Getting StartedPolymer clay may stain. CLAY MAY DAMAGE UNPROTECTED FURNITURE OR FINISHED SURFACES. DO NOT USE polymer clay on unprotected surfaces. We recommend working on the Sculpey clay mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be completed by an adult.Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay by running it through the Clay Conditioning Machine for several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
Make a sheet of Bronze clay with the clay conditioning machine set on a #2. Cut out 2 circles with a 1" cutter.
Form each circle into a tube bead shape.
Roll each tube bead over the texture sheet as shown.
Use the Etch n Pearl to incise lines & dots on bead. Make a hole horizontally through the top part of the bead. Bake clay beads as directed above.
Condition a segment of Bronze & Copper. Marble the colors together, roll out on #1 on the clay conditioning machine. Using a flower cutter, make 2 flower shapes.
Stamp the bead with a small flower stamp. Make a vertical bead hole through the flower. Bake as directed above and allow to cool completely.
Distress the beads with acrylic paints. I used Turquiose & White.
Assemble earrings as shown.
