What You Need

Materials

  • Polymer Clay
  • Clay Tools
  • Clay rolling pin

Instructions

  1. To create a marbled effect, use a small amount of four different colors. First, remove pieces from each color and start warming and kneading in your hand.
  2. Once the clays are a bit more pliable, use the rolling pin to start flattening them out. Flatten the clay and then fold it over a few time and flatten again. This helps to create more marbling.
  3. Cut a thin strip of clay about 8″ long. I had to piece two sections together to get the length I needed.
  4. Then, it’s as simple as gently folding the clay into a tear drop shape and connecting the top of the clay strip together. Follow the baking directions for your clay. I put mine in at 265F for about 35 minutes.
