Premo! Sculpey Accents Sweet Valentine Cookies
The hardest thing about clay cookies, is not eating the finished project!
- Time:2 hours
1Project time does not include the time it will take for clay to neither bake nor cool.
Note: if you dont have cutters in the sizes and shapes needed, make paper templates by using scrap paper and scissors. If using the paper templates, it helps to cut your heart out first then stamp messages.
2Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and dry well. Using wax paper, metal baking sheet or aluminum foil, knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between each of the colors of this project.
3Preheat oven to 275°F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. Clay should be baked on an oven-proof glass or metal surface at the 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4 inch of thickness.
4Use the Ecru clay and a small piece of Gold and combine together. Mixing will give the cookie base a little punch of shimmer, and more of a baked look. Run clay through the #2 setting of the conditioning machine.
5Wipe down tools, then condition Fuchsia clay through the # 2 setting conditioning machine. Fold the clay over so the thickness is double of the #2 setting.
6Use 2 inch diameter round scalloped cutter and cut out two circles. Take one of the circles and use a 1 inch size heart cutter to punch out the center. Then with Fuchsia clay cut a circle out with a 1-3/4 inch round.
7Place Fuchsia color circle in the center of the solid scalloped Ecru. This will be the fake raspberry filling of the sandwich cookie.
8With your finger or a sculpting tool add texture around the edge of your Fuchsia circle to make the center look like a spread of jelly.9 Add texture to your scalloped heart cut out clay piece. Use a hard kitchen sponge to create the perfect cookie-like texture. Stamp over the top circle then place on top of the cookie base. Then add the texture to the bottom of the cookie. Use a stylus tool or a toothpick to make a hole at the top center for hanging. Place cookie on a smooth ceramic tile and bake in your oven according to the manufacturers instructions on the packaging. Once cooled you can add glossy glaze to the fuchsia layer (so it looks like jelly) Leave the cookie part unglazed and natural. Let dry. For that added sparkle we sprinkled a dusting of coarse glitter crystals to look like sugar. Then use a piece of bakers twine to string your clay cookie for hanging.
10Use the Ecru clay and a small piece of Gold and combine together. Mixing will give the cookie base a little punch of shimmer, and more of a baked look. Run clay through the #2 setting of the conditioning machine. Make enough to make two heart cookies. Then run another piece on the #3 setting and lay on top of the first piece making your cookie approx 1/8 inch thick.11Wipe down tools then condition Pomegranate clay and run it through the # 3 setting of conditioning machine. Set aside. Clean tools again and then condition white clay and run it through the # 3 setting of conditioning machine.12Use a 2-3/4 inch heart shape cutter and cut out two hearts out of the Ecru clay.
13Take slabs of Pomegranate clay and White clay and place it on ceramic tile. Then with the alphabet stamper, stamp your message. (As shown, this is xoxo on the Pomegranate and love on the White.)
14With a 2-1/4 inch scalloped heart shape cutter, cut out heart shapes making sure your message is centered in the heart.15Add texture to Ecru cookie hearts. Use a hard kitchen sponge as you did in step 9 to create the perfect cookie like texture. Stamp over the top and on the sides of both of the Ecru hearts. Then lay the Pomegranate scalloped heart with message on top of Ecru hearts. Do the same with the White heart. Once together you can add some texture to the bottom of the cookies. Use a stylus tool or a toothpick to make a hole at the top center for hanging.
16Place cookies on a smooth ceramic tile and bake in your oven according to the manufacturers instructions on the packaging. Once cooled you can paint the letters in the stamped message and add some fun details likes dots to the edges. Once dry, add glossy glaze to the scalloped message heart only leaving the cookie unglazed and natural looking. Let dry. For that added sparkle we sprinkled a dusting of coarse glitter crystals to look like sugar. Then use a piece of bakers twine to string your clay cookie for hanging.
