECTED FURNITURE OR FINISHED SURFACES. DO NOT USE polymer clay on unprotected surfaces. We recommend working on the Sculpey clay mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be completed by an adult.Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay by running it through the Clay Conditioning Machine for several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
Conditionabout 1/3 package of Sculpey Ultra Light. The Ultra Light can be a bit sticky if its warm, so you might want to use thin rubber cloves for this step! Cut 6 pieces (about 3 cm in diameter) of of one size and one piece (about 4 cm in diameter) slightly bigger. These pieces will be the cores of the beads. They are quite big so it is better to use a light weight cores for them, that is why I have chosen Ultra Light! The beads will be covered with Soufflé clay afterwards, so the will be a bit bigger! Please take notice of that.
Condition and roll the clay portions into round balls and place them individually on bamboo skewers.
Each bead will be formed with your fingers, so it gets a nice organic twisted shape. This is to help form the final shape, that will be slightly different! From left to right:
