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.
We will just need 1/8 bar of each color for this little bowl project: Princess Pearl, Spring Lilac,White, and Teal Pearl.
Condition and roll each color into a smooth ball.
Roll each ball into a log about 3” long.
Stack the little logs as shown.
Roll and twist until a striped rope is made about 5” long.
Roll the rope up into a nautilus shape.
Roll the nautilus shape up into a ball. At this point you can knead the ball as much or as little as you would like to make it more or less marbled.
Sprinkle a little bit of glitter onto your work surface. Roll the ball around in the glitter to pick it up onto the clay.
Flatten the ball into a pancake with your hands. Then roll over it to make it nice and smooth with the Acrylic Clay Roller. Make sure the thickness of the pancake is consistent. Press down on the outside edges to just barely bevel it to a smooth edge with your fingertips.
Decide which side of the pancake you like best. Place the preferred side face down on the bowl form. Shape the pancake over the bowl form making sure no air bubbles are trapped between the clay and the form.
Bake following the baking instructions for Sculpey®III. When the pan is completely cool, carefully remove the clay shape from the form.
Carefully paint the edge of the dish with the gold paint pen and allow to dry completely.
