Marbled Clay Pens

I have saved the easiest clay pens for last.

I know over the last couple months I have shared a ton of clay pen ideas. I hope I haven’t bored you.

I just think they are the cutest things, and I love that you could create them for selling at craft fairs, for party favors, for sleepovers or scout crafts. You don’t have to be an expert at clay creations to make these, and they come together pretty quickly.

These marble clay pens are especially quick and easy. You just mix some colors, roll out the pen til it’s smooth and bake!

They’re easy and fun, and creative without being overwhelming.

Here is the kind of clay I use.

Sculpey Clay

Bic Pens: These are some of the ones I have featured.

There are a bunch of ways to cover your pens.

Pick out your colors, and wrap each color around the pen in small pieces.

Then roll it smooth. Don’t forget to cut off the excess at the base of the pen to stick your pen cartridge back in after baking.

Not marbled enough? Roll out several sticks of color, and place them together side by side.

Pull and twist, and continue twisting until you have a marbled look. Then flatten the dough and wrap it around the pen.

You can also put several colors together, and squish them into a marbled look, then flatten out for your pen.

Want a different look? How about taking pieces of the clay and placing them into a flat piece, just pinching off little bits and adding them here and there, this is more of a camouflage look.

When you have the pen covered, roll it out until it’s smooth. The thicker clay amount you have, the thicker the pen will be in your hand.

Once you have all your pens covered, place them on a baking sheet covered with foil and bake them at 275 degrees for about 20 minutes.

If you want, spray them with a protective polyurethane to seal them, place the pen cartridge back in the pen and write!
