Materials and tools:
- Polymer clay
- Czextuder + LC Disk 1 or 3 (extension with 3 small holes)
- Scalpel, blade
Condition polymer clay. I used KatoPolyclay because it is very strong after baking. Put the clay into the Czextruder. Use the extension with 3 holes from LC Disk 1 and extrude the clay.
I extruded clay in two shades of brown. Cut extrusions into pieces of the same length.
Create strips – press together three extrusions.
Cross two strips. Then start weaving – add two strips.
Add another two strips.
Continue weaving this way.
Weave the whole coaster.
Cut off the excess.
Bake it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Your coaster is ready.
