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® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (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.
Sheet out a long strip of the conditioned Souffle Latte on the middle/thin setting on the clay Conditioning Machine that is about 8-81/2 inches long.
Use the tip of the VersaMagic petal to add color across the sheet. NOTE: Use your favorite color first! Repeat with any of the other colors you want to use. Set aside for the ink to dry.
Sheet out another strip of the Latte clay on the widest setting on the clay conditioning machine that is about 8x3. NOTE: This part of the bracelet can be made with scrap clay instead of new clay! Position the bracelet blank at the end and near the edge of the sheet as shown. Wrap the clay around the bracelet blank and trim the clay to the ends of the blank as shown.
Slide the Super Slicer blade along the TOP of the length of the bracelet blank. Repeat on the other side.
Cut a piece of clay from the remaining sheet of clay that is about ½ inch to ¾ inch. Lay this strip down the middle of the covered bracelet. Use your thumbs on either side of this strips to gently press down the edges. This does not have to be even!
Trim the ends of the bracelet at an angle as shown. Set aside.
Back to the stamped top sheet: Stamp your main design lightly down the middle of the sheet using the StazOn Claret ink. Set aside to dry thoroughly.
While the final ink is drying, roll out another sheet of Latte (or scrap) on the same thickness as the stamped sheet. This sheet will be wrapped completely around the bracelet and into the middle of the bracelet. This will cover our previous layers! Use the Exacto blade to slide along the INSIDE of the bracelet blank. I start about 2 inches from the end of the bracelet and slide to the opposite end and then go back and trim the two inches. Leave the ends on for now. Repeat on the other side.
I find it easier to tuck the ends to the inside of the cuff and gently tug to tear the clay off at the end of the cuff. Then I pinch each corner and pull down to tear those off as well. Now there should be NO clay on the inside of the metal cuff at all!
Carefully line the stamped sheet of clay on the cuff, keeping the main pattern straight and centered. Repeat steps 9 and 10 to cover the bracelet again.
Bake as directed in Step 1. Once the clay has baked and cooled, just pop the metal cuff blank out!
Use the remaining Latte clay (or mix your leftover scraps!) to roll out a long thin sheet of clay on the #5 or narrow setting on the Clay Conditioning Machine. Add a little TLS or Bake n Bond to the inside of the baked and cooled bracelet. Lay the thin sheet of clay along the inside of the bracelet blank covering the inside completely. Press firmly into place. Use the Exacto blade to carefully trim this sheet of clay to the edge of the bracelet. I like to use my finger to rub the edge of the clay up over the edge of the cured clay and wipe off the excess. This blends the two pieces of clay seamlessly. Rebake according to the directions in Step 1. Once the clay has baked and cooled, seal the ink with a thin coat of the Scupey Stain glaze.
Bored while the bracelet is baking the first time? Why not create a quick matching pendant? Sheet out a small piece of the Latte clay on the widest setting of the clay conditioning machine. Cut out an organic shape that is sized for your stamp. Repeat the steps we did for the bracelet. Use a bamboo skewer to texture the edges of the pendant and to add the hole to the top of the pendant. Bake the pendant with the bracelet when you rebake the bracelet with the “liner” in it!
