Here's how to create Hoop Earrings with Liquid Sculpey:
To begin easy Rainbow Earrings 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 reinkers 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 reinkers, acrylic paint, chalk pastels, or even liquid food coloring. Test out each method prior to creating your project. I used stamp pad reinkers because I had them on hand.
Place the Oven-Safe Work Mat on a baking sheet, and place the Oven Safe Jewelry 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, around the earring 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 into the earring mold until full. Make sure that the peg for the hole at the top of the earring mold is free of any Liquid Sculpey. Tap the mold gently on the baking sheet to move any bubbles to the surface, then pop with a toothpick.
Bake the Jewelry Mold in the oven according to the directions on the package. My oven is electric, but if yours is gass, do a test bake first. Remove from the oven, allow to cool, and then carefully remove the finished earring from the Jewelry Mold. This mold only has one of these fun hoop-style earrings, so repeat the above steps to create a second earring.
Liquid Sculpey Rainbow Hoop Earrings
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 Rainbow Earrings 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 back with me for more. I also tinted the Liquid Sculpey with alcohol inks, but they were runnier than with the stamp pad reinkers. The shimmer and sparkle of the pearl shows through, giving these earrings a totally upscale look.
