This is one of two spring water marbles I have planned. This is my favorite water marble to date!! I'm certainly not an expert, but I do have some tips that'll hopefully help those of you who want to learn water marbling. I started typing them into this post and realized it became WAY too long, so tentatively, I plan to do a water marbling tips post, and another post on how I actually do water marbling. Or I may combine them, we'll see.
Anyway, enough rambling, onto the water marble!!
And I'm throwing this one in, too. It's from my cell phone:
1 coat Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On
For the water marble:
OPI What's With The Cattitude?
OPI Gargantuan Green Grape
You may be wondering why most photos are of my left hand. Well, it's because I'm right handed, and trying to hold my camera and take photos with my left hand is NOT a pretty thing. My hand shakes when I try to push the shutter button, and my right hand doesn't know how to pose properly. It's just an ugly combination and I rarely get a nice photo, which is why you guys always seen my left hand.
Also want to note that this water marble was totally inspired by this post from the AMAZING My Simple Little Pleasures. She has phenomenal water marbling skills. I ♥ her!! And I had initially picked different colors, I hadn't intended to use the same colors she did. I had Green, Blue, Orange, and Pink. But the orange was WAY too dominating, and I decided to switch out the pink with purple because I have another marble I want to use pink in. My inspiration from her post was the pattern... which actually looks nothing like what I ended up with! Haha, oh well!!
