    Project Instructions

    Your workspace:
    Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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.

    Getting Started:
    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:
    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 15 minutes per ¼" (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.
    Roll the Buried Treasure clay through the clay conditioning machine on the #1 (widest) setting. Place the sheet of clay on the smooth ceramic tile. Press the Design It template – key pattern lightly into place and cut out the selected key using a craft knife.
    Use the largest of the Etch ‘n Pearl tool to punch out the top of this key. (Use the medium Etch 'n Pearl to double punch the top key). Use the heart cutter from the Basic Shape Mini Cutters to cut out to the top of the heart key.
    Place a sheet of deli paper (or plastic wrap) over the key and gently press the edges to round them. Remove the paper.
    Use the Etch ‘n Pearl tool to emboss details around the top of the key. Use a credit card to emboss a line down the center of the key stem.
    Use the pointed tip of the Etch ‘n Pearl tool to emboss more detail into the stem of the key.
    Apply Pearl Ex powder sparingly to the key to help highlight the detail.
    Use a piece of sandpaper to further “age” the keys.
    Bake the completed keys according to the directions above in Step 1 and allow to cool completely.
    Once the keys have baked and cooled, paint on the dark grey acrylic paint and quickly wipe the top surfaces with a damp paper towel to remove the paint from the top surfaces and further highlight the textures. Allow the paint to dry and mount your new “old” keys!
