Supplies Needed to Make Terrazzo Trays

How to Make Terrazzo Trays with Air Dry Clay

Step One:  Roll out a thin sheet of Plus Clay air dry clay in black, slightly larger than the inset portion of your wooden tray.

Step Two:  Roll out a thin sheet of Plus Clay air dry clay in white (or Color Plus Clay in colors of your choice). Use the rotary cutter to cut random shapes of clay.

If you want a different look, "tear" the pieces of white clay so that they have rough edges.

Step Three:  Gently push the cut pieces of clay into the black Plus Clay.

Step Four:  Use a smooth, flat surface to apply pressure to the clay.  Smooth the clay until it is all level.

Step Five:  Once the clay is smooth and the white and black pieces are level, cut the clay to the size of the inside of the tray, using the rotary cutter.  Allow it to dry thoroughly.

Step Six:  Once dry, glue the clay to the inside of the wooden tray with hot glue.
