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.
To achieve the Sutton Slice, push bits of clay into the textured areas of a texture sheet.

Make sure to cover enough of the texture to accommodate the shape you are using.

Press the clay into the textures with the Acrylic Clay Roller.

Use a Clay Blade to shave the excess clay off of the texture sheet.

The excess clay should be shaved to level, leaving only clay in the textures.

Roll a sheet of Midnight Blue to 1/8” thick with the Acrylic Clay Roller or pasta machine on the thickest setting. Press the Blue sheet onto the texture sheet covering the clay areas.

Burnish the Midnight Blue clay to the work surface with the texture sheet on top. Carefully peel the texture sheet back from the Blue clay. This will work best if you have the Midnight Blue clay stuck down to the work surface and you are able to tightly peel the texture sheet back. This may take a little practice but the results are very rewarding.
