sculpey® glitter earrings

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. Uncured liquid clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces.
Step 1

Stir liquid clay completely and thin with liquid clay softener as needed.

TIP: Wash hands after use with soap and water or baby wipes.


Step 2
Fill the two smaller teardrop shapes (just a little less than full) with Gold liquid clay.
Step 3
Stir glitter into the clear liquid clay until it is well mixed. Fill the hoop shape in the mold with glittery clear liquid clay.
Step 4

Bake for 30 minutes at 300 ºF (149 ºC).  Let Cool. 

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). Do not exceed baking temperatures. If your piece is less than ¼" [.64cm] bake for 15 minutes or 30 minutes for thicker pieces.

If your liquid project has become yellowed or discolored in the oven, remake it and either fold an index card in half with your project placed under it, or place aluminum foil over your project when baking.

Step 5
Remove the hoop shape only from the mold. Leave the teardrops in the mold.
Step 6

Place a small dot of super glue in the center of the Gold teardrops toward the end opposite the hole. Place the post findings on the glue and allow to dry.


Step 7
Remove the teardrop shapes from the mold and add a thin layer of Gold liquid clay over the top of the teardrop shapes. Gently replace in the mold. Bake at 300 ºF (149 ºC) for 30 minutes following the baking tips above. Let cool before removing the tear drops from the mold.
Step 8

Use the pliers to attach the teardrops to the hoops with jump rings.
