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 clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Roll a portion of conditioned clay into a 2-1/2 inch (63mm) ball. Gently press the ball flat with the palm of your hand.
Use the acrylic roller to continue to spread the circle of clay. Continue until the circle is the approximate size and thickness you want.
Roll small balls and tiny snakes of the colored clays and gently press them to the surface of the clay disc. Gently roll these pieces into place with the roller and continue to add pieces as you see fit. Roll the pieces completely into the clay disc.
Once you have your design in place, put a small piece of paper over the design and gently press your rounded bottom bowl into the disc to help create the rounded bowl. Gently roll the bowl to increase the size of the rounded portion and create a lip.
Use your fingers to help pinch up as much of a lip as you wish. I decided to keep mine rather flat.
Bake as directed in step 1 and enjoy! NOTE: if you have a bakeable bowl that you wish to bake your clay bowl in or on 3" tear a small piece of paper to put between the bowl and the clay so that you don't get shiny spots on the clay from the smooth surface of the bowl.
