I made these mini clay cheese boards with air dry clay then I marbled them using black and grey nail varnish. I learnt how to do it from the year of cozy book. I thought they would be fun to make for the Christmas table for guests to have individual boards for cheese and biscuits at the end of the meal, do you have a cheese course at the end of your meal?.
to make it I got a chunk of air dry clay and rolled it out with a rolling pin then used a sharp knife to cut out the shape I wanted, I used a little water to smooth the edges then I used a straw to make a hole to thread the string through. then I left it to dry for a few days (I left it on a marble chopping board in the dining room). once it had dried I glazed it with a clear gloss then to marble it to do this you will need
- two nail varnishes I used black and grey
- old bowl (one you can throw away I got a cheap plastic one)
- tooth pick
