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 15 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.
Condition 1/4 block of Turquoise Glitter clay and Pink Glitter clay.
Roll each color into a small snake.
Condition 1/8 block of Translucent clay. Divide in half. Roll two snakes.
Press one Translucent snake together with the Turquoise Glitter snake and one with the Pink Glitter snake.
Twist the Turquoise Glitter snake together with the Translucent. Fold in half. Roll and twist again. Repeat this process a couple of times to marble the two colors together. Roll into a ball.

Do the same with the Pink Glitter and Translucent snakes.
Wet the Agate shape of the boho mold with a bit of water. Press a small bit of the marbled Pink Glitter and Translucent clay in the top portion of the mold. Press a small amount of the marbled Turquoise Glitter and Translucent clay into the bottom portion of the mold.

Use your clay knife to remove excess clay. Pop the Agate shape out of the mold.

Cut the Silver eye pin to the right length with your wire cutters. Slowly and carefully insert the eye pin into the top of your Agate shape trying not to let it poke through the clay.
Bake in the oven at 275 degrees for 15 minutes. Allow to cool. Paint the outside and inside edges of your piece with Silver acrylic paint. Allow to dry. Use jewelry pliers to attach a Silver jump ring to the eye pin. String pendant onto your Silver chain.
