Project Instructions

  • 1
    When Working With Clay: Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces.  Start with clean hands and work surface 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 275 °F for 15 minutes per 1/4 inch thickness.  For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. Do not use microwave oven. Do not exceed the 275 °F or recommended baking time. Wash hands after use.   For best results, condition all clay by running it through the clay machine several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
