- Getting Started:
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.
Mix 1/8 oz. White with 1/8 oz. Candy Pink to make light pink. You can make two (2) eggs out of 1/8 oz. of each color of clay. Make two (2) each of Just Orange, Hot Pink, White, Granny Smith, light pink, and Yellow.
From Candy Pink make little pancake style beads and poke a hole in each one with a toothpick. These will be spacer beads.
Decorate your Easter Eggs with scraps of other colors as shown. You can make stripes, polka dots, wavy lines, and crossed lines. Poke a hole in each egg running from end to end. Bake the easter egg beads and the spacer beads according to the baking instructions.
When the beads are completely cool, assemble with the elastic cord. Tie a knot and trim with scissors.
