Hi.

Welcome to the Sunday Project where I share what I make, discover, or just generally enjoy.

Marbled Paper

Marbled Paper

Whenever I do my nails in less than a day later they're chipped and ruined. But get nail polish on anything else and it's on it forever! So why not take advantage of this semi-permanent medium and make something fun and pretty with it. Like making marbled paper! This DIY was so much fun, it's kind of like making ink blot art. You have no idea how it's going to turn out but the results are always pretty.

For this DIY project you'll need:

- Paper

- Nail polish

- A tray

- Stick (or a pencil would do)

- Old newspapers/magazines

Let's get started:

1. Fill your tray with water, not too much, just enough to get a flat surface. Whatever you use will pretty much get covered in nail polish so I would suggest using something you plan to toss afterwards.

2. Pour in your nail polish and move it around with the stick to spread it a bit.

3. Add a second color and combine using your stick.

4. Place your paper right over the polish and leave for a few seconds. Then transfer on to you old newspaper to dry.

5. I could make about 2 papers before I'd have to throw out the water and refill the tray since the nail polish would leave behind this gross film in the water.

And that's it. Use them to wrap gifts, as gift taps, in your scrapbooks, or even just display them.

See that weird gray splotch in the photo below? That's what happens when you don't clean out your tray and just put the paper on top of the film. :/

For the one on the left, I tried out a slightly different method. I did a layer of peach nail polish first. Dipped in my paper, took it out and poured in a layer of blue polish, then dipped my paper back in.
