A TIP   It is easy to make different marbling patterns, colour changes and shades by mixing different colours of clay; here have mixed white and curry. Make a marbling effect by twisting the two colours of clay around each other and then roll out. The more you twist, roll and knead the clay, the more you blend the colours together. See the different examples in the following step-by-step photos.

Other variants   The two eggs at the top show the unmixed solid colours white and curry. The egg in the middle is the two solid colours completely mixed together, which results in no marbling effect. The two eggs at the bottom illustrate the marbling effect. The clay dries to a lighter finish, so the difference between the white and the curry colours will be less when dry.
