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 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.
Bulls eye caneUsing ¼ bar of orange shape into a three inch long log. Make a sheet of White clay on the # 4 setting of the Clay Conditioning Machine, wrap around the orange log. Make a sheet of Periwinkle clay on the # 1 setting of the Sculpey ® Clay Conditioning Machine, wrap around the log. Roll the log so that it ends up being 10” long.
Make a sheet of Wisteria on the #1 setting of the Clay Conditioning Machine. Using the graduated cutters, cut out three 1 ½” circles. Roll into beads
Using the super slicer, slice pieces off of the bulls eye cane and press onto the beads. Lightly roll beads in your hands to make sure the cane is flush with the bead.
Using the etch n pearl tool add a bead core to the skewer then press a hole through the bead and add another bead core to the skewer. Then lightly compress the bead so that the bead cores go into each side. Repeat with remaining beads.
Make a sheet of Orange clay on the # 1 setting of the Clay Conditioning Machine. Using the metal cutters, cut out two ¾” circles. Shape them into beads. Using the etch n pearl tool add a bead core to the skewer then press a hole through the bead and add another bead core to the skewer. Then lightly compress the bead so that the bead cores go into each side. Repeat with remaining beads.
Make sheets of Frost White Glitter and Periwinkle on the # 1 setting of the Clay Conditioning Machine. Using the Wet/Dry Sandpaper, texture both sides of each color with sandpaper and cut out four ¾” circles from each color. Cut a ¼” hole into the center of each circle. Using your fingers slightly bend the edges to make them not perfectly flat.
Bake all beads according to the directions above, let them cool completely and assemble.
