Getting Started with Liquid Sculpey:
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.
In the bottom of a small silicone baking cup, add equal amounts of Translucent Turquoise, Navy Metallic, Peacock Pearl, and White.
Add a second layer of the colors on top of the first.
Flex the silicone cup so you can pour the liquid into the heart cavities. Fill the large heart to level. As the liquid spills out of the cup, it will marble slightly creating a unique pattern.
Fill each of the small hearts to level with the marbled mix. When the mold is completely full, bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS. Please note this image shows another project that I was working on at the same time. For this project just concentrate on the heart shapes.
Make four connectors using the 2” eye pins. On an eye pin string a seed bead, tube bead, seed bead, crystal, seed bead, tube bead, and finally another seed bead. Curl the tail end into an eye with round nose pliers. String the connectors in line with the small jump rings. This photo shows all four connectors with two of them hooked together.
When the mold is completely cool, remove the hearts by gently flexing it. If there are rough edges around the backs, these can be easily trimmed away with small sharp scissors. Add large jump rings to each of the heart pieces.
Connect the hearts to the small jump rings with large jump rings.
If the bracelet should be longer, you can assemble extensions with alternating medium and small jump rings. Attach the toggle and loop clasp to the ends of the bracelet with jump rings. When the bracelet is worn the eye pin connectors can be bent slightly to conform to the shape of the wrist.
