Two Tone Gold Clay Cuff
At 1.75" wide this is no wallflower of a bracelet. The surface of the bold cuff glistens with metallic tones thanks to the help of mica powder on Ecru and White clay. The complex look of the project features designs cut out of textured clay. The template is included with the instructions. Beneath the clay rests a dark antique gold metal form etched with black designs of it's own.
This project can be cut with the Silhouette Curio machine, the Cameo 3, and other machines. Download the cut file above that's right for you or the pdf file which includes instructions and the template.
Directions for Silhouette users (SC) and craft knife users (CK) are included in this tutorial. Directions without initials apply to all crafters.
Before you begin, condition clay.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my Sculpey machine the thickest setting is 1 and the thinnest is 9.
step 9 - CK - Place the stencil on the clay. Cut out the shapes and the bracelet outline. Cover the clay with deli film.
step 10 - Lay the clay flat on the work surface film side down. Sparingly, apply Liquid Polymer Clay to the outer edges of the bracelet shape.
step 11 - Mark the center of the metal cuff with a Sharpie. Center the metal cuff over the clay design.
step 15 - Bake the bracelet in a 275 degree oven for 30 minutes.
step 16 - Apply glaze to the finished bracelet to protect the mica powder.
