So...if the photo at the top of this post is not soap, then what is it? It's marbleized coasters!
I have had an obsession with marbleizing my nails since last summer. The tutorials on YouTube are mesmerizing. And there's no wrong way to do it, which is a beautiful thing! I decided to try the application on something else. Voila!
I filled a square plastic container with water and plopped droplets of nail polish on the surface, swirled it a bit, dipped the tiles in upside down and ended up with the most beautiful designs! After they dried, I sprayed on high gloss acrylic sealer. Now I just have to glue some cork on the bottom and I'm done.
Top three things I love about this project:
Short money (the tiles were only .16 at Home Depot)
Don't you just love it? I look forward to sharing my how-tos and other fun ideas with you!
