Project Instructions

Step 1 Roll red clay into a sheet about 1/8" thick.

Step 2 Lightly spray the sheet of clay with the water. This will act as a “release” so that the texture sheet or stamp won't stick to the clay. Place the texture on the clay and roll over the entire surface with the plastic roller to evenly emboss the pattern into the clay.

Step 3 Remove the texture sheet and carefully lift the clay from the work surface. Using one of the tools will help. Place the clay back onto the work surface.

Step 4 Use the heart cutter to cut out the heart pattern. Set the heart aside and repeat Steps 1-4 with the pink clay. Set the remaining stamped clay aside.

Step 5 The hearts will be stacked and glued into place after baking, so use the toothpick to put a hole in the right side of the pink heart. Set both hearts aside.

Step 6 Use the small heart cutter to cut out two hearts for the earrings. Use the toothpick to place the holes in the center top of each heart.

Step 7 Bake all pieces according to the instructions above. Allow to cool completely.

Step 8 After the clay has cooled, the two large hearts can be glued together. Attach the heart pendant to the chain with one of the large silver jump rings, using both pairs of pliers to open and close the jump ring. Attach the selected clasp.

Step 9 Thread each of the small hearts onto a silver head pin, trim to ½" and use the small round nose pliers to create the loop at the top of the earring. Attach the ear wire to the loop and close the loop.

Tips

Baby wipes are a great way to clean up after playing with clay!

Craft Notes

Start with clean hands and work area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 130°C (275°F for U.S. customers) for 15 minutes per 6mm (1/4") of thickness. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT exceed the above temperatures or recommended baking time. Baking should be completed by an adult. Wash hands after use. For best results, clean hands in between colors.
