Project Instructions
    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.
Start at the bottom of the teardrop shape of the Jewelry Mold with a thin White line of Liquid Sculpey® (LS), followed by a thin line of Peacock Pearl LS.
Continue with alternating stripes of White and Peacock Pearl until the mold is filled all the way to the top. The lines really don’t have to be straight, just alternating.
If the mold is not filled to level, you can carefully add White on top of White and Peacock Pearl on top of Peacock Pearl until the mold is level.
Use the Needle Tool to create swirls in the LS. Drag the tip of the Needle Tool through the colors making a marbled pattern. Leave the tip in the liquid while you drag.
Don’t lift the tool tip until you are completely finished swirling the colors. Then carefully lift it out and wipe with a paper towel to clean.
Bake the mold following the baking instructions for LS. When the mold is completely cool, carefully remove the shape by gently flexing the mold.

Repeat Steps 2-7 to make a second matching piece for earrings. If there are any little bits of baked LS that protrude past the finished edge, these can be easily trimmed away with sharp scissors.
Assemble as shown. Use the large jump ring to connect the teardrop to the large metal connector. Use the small jump ring to connect both the large pieces to the ear wire.
