Getting Started: Polymer 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® Work ‘n Bake 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.
Mix equal amounts of premo! Ecru polymer clay with Super Sculpey. Add a tiny pinch of White to soften the mix. (Tip: I used approximately 2 oz. to make 2 elves; so ½ block Ecru, 1 ounce Super Sculpey.) Fully Blend & Condition using your Clay Conditioning Machine. With the Clay Conditioning Machine on the widest setting, roll a sheet of the mixture you created.
Using your Oval Cutters, cut the following: o4, large ovals – These will make 2 heads o4, 2nd small smallest oval – These will make 4 arms o4, smallest oval – This will make 4 ears
Roll the following into balls: o2 large ovals – This will make one head (repeat for the 2nd elf) oEach of the 2nd smallest ovals – This will make four total arms o4 of the smallest ovals – This will make 4 total ears o(Optional ) 2nd Set of 4 of the smallest ovals – This will make 4 ankles if you choose to use them.
