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.
Sheet 1/4 bar of Igloo into a thin sheet 1/8” thick. Make sure the Igloo piece is large enough to accommodate two large half circles and two small half donuts. Roll very thin snakes of Bluestone and make random curved lines across the sheet for the background. Press the thin lines down flattening them slightly.
Make petal shapes in Cherry Pie and in Cinnamon and arrange these in clusters on top of the background lines.

Next add a tiny Canary center to each flower and poke a hole in the center of each.
Add little leaf shaped Bluestone pieces randomly along the sides of the background vines.
Add random petals in Cherry Pie and Light Cinnamon to the background. Also add little buds of Canary to the background. Score details in the leaves and the petals with the Needle Tool. Poke holes in the Canary buds.
Use the craft knife to cut out the shapes as shown.
Make two Bluestone ovals using the oval shapes in the template to size them.
Line the pieces up and poke holes using the Needle Tool so that they can be hooked together with jump rings after baking.

Bake the pieces following the baking instructions in Step 1 above.

When the pieces are completely cool, assemble with jump rings as shown.

Glue posts to the backs of the oval pieces and allow the glue to dry completely.
