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® Oven Safe Work 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. BAKING SHOULD BE DONE BY AN ADULT.
Sheet out about ½ block of the conditioned Bluestone on the second from widest setting on the clay conditioning machine. Lightly spray the selected texture with water and use the acrylic roller to help you press the texture into the sheet of clay. Trim to the texture and repeat to make the second sheet of texture (use more clay if needed).
Flip one of the textured rectangles of clay over and position the silkscreen image in the middle of the clay sheet. Use a small brush to daub the gold and copper paints around on the silkscreen. Then use the provided paddle to sweep down the silkscreen, waving the paddle from side-to-side to help the colors blend and move. Remove the screen and immediately immerse it in the tub of water. I take my tub to the sink and wash the screen under running water and use the micro-fiber towel to dry the screen, the paddle and my hands. Repeat for the second piece of textured clay. Allow both silkscreens to dry thoroughly! HINT: did your screened image not look quite right? Quickly wipe the surface of the clay with a babywipe to remove the paint and start over!
Once the paint is dry on the clay, you can use the Sculpey Circle cutter that exactly fits the screen (1.75 inches) ! Repeat for both screens. Remember you have a texture on the back of the screened image, so be careful handling the clay.
Use the smallest circle cutter (3/4 inch) to cut a circle out of the top middle of each circle as shown.
Open your mica powder and press your finger into the powder on the lid and lightly wipe across the textured side of each earring. You can swipe several times to build up the effect you wish. Close your powder, invert the jar and reopen to add more powder to the lid.
Bake as directed in Step 1 above.
Lightly apply a thin coat of the Sculpey Gloss Glaze to the mica side of the earrings. Allow to dry. Attach the finished earrings to the ear wire by placing the large jump ring around the earring as shown.
