Coaster Mesa, California 


I needed coasters, bad.  Seriously the set I had came from my first roommate (circa 1998) and were made of rubber and sadness.  So I made some new ones and it was fun and easy and I think they’re cute!

1. Start with Sculpy in a bunch of colors, I love neon anything, and I also used a few peices of white to keep them bright and to keep the colors from getting too muddy. 


2. Roll the pieces into long, skinny worms. This part was ultra exciting to my toddler. 


3. Bunch the worms together and start to twist. 


4. Roll this new mega warm with your hands along a smooth table or bar.  When it gets double the length, food in half and twist and roll again. 


5.  Keep repeating this process for as long as you like.  I think the more you twist and fold the better the colors look at the end but that’s a preference thing.  When you reach your desired color squish, roll the worm into a ball. 


6. Flatten your worm ball on a smooth surface with a rolling pin until it’s about 1/4-1/2″ thick.  If the clay is sticking to the surface, do this on aluminum foil instead so you can transfer to a baking sheet without making it look like sheet. 


6. Take an extra large cookie cutter if you have one, or use the rim of a big cup to cut out a perfect circle. 


7. Transfer your circles (with the foil if need be) to a baking sheet and bake per the instructions on the package (this is your lazy tutorial).  Wait to cool, and voila!  You can gold leaf the edges to make them super cool but I’m not that fancy.
