It can be custom tinted with any type of permanent dye, so this quick and Easy Rainbow Cuff Bracelet with Liquid Sculpey is the perfect personalized gift idea!

Here’s how to create an Upcycled Cuff with Liquid Sculpey:
To begin easy Rainbow Cuff Bracelet with Liquid Sculpey, gather all supplies. Read instructions on the Liquid Sculpey® Pearl and Oven Safe Molds packaging before proceeding. Pre-heat oven to 275 degrees. Place seven mini-measure cups on the work surface, twist the Liquid Sculpey Pearl spout open, and add a small amount to each cup. I counted to six while squeezing.
Using stamp pad re-inkers in rainbow colors, squeeze three to four drops of ink into each cup of Liquid Sculpey Pearl. Mix colors thoroughly with a wooden craft stick. Liquid Sculpey can be colored with any permanent dye, like alcohol ink, stamp pad re-inkers, acrylic paint, chalk pastels, or even liquid food coloring. Test out each method prior to creating your project. I used stamp pad re-inkers because I had them on hand.
Place the Oven-Safe Work Mat on a baking sheet, and place the Oven Safe Lace Mold on top. Pre-heat mold in the oven according to package directions. Pick up some of the tinted Liquid Sculpey with the wooden craft stick and place several drops of each color, at each end of the lace mold, in rainbow order. I love the free-form look of the drops of color. Twist open the Liquid Sculpey Pearl spout and carefully squeeze in a zig-zag pattern on the Lace Mold.
Using the squeegee included in the Lace Mold Package spread the Liquid Sculpey from each end to the center of the mold. Wipe off any excess Liquid Sculpey onto a paper towel. Bake the Lace Mold in the oven according to the directions on the package. My oven is electric, but if yours is gas, do a test bake first. Remove from the oven, allow to cool, and then carefully remove the finished lace from the Oven Safe Mold.
Cut off a rectangle of denim from an old pair of jeans a bit wider than the Liquid Sculpey Rainbow Lace and long enough to fit around your wrist. Attach the Easy Rainbow Lace to the denim cuff with Fabri-Fuse Fabric Glue by E6000. Allow the glue to dry. To finish the Easy Rainbow Cuff Bracelet, cut one slit at either end of the cuff, thread through a ribbon, tie in a bow around your wrist. I love my Fiskars Scissors!
Liquid Sculpey Easy Rainbow Cuff Bracelet
I spent an afternoon experimenting with Liquid Sculpey and now I am seriously hooked. It is a quick and easy craft medium that has a TON of creative possibilities and applications. My Easy Rainbow Cuff Bracelet with Liquid Sculpey takes only 30 minutes to make from start to finish.
Mixing the rainbow colors of Liquid Sculpey Pearl was super easy and I have extra to make a few more projects, so check out the links below. I also tinted the Liquid Sculpey with alcohol inks, but they were runnier than with the stamp pad re-inkers. The shimmer and sparkle of the Liquid Sculpey Pearl shows through once baked, giving this rainbow lace a totally upscale look.
