You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Project Note: Although there is white clay included in the multi-pack, more than 1 oz. will be needed when making multiple coasters. 
 
Select three to four colors of clay and break pieces in half. 
Step 2
Condition the clay in your hands by rolling until soft enough to roll into a snake. 
Step 3
Roll each color into a snake and then line the colors in a row and twist together.  
Step 4
Continue twisting the clay strips together and then roll into a snake twice the length of the original.  
Step 5
Bend the clay snake in half and twist together again and then roll out into a long snake with your hands.  
Step 6
Roll the clay into a ball and continue working the clay to marble with colors a little bit more.  
Step 7
Use an acrylic roller to roll the clay out until it is even and a little less than ¼" thick. 
Step 8
Use a cookie cutter to cut out a perfect circle. Place circles on parchment paper and put on a cookie sheet (or pan). 
Step 9
Heat the oven to 275° and place the sheet of coasters inside for 25-30 minutes.  
Step 10
Remove the coasters from the oven and let cool.  
 
TIP: If the coasters are not completely flat, place under something heavy while still warm. Place parchment paper on either side of a coaster to protect while flattening.  
Step 11
Color the edges of the coasters with a Gold paint pen. Let dry.
