How to use bracelet baking base
It is very easy to use – just place polymer clay on the top and bottom, previously lubricate the surface with liquid clay or polypaste. Then place the layer of polymer clay in different techniques: Mokume Gane, Mica Shift, Hidden Magic, Sutton Slice by Lisa Pavelka, or any other technique. Be sure there is no air between the base and the clay. After you finish – put the piece into the oven and bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Or use my temperature instructions: I bake it for 30 min at 140-150’C.
The maximum temperature that can be used to bake the bases is 225’C. My personal preference is to use the thinnest layer as you can on the top and bottom parts. As thinner the layer of clay is easier to apply the clay, you can stretch it if needed.
