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.
Using a pasta machine, sheet 1/2 bar Bluestone clay to a rectangular sheet at least 8” long on the thickest setting.

Trim away the scraps making a rectangle at least 8” long and 1.5” wide.

Composite gold leaf typically comes in flat sheets sandwiched between tissue paper. Open the leaf and lay the clay across the bottom edge of a tissue.
photo shows as described
Lay the leaf across the clay and lay another tissue on top of the leaf. Use fingertips to lightly burnish the leaf through the tissue onto the clay.

Lift the tissue and make sure the leaf is well attached to the clay.

Carefully pull the excess leaf away.

Repeat Steps 4-7 to cover the rest of the clay strip with leaf. Carefully lift the clay from the tissue.

Here is my clay strip with leaf applied. It’s not perfect but that’s okay.

In order to crackle the leaf we need to spread it out. This can easily be achieved by manipulating the clay. Fold the clay strip in half with the raw clay on the inside and the leaf on the outside.

Crease the clay fold.

Press the clay, folded edge first, through the pasta machine on the thickest setting. Now the leaf has a beautiful crackle pattern.

Trim the clay to a strip that will fit into the end of a flat magnetic clasp. Also determine how long you want the bracelet to be. A standard women’s bracelet is 7”. I like my bracelets a little loose so I’m cutting my clay to 8”. My strip is 1-1/8” wide to match the space to glue it into the wide magnetic clasp ends. Bake the clay strip flat and allow to cool completely before handling.

Glue the end of the clay strip into a clasp. Glue the other end into the other half of the clasp.

Allow to dry completely before flexing into a bracelet by fastening the clasps.

The scraps of leafed clay can be used to make a skinny double wrap bracelet.
photo shows scraps
Wad the scraps up into a ball. Roll the ball smooth with your hands.
photo shows as described
Roll the ball into a 1/4” rope.

Roll the rope randomly in leaf. Roll the rope to stick the leaf securely to the clay and to lengthen the clay to about 12”.
photo shows as described
Flatten the rope through the pasta machine on the thickest setting. To make a double wrap bracelet, the clay needs to be about 14-1/2” long. Trim the rope on both ends to 14-1/2”.
photo shows as described
Poke a hole in the center of each end to accommodate the jump rings.

Coil the strip loosely standing on edge on a baking sheet. Bake following the baking instructions for Soufflé™.

Allow to cool completely before handling. Here’s a look at how the bracelet will be put together.
