Begin by taking equal parts of each of the Easy Mold silicone putties. The putty will remain workable for 3 minutes, so imagine you’re in the Olympics for timed putty races and start kneading it together quickly!
Once you have your starfish, drape it around your arm to see how you want it to fit. The longest legs should wrap around the smallest part of your arm, so it doesn’t fall off two seconds after you put it on.
Once you’re happy with how it looks on your arm, it’s time to bake it! I like to use a glass that tapers at the bottom for a perfect fit. My glass was similar in size to my upper arm, so I draped the clay around the smallest end. Make sure the arms aren’t hanging loose by gently pressing the ends onto the glass. You can use any oven-friendly prop for baking, such as wood, metal, porcelain or thick glass.
Place the glass with the clay directly into the oven, and let it bake for 15 minutes. Carefully remove it from the oven and let everything cool for 10 minutes. If the cuff is disturbed at this time, it’s likely to break or crack. So leave it alone!
Place the dry, cool starfish on newspaper in a well-ventilated area and spray-paint the cuff. I used Rust-Oleum Universal Metallic Paint and Primer in Pure Gold, but you can use whatever color you like!
