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 30 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.
I wanted to match the colors in the knobs that I found, so I selected these 3 colors. Take the color of your knobs and home décor into mind when creating your back pieces. Create a 3x4 inch layer on the second from widest setting. Repeat for each of the colors.
Stack the colors together as shown.
Cut the stack in half across the long edge and restack the layers. Lightly press the layers together.
Cut slices as evenly as possible as shown.
Place the cut layers onto another sheet of the Gray Granite created on the next thinner layer.
Lightly roll over the strips to level them and bond to the bottom sheet.
Cut out two circles using the 2-inch circle cutter and then use the largest Etch n’ Pearl to cut out the center.

NOTE: I lined up my stripes before I cut out my circles so that I could match them easier – and it made it easier to find the center for the hole!
Bake according to the directions in Step 1. Allow the clay to cool and add to the back of your knob for a cool custom look.
