I was meant to post this project 2 days ago, but wasn’t able to because I was sick. I really dislike being sick, not being able to do anything and feeling completely helpless. It was very frustrating, especially when I had planned many things to do. I knew I wasn’t going to be productive no matter what I tried, so I decided to focus on my recovering by attempting nothing but sleep and meditation, leaving my phone and computer behind. I’m still in recovery mode but feel much better and in a brighter mood to resume blogging:)

Hope you are feeling healthy and well, motivated and ready to enjoy tackling this project!:) If you are looking for another similar DIY project, you can check out my first coaster project I posted a while ago.

What you need

– FIMO soft polymer modelling clay –  White 350g & and Raspberry 56g (Enough for 5 coasters)
– Rolling pin
– Craft knife
– Oven

How to make it

1. Roll the clay into a ball. Combine colours to your preference. (I used 1/5 of the white clay and just a small piece of raspberry clay.)

2. Flatten the raspberry ball into a flat circle. It’s quite small so you can easily do this using your hands.

3. Stick the raspberry circle on the side of the white ball.

4. Gently rub raspberry piece over the white ball in one direction to remove the harsh edge between the two. (I really wanted a water colour effect rather than a typical marble effect, so I experimented many times to find the best way to achieve this effect!)

5. Keep rubbing until you get the desired pattern.

6. Use a rolling pin or a similar tool to roll the ball into a flat circle.

7. Cut the circle into hexagon shape using a craft knife.

8. Bake it for a maximum of 30 minutes at a temperature of 110°C/230°F.

9. Let it cool and enjoy!
