TOOLS & MATERIALS:
- Sculpey Soufflé Oven-Bake Clay
- Sculpey essential tool kit
I love all the colors this clay comes in! They’re so bright and pretty and so fun to work with! I knew I wanted to make jewelry with this clay and all the bright colors really lent themselves to fun multi colored bracelets that are perfect for summer!
Using the super slicer tool cut about a half inch thick slice of clay in the color you want for the base of your bracelet.
Soften the clay by kneading it with your hands. The clay starts out pretty hard but softens right away. It’s super easy to work with.
Roll it out on a clean flat surface until it is long enough to fit around your wrist like a bangle.
Press the ends together to form a ring.
Cut thinner slices from 3 other colors.
Knead and roll them as you did in step 2, but keep rolling until they are thinner and longer.
Line them up together and wrap them around the bracelet base you made with your first. color.
When you are finished press the ends together to hold them.
When your bracelet is finished you will cook it in the oven.
Follow the directions on the package.
It says to heat the oven to 275 degrees and cook them for 30 minutes per ¼” of thickness.
The bracelets I made were thicker than ¼” so I cooked them for 30 minutes, checked them and flipped them over and cooked them for another 30 minutes.
Be careful when you take them out of the oven as they will be very hot. Let them cool before trying to wear them.
You can also wrap your exterior colors in the opposite direction to create more of a crossing pattern.
When the clay has been cooked and is all done it has a really nice suede finish, it’s a perfect finish for these bracelets.
Stack two or three bracelet bases and add little balls of contrasting colors to make a different bracelet.
These are really fun and simple to make. Be sure to make a few and stack them, they look really great together.
