Who knew it could be so easy to create marbled drinking glasses to add colour and style to your next party or gathering.
The secret behind making these DIY Marbled Drinking Glasses? Nail polish! Using a simple yet clever marbling technique, you can transform flat bottomed drinking glasses into a stunning set of swirled glassware that’s definitely one-of-a-kind unique DIY gift. Just make sure to hand wash these dishes! You don’t want the paint to chip.
The supplies you will need to create your marbled drinking glasses include flat bottomed glassware, variety of colorful nail polish, clear nail polish, a disposable plastic container, nail polish remover, painters tape and toothpicks.
To start making your marbled drinking glasses, mask off the bottom of the glass with painters tape. Fill a disposable, plastic container with water. Open all the nail polish bottles.
Start by dripping polish into the water, one color at a time. Layer the colors one on top of the other. Take a toothpick and pull out the polish to create a swirly pattern, starting from the center. Work quickly as the polish will start to harden and clump up over time.
Submerge the bottom of the glass into the polish. Allow the polish to collect around the sides of the glass and pull out carefully. Little air bubbles may form but that is to be expected!
Before marbling the next glass, take a clean toothpick and sweep up any excess polish from the water.
Allow your painted drinking glasses to dry completely before applying a layer of clear polish which will create the marble effect. Once everything has dried, remove the painters tape and touch up with nail polish remover and a cotton swab.
Your marbled drinking glasses are now finished!
