{Nail Polish} Marbling

Friday, May 9, 2014

 
Today I have a fun project using nail polish to create a marble effect.
 
 
Using an old shallow container {I used an old plastic take out container}filled with about an inch of water, I drizzled each color of nail polish onto the water's surface.  Using the end of a thin paint brush, I swirled the polish colors together until it looked cool.
Working rather quickly, I placed a piece of water color paper face down onto the swirls and then removed it.  The nail polish adheres quickly to the paper.  I set it aside to dry and then you are left with the most gorgeous paper to work with!
 
 
Work in a well ventilated area because the odor from the polish is quite strong.
 
 
I created an envelope wrap for this week's Make It Monday 
and used a sketch from CAS(E) this sketch!

 
I LOVE this second piece with the blue and orange combination.
I can't wait to use it on my next project!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
If you try this technique, let me know. 
I'd love to check it out!
