Are you aware that once polymer clay has touched a cooking utensil it can no longer ever used to touch food?  Also if you have a pasta machine you can condition you clay and thin it down using the pasta machine.  You can also lightly dip your stamp into the Perfect Pearls and stamp with it.  Just a few ideas and hints.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong!  I've tried this technique twice and have come up with two black blobs!  I used Premo turquoise clay both times and used LuminArte' Mica on the top.  Could it be the Mica that is causing me problems?  I baked at 275 degrees -- the first time 30 minutes in my regular oven and then went out and bought a toaster oven and baked at 275 degrees for 25 minutes.  The result both times is a black blob with a bubble on the front and with holes on the back.  If this is supposed to be super easy, I must be super stupid!  I thought I followed Gina's video exactly.  Any ideas?

I've made bracelets in the past with polymer clay.  It still holds true that you shouldn't bake a lot of clay in your kitchen oven; pick up a toaster oven at a garage sale and use the toaster oven and its cookie sheet in your craft room, dedicated for polymer clay and other craft projects--same oven temperatures that Gina mentioned -- 275 degrees for 25-30 minutes (remember, the heat in a toaster oven is more concentrated because of the small space.  To warm a block of clay, you can put it in your pocket -- your body heat will warm the clay enough to make it pliable as you are gathering your project supplies.  You can also ink up your stamp with VersaMark--this will help keep the clay from sticking to your rubber stamp, especially in warm, humid weather.  If you want your jewelry piece to have a shine, after baking and cooling, you can brush the piece with Future floor wax and let it dry.  If you don't have Perfect Pearls, but have PearlEx, you can use the PearlEx in the same way to bring out the raised pattern; the baking step will seal the PearlEx.  You can also ink up a stamp (just as if you were going to stamp onto paper) and stamp onto (not into) the clay and create some lovely jewelry, as well.

i found the smooth metal cutters in the cake department at joanns. the metal crinkle cutters are in the clay department.

i was using the toaster oven at 275', but my toaster oven is also a convenction oven. i reheated the clay for a longer time, and moved the rack to the middle of the toaster oven. after another 30 min the clay hardened. thank you for your information...

Yes, the clay should dry hard.  Try a warmer oven, at 225 degrees for 30 minutes.

the clay jewelry came out very nice. i baked for the time you suggested, but the clay was still soft, so i continued to bake an additional 10 min. i let it cool overnight, but this morning, the jewelry was still slightly bendable. is the clay supposed to dry hard..

Making these pieces of jewellery looks like a lot of fun!  Another great way to use these beautiful stamps.
