Step 1: Decide on the color scheme you’ll use. We made RAINBOW bracelets using this Sculpey color combination!
Step 2: Begin kneading each color separately to soften it.
Step 3: Form stripes by rolling each color into a long strand and grouping them.

Step 4: Using a rolling pin, flatten the clay. Because it won’t flex, a continuous loop clay bracelet can be smaller than an open cuff type and is consequently less brittle. Ours were around 1/8″ thick.

Step 5: Wrap the striped clay around the can and trim it to make a straight seam. To fuse the clay, press the seam edges together.

Step 6: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for baking the clay. At 275 degrees Fahrenheit, 15 minutes per 14″ of thickness is recommended. I put our bracelets in the oven for 20 minutes. At 275 degrees Fahrenheit, Sculpey advises 15 minutes per 14″ of thickness. I put our bracelets in the oven for 20 minutes.

Step 7: Allow cooling after removing from the oven. To separate the bracelet from the can, gently insert a butter knife between the inner surface of the clay and the can. It will take some effort, but it will be worth it!

11. Pendant Necklace

Who doesn’t like heart-shaped pendants? Try to make one for yourself.

To make the base for your pendants, grab a ball of white or colored clay. Warm up the clay with your hands or a clay conditioning machine until it is soft and warmed up.

You can condition a larger lump of clay, cover it in plastic wrap, and put it in your pocket if you’re planning to make a lot of pendants. It will stay warm, soft, and ready to roll out whenever you need it. With a plastic or acrylic roller, flatten the ball of clay to about a 1/2-inch thickness. On top of a clay mat or wax paper, roll out the clay.
Cut thin slices from the created polymer canes with a sharp blade, just enough to cover your base color. This step will require an adult or older children to assist the smaller ones.

Place the slices on top of the rolled clay and arrange them as desired.
Next, place a heart cookie cutter on the clay and press down to create as many heart shapes as possible.
Using a toothpick or skewer, poke a hole in the top of the hearts. To avoid breaking, make sure the hole is large enough to thread a piece of jewelry cord through and not too close to the edge.
A string or jewelry chain will be needed to thread through the final pendants so that they can be worn as a necklace.

12. Monster Earrings

The Monster can be your favorite jewelry.

Step 1: To make the owl’s body, roll out the clay and use the huge glass.

Step 2: Cut a small bit out of the top of the larger glass with the smaller glass. Then, on each side, carefully press in the little glass to make the wings.

Step 3: Make dots on the chest using the skewer. Then, at the top, force the skewer all the way through to hang the ornament on the tree.
Step 4: Complete the owl, painting it. For each owl, I used two distinct colors. After that, I applied a layer of glitter mod podge to the entire owl.

Step 5: Once that was dry, I glued the eyes and cut a small triangle for the nose out of the foam sheet.
