Techniques for Making Polymer Clay Jewelry
Sculpey® Kits for making jewelry have everything you need to create beautiful pieces. For some, making polymer clay jewelry may be preferred over other claying techniques. On the other hand, you may be completely new to the art of jewelry making and want to know more about how to work with clay.
Polymer clay is one of the most affordable, versatile jewelry-making materials you can find. It can resemble just about any other jewelry-making compound and can easily be combined with other jewelry supplies, including metal, wood, fibers, resin and wire. Because it's so easily molded and durable when cured and sealed, polymer clay is ideal for jewelry making. To get stunning, durable jewelry pieces, it's important to learn the five essential processes involved in making polymer clay jewelry:
Before you can start crafting, you must condition your polymer clay to make it softer and easier to work with. To condition clay:
- Use your hands to knead the clay until it's narrow enough to pass through a pasta machine. If you don't own a pasta machine specially designed for polymer clay, you can also use a rolling pin to fold and re-roll the clay repeatedly.
- Condition light shades first before moving on to darker ones.
- Clean your hands with baby wipes between colors to prevent accidental transfer and keep your shades distinct.
Sculpey® polymer clay embodies various color palettes and features. If you'd like to mix colors, use the same process you use to condition the clay. Combine two or more shades and blend until you achieve the desired color, using your hands to mimic the conditioning process.
3. Forming and Shaping
Now for the fun part! Before shaping your polymer clay jewelry pieces, make sure you have a clean, flat working surface. Wax paper and ceramic tiles are ideal. You can carve clay, mold it, weave it, layer it, ruffle it, coil it, stamp it and texture it.
You will need an oven to harden and preserve your polymer clay jewelry creations. Bake your clay on a ceramic tile, metal pan, parchment paper or the Sculpey Oven-Safe Work Mat. Always follow the baking instructions on your Sculpey® Kit instructions or clay package and use an oven thermometer to ensure you're baking at the correct temperature.
