polymer clay (I used white, black, and grey, but choose whatever colors you'd like...I've done this with neon colors too)
paint pen or nail polish
Circle for tracing
Add an extra touch to the edges with a metallic paint pen. I've also used nail polish for this too. You can also paint onto the clay--like try half marble, half painted. I've made these lots of times for others so many different ways!
Here's the finished piece! I was able to get two coasters from the amount of clay shown in the first pic. I used circles here for the demo since they are super easy, but I've made these in hexagons and squares, too.
I've also made bowls. I simply followed the same steps (I used more grey and black) and traced around a bowl as my pattern. I placed the clay inside of the bowl (I have also placed the bowl upside down and the clay on top). Then I placed the oven-safe bowl and clay inside the oven and followed directions to bake. I wouldn't use these for food, but they make great decor pieces. I also didn't mind the rawness of the edges.
Are you a fan of marble?
Still hanging in there--please be patient as I am slowly, slowly getting caught up on blogs and emails. I am feeling better!
