Not only are they really simple to make they look fabulous. Plus Terrazzo is making a real comeback, in fact, I think it might be the new DIY marbling! This would be a really great handmade homemade gift. Not a fan of Polymer clay, then we have also used microwave drying clay to make a ring dish before.

I don’t have special clay tools and actually, repurpose a lot of my baking equipment which is what makes this a really inexpensive craft.

Start by picking out the colours for your terrazzo. I chose a white background with flecks of brown, grey, pink and coral. You can choose whatever colours you like and this is a fabulous way to use up leftover polymer clay from other projects. Do use the same brand clay, so it all cures at the same temperature and time.

Roll out your base clay – I have a roller with little circles you put on the ends to make the clay an even thickness and I really love it. It is perfect for this and for pastry too.

Then cut flakes of small pieces of the coloured clay. If you have older clay it is easier to do this! You can also grate, yes with a cheese grater older polymer clay. Then roll again.

Place the clay into an ovenproof bowl to form a bowl shape and bake according to packet instructions. Allow to cool before removing.

    Did you cut out a perfect circle with a biscuit cutter or just free hand it in the oven proof bowl?

      She used a 4 inch cookie cutter. She says in her blog that you can use a bowl or a cup.

    What do you use your knife and sandpaper for?

      The knife is for cutting out the clay in a circle and then once baked I sandpapered down the edges
