Ever since coming across this DIY on Design Mom, I’ve been waiting for just the right opportunity to do some major marbling. When I sat down to brainstorm projects for the upcoming Easter holiday, I thought about how the vivid shades of nail polish would be perfect for marbling Easter eggs… and didn’t they turn out pretty? Making these is rather addictive: I couldn’t stop playing around with different color combinations and dipping just about everything in sight into the swirly waters. But the most fun part was seeing how each egg turned out completely different. Keep reading to see how it’s done!
- Pour a few drops of each nail polish color onto the water surface. Be sure to experiment with the step as the order you pour the colors results in varying marbleization.
- Use a stick to swirl nail polish around.
- Carefully submerge the drained egg into the water until completely covered, then quickly pull out.
- Set egg aside to dry. Scoop out nail polish from water surface between eggs, and repeat steps 1-4 for each. tip: create an egg drying rack like the one pictured by poking t-pins through a thick foam board, about 1.5-inches apart.
