    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.
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.
Marbleize the clay. Roll out a piece of Sea Glass clay. Grate a piece of Igloo clay into a small pile. Combine the Igloo pieces with the Sea Glass. Form into a small ball.
Run the clay though the conditioning machine on a number 4 setting. Fold the clay and continue to run the clay through the machine until you have a marbleized look. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with Turnip, Lagoon and Royalty Souffle clay.
Use the small oval cutter to cut a series of small ovals from each color of the clay.
Use the slicer to cut a series of ovals in half. For this design we are starting with Sea Glass color on the bottom. You will enough half-ovals to cover the bottom edge of the oil diffuser.
Position the half-ovals along the bottom edge of the oil diffuser with the curved edge pointed down. Slightly over lap each piece so the are touching. Do this across the entire bottom edge. Add two rows of Sea Glass ovals around the oil diffuser. Try to overlap them as you go and place the over the lower seam. Finish off the top edge with a row of Lagoon ovals.
Bake according to the directions in Step 1. Be careful when removing from the oven because the glass will be hot! Once the clay and glass have cooled, you can add your essential oil and diffuser sticks and enjoy!
