GETTING STARTED Preheat oven to 275 °F. Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay.

Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.

Step 1 Make silver log 3/8" diameter x 5" long. With the Clay Extruder and 1/8" circle die, extrude strings of Purple Pearl, Silver, 18K Gold, Magenta Pearl. and Bright Green Pearl. Lay strings lengthwise on log. When log is covered, roll on work surface to adhere strings and twist stripes. Trim ends so log is 5" long, and fold in ends. Curve into candy-cane shape.
