Marbled pattern on bowls, step by step
To make a marbled pattern on bowls we will need:
- a container or larger plastic bowl with warm water,
- nail polish in the color you want on the bowl,
- porcelain bowls,
- latex/rubber gloves.
In a container or plastic bowl with warm water, pour a few drops of nail polish. Then dip the bowls into the water with the polish and coat thoroughly in the polish. The varnish will coat the surface of the bowls. After immersion you should leave them in a safe place to dry completely. The resulting pattern can be additionally protected with colorless nail polish.
If you want a more sophisticated effect, you can use two colors of nail polish. Ideally, one color should be darker than the other. First pour the darker polish and then add the lighter one, forming irregular spots and patterns with it. Only then do we dip our bowl. As before, we leave it to dry completely in a safe place. All the movements we make while dipping the bowl should be quick and decisive, as if we were taking the varnish to the surface of the bowl.
Be sure not to wash the bowls in the dishwasher afterwards, only by hand. High temperatures can damage the pattern.
