There are several marbling methods but I tried the nail polish and water technique. Super fun, a little messy and surprise results. Want to try it? Here’s how you can marble just about anything with a few items you probably have on hand.
Start by either blowing out your eggs or hard boiling them. Since this was an experiment, I didn’t want to go to the trouble of blowing out my eggs so I hard boiled them. Darn. I wish I add blown them out because I love the results. Use a disposable plastic bowl and fill it with water. Add several drops of nail polish in different colors and swirl it around with a toothpick or craft stick. I used silver, gold and copper frosted nail polish. Dip you egg into the water and the nail polish will cling to it. Dip the other side and place it to dry on a dry rack. I set up toothpicks in foam for my dry rack.
With marbling there’s no do over. You have to embrace each one or get more eggs. Have nail polish remover handy or use disposable rubber gloves because the nail polish will also cling to your fingers.
On this egg, you can clearly see where I dipped one side and then the other.
Once the eggs are dry. you can use them to decorate just about anything.
I love them! You can also use this marbling technique on other materials like paper or glass. I can’t wait to play!
