  • Level:beginner
  • Time:20 minutes + dry

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Paint the outside of the clay pot white. Let dry.
  • 2
    Fill up plastic tub with lukewarm water. Tip: If the water is too cold or too hot the nail polish will not sit properly on the surface of the water. You want to make sure the water is lukewarm (slightly warmer than room temperature, but cooler than bath temperature) for the best results.

    Drip nail polish over the surface of the water in the colors of your choice. Tip: Have all the supplies ready to go. You need to move very quickly once the nail polish is dropped into the water.
  • 3
    Using the toothpick, stir colors around to create a marbled pattern.

    Roll the clay pot at an angle in the top of the water picking up the nail polish as you turn it around. Let it dry.
