We all can agree that marble designs are fascinating and beautiful, and its a design that’s fun and trendy. Here is a creative project that involves clay and a load of mesmerizing swirls. Create your own marble jewelry dish in just a couple minutes.
You will need:
- 4 oz polymer clay (colors of your choice)
- Polymer clay glaze
- Paint brush
- Roller pin
- Wax paper
- 6″ cookie cutter
1st step: Lay out a sheet of wax paper. Then take apart the clay and cut them into smaller sections. Take each individual piece and start rolling it with your hands to make the clay more malleable.
2nd Step: Take a black piece of clay and roll it out, do the same with the white clay. The amount of white clay should be twice as much as the black clay. To create the marblized look you will have to do 3 steps: twist the two colors together, roll it, then fold it. Repeat these steps about 3-4 times. Try not to mix it the colors too much or the two colors will blend into a solid gray.
3rd step: Combine all the clay that was mixed together and roll it into a large ball. Once you have done that, grab your roller pin and roll the clay flat. Decide on how thick or thin you want you plate to be, but make sure not to roll it out too thin.
4th step: Take the round cookie cutter and carefully cut out a circle.
5th step: Once you have cut out the circle, pre heat the oven to 275 degrees. Take a sheet of wax paper and place it on top of a pan, and carefully place the clay piece on top of the wax paper. It will take about 25-35 minutes for it fully bake.
6th step: Let the clay piece cool down for a couple minutes after taking it out of the oven. Paint a layer of the clay glaze on one side and wait 30 minutes for it to dry. Once it completely dried, paint a layer of the glaze on the opposite side.
Your creation is now all ready to hold all you beautiful jewelry! Hope you enjoyed this DIY project. Happy crafting!
