Combining clay pieces of different colours is often necessary in the art of clay-making. Today, I will use a colour-blocking belt as an example to show six steps for simple clay piece joining that you can follow to create your art!
1. Roll out a thin layer of clay in two different shades; in this instance, I used a deep crimson and a pristine white clay.
2. Using a guiding line on a work surface, slice one end of the two-colour clay sheet to create a straight edge.
3. Join the end of the two-coloured clay where they are fused.
4. Cut long strips neatly with the blade angled slightly inward.
5. Similarly, splice the red colour onto the other end of the white clay and cut out long strips once again.
6. Cut the ends of the pieced two-color clay neatly.
