  • 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 (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4” (6 mm) thickness.  For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use.  Baking should be completed by an adult.
  • Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay before using. 


  1. Using the Sculpey Acrylic Roller, roll out a thin sheet of clay. Place the light switch cover on top of the sheet. Using the craft knife, trace around the edge of the switch plate leaving a little bit of clay to overhang (this will ensure that there is enough clay to wrap around the sides of the plate). Next, cut out the center switch opening. Use the pointed tip on the tool to press through the screw holes.
