How to marble glass with nail polish- tutorial.

-small tumblers

-nail polish (few different colours)

-plastic container (deep enough to dip tumblers)

-lukewarm water



Pour lukewarm water into the container (enough to dip at least half of the tumbler). Pour few small drops of nail polish into the water. Layer forms on a water surface rather quickly, so add another color/colors straight away. Use toothpick to swirl colors around. Dunk your tumbler into the water. You can swirl it gently to make sure layer of nail polish sticks to the glass. You can dip either bottom or side of the tumbler. Leave tumbler to dry. Make sure it is completely dry.

-Don't use quick dry nail polish.

-Don't use more than few drops of nail polish as layer might get to thick.

-Pour nail polish straight from the bottle.

-If you see ugly remains of nail polish forming on the surface or if you plan to use different colors for every tumbler, dump the water & start fresh.
Happy Crafting :)
