Marble is a nice accent in any home, which is why I wanted to give a go at these marble coasters. I first saw these on Homey Oh My and I fell in love. It’s hard not to fall in love with her DIY’s and home decor. I wanted to switch it up and add some pink to mine and I love how they turned out! So, are you wondering just how I managed to make marble? These coasters are completely made out of polymer clay. They were super easy to make and look so chic once they’re finished!
Marble Hexagon Coasters
Start by rolling your white clay into a mini hot dog. The clay is a little stiff at first but it’ll warm up in your hands once you start working with it. I rolled it into a ball first and then moved it quickly back and forth in my palms to create the hot dog look.
Next you’re going to take bits and pieces of pink and black clay and stick them on to the white hot dog. These are literally just pieces I picked off of the squares of clay and pressed on. Nothing special at all!
Now, you’re going to start twisting your clay. Just make sure the pieces don’t fall off and instead get combined in with the white clay. Just keep twisting different parts until your clay looks like above. This is how we get the “marble” texture. Try not to twist too much or else the colors will become too mixed up and look messy.
Once you’re done twisting your clay you’re going to roll it out into a circle. I would suggest doing one coaster at a time. I rolled out the circle just enough so my hexagon could fit on it. It should be anywhere from 1/4 – 1/2 an inch thick. It depends how you like your coasters!
After your circle is all rolled out, you’re going to cut out your hexagon. Just place your shape on top and use an x-acto knife to cut around it. If your clay is stuck to your surface and you’re scared of breaking it, just slowly slip a piece of paper underneath to get it off.
Once you cut out all your coasters it’s time to bake them! Make sure to put some parchment paper on top of a baking sheet so that the clay doesn’t stick. I put them in a 275 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes. Just keep an eye on them because everyone’s oven is different! Once they’re done, take them out and let them sit for a little while to harden up! How easy was that? You will see that some of my coasters look more pink or black than others. Sometimes instead of my base clay being white I used pink and black. Just follow the same instructions above but switch around the colors!
