Gray Granite Premo™ is one of my all time favorite tinting colors. It starts out gray, but believe it or not, when used as a tint what really comes through is all of those gorgeous speckles and not the gray color. This is my favorite tinting combination - Gray Granite plus pearlescent colors! COMPLETION TIME: 90 Minutes to make and bake DESIGNED BY Amy Koranek

Project Instructions

Step 1

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.
Baking (also called Curing):
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake/cure clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking/curing; however please note that the baking/curing 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.

Step 2

Sheet 1/2 bar each Purple Pearl Premo™, Peacock Pearl Premo™, and Bright Green Pearl Premo™. Make them long and narrow so that when overlapped by about 1/2”, they are approximately the same width total as the rollers on your pasta machine.

Step 3

With them overlapped by about 1/2” each, fold the sheets in half matching like color to like color.
Press through the pasta machine on the thickest setting, fold first to create a single sheet.

Step 4

Sheet 1/2 bar Gray Granite Premo™ through the pasta machine to the third thickest setting, or a setting that will yield a sheet of Gray Granite that is approximately the same size as the striped sheet.

Layer the striped sheet on top of the Gray Granite sheet.

Step 5

Press the sheets together through the pasta machine on the thickest setting.
Trim the wonky top and bottom if desired and set these pieces aside.

Step 6

Now we will blend the colors into each other while adding Gray Granite tint to all.
Fold the sheet in half matching like color to like color.
Press the sheet through the pasta machine on the thickest setting, fold first. For this tutorial we always match like color to like color, and sheet through the pasta machine fold first.

Step 7

Fold and press, fold and press, fold and press through the pasta machine several times so that you see the colors are blending into each other and the Gray Granite is starting to show through the colors. SO PRETTY!

Step 8

Here’s a close up of the color blending and the speckles showing. Keep going until the blend is how you like it.

Step 9

I’m stopping part way through the blending to show you something so cool. This partial blending is so nice - it’s not perfect but it is pretty. Maybe you like this look, maybe you don’t. But I think partial blending is always a cool option and adds lots of detail that is hard to achieve on purpose.

Step 10

Sometimes I like to purposefully fold my sheets short of halfway, which adds lots of mica trails as shown here. So many possibilities!

Step 11

Blend and blend until you have what you like.

Step 12

I decided to use the sheet with random mica trails running through.
Once the blend is achieved, fold the sheet in half to double the thickness (as always, matching color to color). A double thick sheet is nice for the strength required for a wearable cuff bracelet.

Step 13

Cut off a piece at least 1” wide for two 1/2” bracelets. Or 1.5” wide for two 3/4” bracelets.

Step 14

We are going to make two bracelets so they can be stacked. Divide the piece from Step 13 into two equal strips.
Roll over the two strips with the Acrylic Clay Roller so they are lengthened to about 7” and slightly thinner.

Step 15

For the ends, I trimmed them with a slightly angled blade. Touch up the ends with your fingertips so they are smooth.

Step 16

Carefully wrap the bangles around a glass or metal bottle form. Leave a slight gap where the ends meet to make the bangle easy to get on over your hand.
Bake on the form following the baking instructions for Sculpey Premo™ and allow to cool completely before handling.

Step 17

Enjoy your new bracelets. Included in this photo is a bracelet that I made by pushing two unbaked bangles together before placing on the form and baking following the baking instructions.
