  • two contrasting colors of clay
Roll out two sheets of contrasting clay.
Lay one sheet on top of the other.
Square off the sheet by trimming the edges until the sheet is a perfect rectangle. Cut the sheet in half or in thirds, depending upon its length.

Here, I've cut the sheet in thirds.

Stack the pieces of the sheet on top of each other.
Cut this stack in half.
Stack these halves on top of each other.

Here, I would start to reduce the cane. However, you can continue to cut and stack as many times as you'd like.
