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 (also called Curing):
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake/cure 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/curing; however please note that the baking/curing 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.
Mix 10 parts Igloo, 1 part Poppy Seed, and 4 parts Canary to create the beautiful green shade. To get even parts, use a smaller clay cutter (ex. 10 circles of Igloo clay).

Lightly dust your desired texture mat with cornstarch, making sure to cover small crevices and details .

Roll your ball of green clay on the mat, making sure to keep the thickness to your liking. Gently peel off the mat to reveal the beautiful texture and check to see which parts of the gorgeous texture you wish to use.

Take your shape cutters and cut two shapes for the main piece of the earrings .

Repeat Step 3-4 to make the smaller attachment piece with the Ivory colored clay.

Poke a hole at the top of each Green colored piece with your needle tool. Repeat this step with the Ivory colored pieces.

Bake according to Step 1 above.

Sand your pieces (I used 400 grit) using a back-and-forth motion as needed if the pieces have uneven texture, excess clay, or small bumps. Be careful not to sand too rough as this can quickly thin the pieces

Glue the earring backings to the untextured side on both Ivory colored pieces and let it dry completely before assembly

Attach the jump rings connecting the Green and Ivory pieces together with needle nose pliers. Close the jump rings. Glaze your finished set if you’d like a glossy finish
