Marbling Clay For Beads
I thought it would be useful to have a demonstration on how to marble clay. I suggest only watching about 3 minutes of this 9 minute You Tube Video to see how easy it is. When I make clay for beads I usually use a handful of light colored clay and a half a handful for the dark colored clay. Whatever color of clay you decide to use, only use clays that fire to the same cone temperature.
What I especially like about marbling clay for beads is that whatever glaze is used it always comes out pretty! There are so many effects depending on how the clay has been marbled. The light contrasts wonderfully with the dark, so transparent glazes are recommended.
Before I close this post, I want to share how the beads came out that I demonstrated last month. Here's the link to the original post: Click Here
