Tips

Be sure to clean hands and tools before starting your project.

Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces.

Start with lighter colors and work your way down to darker colors, to avoid discoloring the clay.

Make the bracelets thin; they will be more flexible and you can make more of them with the amount of clay in the kit. Save scraps, they can be mixed to make more bracelets.

The bracelet form can be used over and over. For best results, cover the bracelet form with disposable foil for easy release.

Wash hands after working with clay.
