This can be done with any shape but since I used a star I'll be describing my process with a star.

1. Condition your clay.

2. Break the clay into three parts and run through the pasta machine on setting 9. If using a roller, roll the clay about 1/2 inch thick.

3. Layer the sheets of clay on top of each other pressing them down with even pressure.

4. Then place the cookie cutter on top and cut out a star.[If your are worried about your clay sticking inside the cookie cutter you can dust it with corn starch.]

5. Remove the excess clay and slide the star out from the cookie cutter.

Step 3: Time to swirl some colors.

1. Take the remaining the clay from your star and roll it into a snake. 

2. Repeat this with the other color of clay.

3. Trim each snake to equal length and then coil them together.

4. Gently take the coil and press it around your star

5. Using the craft knife cut away excess.
