Knowing how to marble clay to your liking takes time, patience, and experimentation. I’ll be honest, in many cases when I was first starting out I made some major mistakes … not enough marbling, too much marbling, choosing the wrong colors to put together. Marbling is a fantastic technique that can bridge the gap from a delicate and lightly streaked look, like Christi Friesen’s “lookat technique” (click here to get the free tutorial from the Friesen Project) to flat out striped!
Today I’m going to share with you a polymer clay marbling tutorial. This is a marbling technique that I use very often in my creations, mostly for dragons & forest creatures. I’m sure that I’m not the first person in the world to do this, but I’ve adapted a faux stone technique to bright colored clay to make a “shattered marble” technique. The reason I call this “shattered marbling” is because you are going to manipulate the clay in such a way that the original colors are maintained and not all swirled together to make a variegated blend. With this polymer clay marbling tutorial, you can see every individual color you originally put into the clay. This is a very simple process, but like standard marbling will take some time & patience to get used to.
I hope this brought some new ideas for you and marbling today. Try it and let me know what you think in the comments below.
