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.
Roll a 1/8” thick sheet from 1/2 bar of Midnight. Cut out two organic circle shapes.
Make very thin ropes of Forest Green and place them at angles from the bottom of the shapes moving upward. Whatever we add to the left earring we will also add to the right in mirror image style.
Add five tiny balls of Lilac Mist to three of the stems.
Flatten the centers of the balls with the 6 mm Ball Tool.
Add a little ball of Royalty to the center of each pink flower and set it in place with the 6 mm Ball Tool.
Add round balls of Light Pink and set them in place in the middle of the Royalty center with the Small Etch ‘n’Pearl. Position three Light Pink balls lower down along the stems. Set them in place with the 6mm Ball Tool.
Add little Lilac Mist centers with the Small Etch ‘n’ Pearl.

Flatten Lilac Mist strips and roll 1” lengths tightly into roses. Set the roses in place by poking down through the centers with the Large Etch ‘n’ Pearl. Twist together some Royalty and some Lilac Mist to make a little blended rope.
Make tiny balls from the blended rope. Position them along stems in tall clusters with the 2 mm Ball Tool.
Add teeny tiny bits of Citron around the design. Pierce each one with the tip of the Large Etch ‘n’ Pearl. From 1/2” balls of Lilac Mist, make two organic shaped little patties with your fingers. Flatten them to the work surface as shown.
Poke holes in the clay pieces to accommodate the jump rings after baking. Bake following the baking instructions for Sculpey Soufflé™. Allow to cool completely before handling.
This is the layout for the earring assembly.
Use flat nose pliers to open and close the 8 mm jump rings connecting the clay pieces together. Use flat nose pliers to open and close the 6 mm jump rings connecting the top clay pieces to the 4 mm jump rings. Use flat nose pliers to add the ear wires
