DIY: Marble Clay Ring Dish

Not too long ago, while shopping for crafting supplies I decided to get some clay simply for fun. I knew I wanted to make something out of it but I wasn't quite sure what to make. I did some research and saw a tutorial on creating a marble effect with clay and knew I had to do it. After viewing the tutorial I realized it would be adorable to create a ring dish with the marbled clay. Overall the process is very easy and the most difficult aspect was rolling out the tough clay. I'm so excited to share this DIY becuase it was very fun and now I can't wait to work on more clay objects.

Materials:

  • Oven-bake clay in two colors 
  • Rolling pin
  • Craft knife (or box cutter in my case)
  • Ruler 
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking sheet

Directions

Step 1: Create a ball of white clay and add two little blobs of the contrast color to the white clay. Start molding the clay together and you will see the marble effect start to form.

While molding the clay, if you would like more of the contrast color simply add it in.

Step 2: Use the rolling pin to roll out the clay to be 1/4" thick on parchment paper.

Step 3: Use your ruler to square of the edges and trim the clay into a square of the desired size.

Step 4: Trace a square about 3/4" from the outer edge. These will be the sides of your dish so these can be as tall or as short as you want.

Step 5: Starting from the inner square, make a cut from the inner corners to the outer edges.

Step 6: Fold up the sides to stand then fold the cut edges onto the sides of the dish. Pinch the corners so the clay sticks together.

Step 7: Lastly, bake the dish (this will vary depending on the brand of clay) Warning: Make sure not to over bake the dish. I did this and it altered the color of my clay, however I was still happy with the outcome.
