From Martha Stewart comes this fun and easy crafts project that people of all ages will enjoy.
Take a look around your kitchen: Dishes, cups, and glasses all lend themselves to this fun project, and adding style and polish to a bunch of mismatched vases can be as simple as, well, adding polish. Don’t have something in the kitchen for this project? Head to your local Target or Walmart and there you’ll find a huge selection of white ceramic pieces in their kitchen section.
Nail lacquer, which floats on water, is an ingenious medium for marbleizing ceramics. And the design possibilities are endless: We chose pastels, but you literally have hundreds of options at your fingertips. We suggest picking two polishes you love, plus a brighter accent.
White ceramic cup, dish, vase, plate – whatever you choose to decorate
3 bottles of nail polish (different colors)
Fill a plastic bowl with water, then carefully pour in a quarter-bottle of nail polish (too fast and it will sink; too slow and it will get brittle before you dip). Add additional shades, and swirl with a toothpick.
Dip in the part of the vase you want to marbleize, and twist it to transfer the pattern. Set the vase on paper towels to dry. Once the polish is totally dry, use nail-polish remover to clean up any stray marks.
