Project Instructions

Step-1

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 through 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.

Baking (also called Curing):

Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake/cure clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking/curing; however please note that the baking/curing 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.

Step 2

Roll a large ball of white clay and slightly flatten as shown on the image

Step 3

Place two popsicle sticks on each side of the ball; this will be the thickness of the bowl. Roll out the clay till it’s completely flat.

Step 4

Mix bits of colors together to make pastel pink, blue, and yellow. Red + White = Pastel Pink, Blue + White = Light Blue, Yellow + White = Pale Yellow. Tare off small parts of each color and randomly place them across the sheet of clay and slightly flatten them with an acrylic roller.

Step 5

Take the rim of your small dish to make a large circle with your X-Acto knife, this will be the foundation or your bowl.

Step 6

Take the cut you just made and place the sheet over the bowl to recreate the shape for your dish.

Step 7

Trim off excess or uneven sides of the dish with your flexible blade and smooth any rough spots or edges. Bake your piece on the oven safe dish according to Step 1.

Step 8

After cooling, sand the inside of the dish if there is an impurity that you’d like to smooth out as well as any uneven edges of the dish. Finish the dish with glaze.
