Create beautiful marble clay jewelry in a few simple steps.
This is a great project for beginner clay crafters and even kids. Make the hearts from Sculpey Bake Shop clay and learn about mixing colors while creating art. Whether you are making this for yourself or to give as a gift, it is perfect for Valentines!
Supplies and Materials
- 2 ounce Sculpey Bake Shop Clay (Red, Pink, White)
- Clay Modeling Tools (Mat, Roller, Knife)
- Gloss Glaze and Paintbrush
- Oven for Baking
- Jewelry Finding (ie: Pin, Earring, Ring, Etc.)
- Jewelry Glue
Start by setting up your work space. I like to work on the silicone work mat that comes in the Mega Activity Set. It provides a perfect surface for mashing, molding and cutting clay. It is also nice to have baby wipes nearby for cleaning off hands in between colors.
Open the 2 oz clay packs and cut off one bar from each. This will be the amount of clay needed for the marbling process to make the pattern for the back of the jewelry piece.
Hold the three pieces of clay in the palm of your hand and make a fist around them to warm them a bit. Roll them together into a ball. To get more of a marble effect, break the ball in half and press into two flat pieces then roll back into a ball again.
Put the ball of clay on the silicone mat and press it gently to flatten a little. Use the roller tool to roll clay into a slab about 1/8 inch thick.
Use a small cutter to cut out a shape. For this stick pin piece, use a round cutter.
Roll a piece of red clay into a flat slab, also about 1/8 inch in thickness. Use the clay knife to cut out a heart then smooth the edges with your fingers.
Place the hearts on the circles and gently press together,
Bake on a cookie sheet at 275 degrees for 13 minutes. For more detailed baking directions using Sculpey Bake Shop, I recommend visiting their blog!
Once the clay comes out of the oven, let it cool completely. It is a nice finishing touch to add a painted layer of gloss glaze. Let it dry.
Then glue it to your jewelry finding to create a pin. This could also be glued to earrings or a barrette.
