Is anyone else always shocked at the price tag on marble coasters?! We figured out how to make marble coasters from clay and they were a total success. Your guests never have to know. 😉



  1. Pick what colors you want to use and cut off a small slice of each color. You want to end up with about 6 ½” pieces.
  2. Take each color and roll it out until you have a strand that’s 8-9” long.
  3. Once all your clay is rolled out, you’ll take the strands and twist them together.
  4. Then roll it into a ball. You’ll see a cool pattern start to appear.
  5. Roll out clay with a rolling pin and continue until you have a disc that’s ¼” thick.
  6. To create an even more marbled effect repeat steps 4 & 5.
  7. Create super-clean edge by punching out with a cookie cutter.
  8. Place coaster in the oven at 300° and let cook for 25-30 mins.
  9. Once cooked, color edges with a metallic pen.
  10. Finally, seal it with a coat of gloss glaze.
