About this Project
Craft your own mosaic masterpiece with this terrazzo-inspired tray! A popular design for flooring and walls, terrazzo is made from stone chips embedded in resin and sealed with a glossy coat. Serve your guests a cocktail (or two!) on this DIY tray with a textured, yet smooth, finish.
Create your own, snap a picture, and share using #ACMooreInspired.
1Paint entire tray with chalk paint and let dry. Set aside.
2For your terrazzo chips, use the 8" fondant rolling pin to roll out the polymer clay to about 1/8".
3Place terrazzo pieces on baking tray and put in your oven at 275° for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
4For the base of the tray, roll out a single color until the clay is about 1/2" thick. Measure out the inlay of the wood tray and slice that shape out of the rolled-out clay. Roll up excess and set aside.
5Break apart the baked clay into tiny shapes and chunks. Place the unbaked clay base in a scattered pattern. Make sure to alternate colors.
6Place parchment paper on top of clay base. Smooth out entire base with rolling pin and remove parchment paper. Trim excess if needed.
7Bake entire slab of clay at 275° for 15 minutes. Let cool. Place back into tray and adhere down with glue. Let dry.
TIP: Seal top of tray with resin for a polished finish.
