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.

    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.
Roll out a large portion of conditioned Premo Light Pink clay on the third thinnest setting on the clay conditioning machine. Make sure the clay is wide enough to fit the rim of your small dish.

Mix small amounts of White clay into a large ball of Gray Granite clay to make a lighter shade of gray, this should be the same amount as the pink clay. Repeat Step 2 to make a thin sheet.

Place both colored sheets together to for a double shaded sheet, trim off any excess clay. Roll through a thicker setting on the machine to tightly combine, try not to over-roll the clay.

Gently curl the edges of the clay to make a lip to mimic a trinket dish.

Mix equal parts of White and Pearl clay to create a white pearlescent effect. Roll a small ball of clay and flatten it, roll the flattened clay to meet each end to form the center of the flower.

Continue to roll/flatten the clay to create petals and stack them along each other as shown. Stack the petals to your liking and fullness of the flower.

Slice the bottom of the flower to make it flat and place on the dish to your liking. Use a drop of Translucent Liquid Sculpey to bond them even stronger.

Paint the floral details with gold acrylic paint, I painted the leaf lining and the center petal of each flower for reference.

If you choose to do so, you can glaze the dish with UV Resin using an old flat paint brush. Glaze one side and cure under the lamp. Once cured, glaze the other side and the edges, cure again.
