Paper Marbling Technique with Nail Polish

Today I created a new video for the series “WOW backgrounds”. This is a series of video tutorials depicting easy to make backgrounds for mixed media, crafts, art journaling, cards and scrapbooking.

Today’s technique is Paper Marbling with Nail Polish. This is an amazing DIY  Background Technique which is a spin off an idea I saw on Pinterest to marble stones and pumpkins. I decided to experiment with Yupo paper and Strathmore smooth bristol paper.

Here are the other two videos with he previous backgrounds:

1. Backgrounds with leftover sprays:

2. Backgrounds with Sharpie Markers


 Here is the video using nail polish:

This is a super awesome technique that gives amazing results. I really love the marble effect and the cells that formed between the paint.

    I抦 impressed, I must say. Actually not often do I encounter a blog that抯 each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the issue is one thing that not sufficient individuals are talking intelligently about. I’m very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing referring to this.
