Project Instructions
    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® Oven Safe Work Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured Liquid Polymer Clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately. - Stir Liquid Sculpey® completely. Thin with Sculpey® Liquid Clay Softener as needed - Wash hands after use (we have found that baby wipes work best)

•It is important to use oven thermometer when you bake the liquids so that you can ensure your oven is at the correct temperature.•Do not microwave the liquids. They must be baked in a Preheated oven at 275 ºF (130 ºC) for liquid colors and 300 ºF (149 ºC) for Clear – Do not exceed baking temperatures.•If your piece is less than 1/4” bake for 15 minutes. For thicker pieces that are 1/4” or above bake for 30 minutes. •If your liquid project has become yellowed or discolored in the oven, when you remake it, tent it by placing either – folding an index card in half and placing your project under it or by using aluminum foil over your project.
Open each bottle of Liquid Sculpey® (LS) and stir each color with one of the tools. Clean the tools with paper towel after each color. Replace the caps on the bottles of LS.

First drip little drops of Black LS into the bottom of the open oval shape in the Silicone Jewelry Mold. Make sure the drips are very random, uneven in size and shape, and leave spaces between them for the Amber to show through.
Back fill the shape with Translucent Amber LS until it is filled flush to the surface. Very carefully, tap the mold on the work surface to release air bubbles.
Bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS. When the mold is completely cool, flex it gently to release the oval shape.

Repeat Steps 2-4 to make a second oval shape.
Trim away any little excess drips from the edges of the ovals to make sure they are nice and neat. Trim with sharp scissors or a craft knife.
If you like, you can use a heat gun to make the Amber color deeper. Turn the heat gun on HI. Wave the heat back and forth or in circles over the pieces at a distance of 4”-6”. When the color goes darker and the surface turns shiny, turn off the heat.
Finish each piece with ear wires attaching them with jump rings.
