If you like easy, cheap, and useful, you’re going to love today’s tutorial. I have been having a little too much fun recently playing with clay. For this DIY Marble Clay Jewelry Dishes project I’ve combined two of my favorite techniques: tinting with paint and marbling. The outcome is these awesome DIY marble clay jewelry dishes!
You will need: oven bake clay | DecoArt Dazzling Metallics | Americana Acrylics terra cotta saucer | rolling pin | knife (not pictured)
Step 1: Tint the white clay with the American Acrylics by adding a few drops of paint to a small ball of clay and kneading thoroughly.
*Note: the color will appear a few shades lighter after the marbling.
Step 2: Roll each color of tinted clay into a thin snake that is six or so inches long.
Step 3: Roll the snakes together to create a larger snake.
Step 4: Fold the large snake in half and twist it to combine the colors even more.
Step 5: Smooch the clay into a ball and then use a rolling pin to roll out the marbled ball.
Step 6: Cut a circle slightly larger than your saucer out of the clay.
Step 7: Lay your clay circle over top of the terra cotta saucer. Gently press down in the center of the clay to create a more defined bowl shape.
Step 8: Bake your dish according to the instructions on the packaging. Leave the clay in the terra cotta saucer until it has cooled.
Step 9: Paint the edges of the dishes with Dazzling Metallics to give them a finished look.
I absolutely love how these DIY Marble Clay Jewelry Dishes came out. I love playing with clay, so these were so fun to make. Get creative with your color combos. You can stay within the same color family for each dish or totally mix them up. The blue set with the gold edges have stolen my heart!
