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.
Take Igloo clay and run it through your clay machine on setting 2. This will give you a medium sized slab of flat white clay. Roll your acrylic roller across it gently to help it bond to your work mat.
Use a clay rainbow arch shaped cutter to cut 2 shapes out of your prepared Igloo clay.
Run a small portion of the Guava through your pasta machine on setting 2. Use your acrylic roller to bond the Guava clay to your work mat.
Use your circle cutter to cut 2 pink clay circles.
Take 3 small balls of Guava, Bluestone, Jade. Roll them all out into very thin snakes. Start with the top of the arch and the Bluestone snake and lightly press your finger into the clay to bond them. Use your clay tool to cut the access pieces off.
Now add the Guava snake and press it into the center of the rainbow arch. Use your clay tool to cut the access pieces off.
Take your Jade snake and press it into the inside edge of the rainbow arch. Use your clay tool to cut the access pieces off.
Use a toothpick to place holes in the tops of the rainbow arches and the bottoms of the circles. You are now ready to bake!
Once your clay is out of the oven and cooled, take your paint pen and draw dots in the middle section of the rainbow arches.
You are now ready to glue your earrings. Take your glue and earring findings, glue the findings to the tops of the circles.
Use your jump rings to connect the circle to the arches. You are all done!
