Step 1: Gather All The Materials
For this project, you will need:
- One white coffee mug (with no patterns or drawings whatsoever)
- One plastic bowl filled with water (the bowl must be deep enough to sink the entire mug in) and some fingernail polish in the desire color.
Step 2: Start The Project!
Once you have filled the plastic bowl with lukewarm water, add the fingernail polish to it and let it spread out. After that, take another polish (a different color) and add several drops of that one as well. Carefully mix the two colors with a toothpick and then dip your white coffee mug into the entire mixture.
Give the fingernail polish a few seconds to attach to the mug, let it dry for three hours and then pat dry your newly made marbled coffee mug with a paper towel. Make sure not to wipe it, though, as that will only ruin the entire design, and your efforts will be in vain! Check out the Video Tutorial below:
