- 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.

Touch the two tapered ends together making cat eye shapes. 3.Shape one of the balls from Step 1 into a bridge as shown. Smooth the bridge so it blends into the lenses. 4.Flatten the remaining ball from Step 1 and glue the tip of a skewer pushing it into the clay. 5.Position the ball and skewer under one side of the glasses as shown.
