Make Terrazzo Tile From Clay

As much as we need jewelry dishes to store our little tid-bids, we can’t deny the importance of our watch and eyepiece that usually finds itself crumbled along with notes and pens in the drawer. No more of time-wasting and losing, make your own terrazzo tile from clay to keep your essentials at an eye’s distance and easy to find.

Steps:

1.Cut out a rectangle piece (6.5 X 5 inches) from a parchment paper that you will be using as guide for the size of the tile. Combine three white clay blocks into one, roll them into a rectangle and then place it over the parchment paper and start rolling so to cover the entire parchment paper. Your corners will end up not fitting so you need trim off the excess from the sides and fill them up and roll. Repeat the steps until you have a leveled rectangle block of clay.

2.  Bring on your assorted clay blocks, tear pieces out of them and place them on the base. Make dots, cylinders just about any random shape. The best part of it all is that you don’t have to be perfect. You can also add glitter to one of your darker colored clay (  darker colors will show the glitter well ) for a little shine or granite effect if you don’t have granite clay.

3. Once you think you’ve possibly saturated around 75% , place a parchment paper and knock the clay pieces in with one end of your rolling pin. After that roll over with them to have them leveled. You might have to repeat this step again to make sure your clay pieces have indented well.
