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 about ½ package of conditioned Souffle Bluestone on the #3 setting of your Clay Conditioning Machine. Use the 1.25” cutter to cut out several circles of clay. NOTE: I made 4 each so I could pick my two favorites at the end of the project!
arm your Hollow Bead Maker on the top of your oven while you preheat it (or put it into the oven for a few moments). The warmed metal will help hold the clay to the shape without having to press on the clay so much! (A great tip for patterned or textured clay!)I tried several sizes of circles before I settled on the 1.25” circle.
Bake as directed in Step 1.
Once the clay has baked and cooled, use the .03 and .2 Etching Tools. I drilled mine on the two pieces of corrugated cardboard so that I didn’t mar my work surface OR dull the Etching Tools. NOTE: The directions suggest using the #5 speed, I would recommend you try it at about a #3 speed instead. I did NOT try to match the hole pattern in the earring pair! Make sure that you drill a small hole at the top center for the ear wire. It *may* help to gently press the clay down as flat as possible to drill.
Once you have drilled your “lace” pattern in both earrings, just add your ear wires and enjoy!
