My last watermarble turned out quite well, so I'm going to keep practicing. When I chose the colors for this water marble, I was thinking "traditional tie dye colors." I used Bettina Polishes for my last marble because I knew they were supposed to work well. With this one, I just grabbed the colors I thought looked best.
Here are the colors I chose:
|L to R: Dr.'s Remedy NOBLE Navy, China Glaze Sunshine POP, OPI Alpine Snow, China Glaze Hey Sailor, and Sally Hansen Blue Me Away!|
With my last marble, I used white as the base coat and had little bubbles that chipped and the white base showed through, so this time I decided to use Hey Sailor as the base.. that was a bad choice because the yellow (Sunshine Pop) kinda looks orange-y. Take a look:
A few "bubbles" wound up on this marble, too. I even made sure I withdrew my hand slowly from the water, tapped the side of the glass, AND blew on them. Regardless, I'm happy with this result. I'm really catching on and I think I'll do these more often. I have to give credit to Colette at My Simple Little Pleasures. She does amazing marbles and I've watched her tutorials on youtube a billion times!!
Happy Friday Everyone!! :)
