liquid sculpey® splatter frame

Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. When working with liquid clay, be sure to protect your working surface with wax paper, metal baking sheet or disposable foil.
Step 1

Sand rough edges from the frame with sandpaper.

Step 2
Remove the caps from each liquid clay bottle. Stir each with one of the tools and clean the tool with paper towel after each bottle is stirred. The clear liquid clay will have a lump of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Stir this lump completely into the liquid. Clean the tool with paper towel. Replace the caps to each bottle.
TIP: Wash hands after use with soap and water or baby wipes.
Step 3
Squirt a puddle of black liquid clay onto a piece of scrap (or deli) paper. Wad up one of the sheets of aluminum foil into a loose ball.
TIP: Aluminum foil works well because it is stiff and makes a totally random surface with both sharp lines and smooth bumps that will randomize the pattern quite well.
Step 4
Dip the aluminum foil wad into the black liquid clay.
Step 5
Dab the black liquid clay onto the frame with the foil dabber. Keep dipping into the black liquid clay and dabbing the frame to achieve a really random pattern all over. Bake the frame following the baking instructions for liquid clay.
TIP: When baking, it is important to use oven thermometer so that you can ensure your oven is at the correct temperature. Do not microwave the liquids. They must be baked in a Preheated oven at 275 ºF (130 ºC) and 300 ºF (149 ºC) for clear. Do not exceed baking temperatures. If your piece is less than ¼" [.6cm] bake for 15 minutes and if thicker, bake for 30 minutes. 
Step 6
Allow the frame to cool completely and then squirt a thick line of amber translucent liquid clay on the top. Spread the amber translucent liquid clay all over the frame with your fingertip. Bake the frame again following the baking instructions for liquid clay. Allow the frame to cool completely.
Step 7
Squirt a puddle of Gold liquid clay onto a piece of scrap (or deli) paper. Make another aluminum foil dabber. Dab Gold liquid clay randomly over the frame as shown. Bake the frame again following the baking instructions for liquid clay. Allow to cool completely.
Step 8
To create a high gloss shine, add a layer of clear liquid clay all over the frame. Bake it one more time following the baking instructions for liquid clay.
Step 9
OPTIONAL: After the final baking. amp up the clarity of the clear liquid clay with a heat gun. Turn the heat gun onto HI and hold it 4"-6" [10.2cm-15.2] over the surface of the frame. Continuously move the heat over the surface to avoid burning it. When you see the clear liquid clay turn completely clear and shiny, turn off the gun.
