Wear the latest colorful drink around your neck with this fun Sculpey craft

Love it or hate it, you can’t deny how colorful and pretty the Unicorn Frappuccino is. I haven’t tried one myself, but loved the colors so I decided to make myself a necklace. Make one for yourself today.

What you need:

To get these colors shown, we are going to mix some clays. For the light blue, mix blue and white together. For the purple, mix some purple with a little bit of candy pink.

Next, create an ombre like fade from purple to pink. To do this take half your pink and purple clay then mix it together. Divide the blend in half and mix one half with part of your purple clay and the other half with part of your pink clay.

Roll all your clay blends into cylinders and butt the ends together.

Alternate between rolling your clay and pinching the ends together. When you are happy with your work use a cutter to even off ends or trim if needed. You want the bottom to be thinner than the top.

Roll out a thin cane of your light blue clay and lay it in a squiggle like fashion on your work. Roll your work to flatten the blue cane into your work.

Shape some translucent clay into the same width as the cup bottom and press it onto your work. Trim of excess so there is just a skinny bit of translucent as the bottom.

Roll out a cane of translucent clay and put a ring around the top of the cup.

Tip: Translucent clay often needs to be conditioned. To do this, kneed your clay with small amounts of Liquid Fimo until your clay can be properly worked with, Don’t throw it out.

Kneed some white clay until it is soft but not sticky. Place a ball in your #16 tip and use an unsharpened pencil to press your clay through the tip. Look at that whip cream! Spiral the whip cream on top of your work.

To clean your tip, scrape as much clay out as you can with a toothpick. Dip a cotton swab in some rubbing alcohol and wipe out the tip until it’s clean. Let air dry.

Trim a toothpick and paint it green. I used some scrap clay as a drying stand. When the toothpick is dry insert it into your whipped cream top and insert an eye pin too.

Bake your work at 160 F for 20 minutes.

After your work is cool, paint a small area of your work with sculpey glaze. Press a cut out logo onto the glaze. Let dry. Apply 2 coats of gloss to the cup base, letting your work dry between coats.

When your work is completely dry, glaze just the whipped topping. While it is wet sprinkle, on a little bit of pink and blue glitter. Let dry. Brush of excess glitter gently. Add a coat of glaze over the glitter.
