Water Marbled Planters - Hello, Spring!

Using the very same technique as water marbling magnets or tiles for coasters, I decided to try my hand at marbling other items like these plain, ceramic bowls I found at the Salvation Army yesterday. They are nice and thick, and I thought they'd make cool planters out on my back porch. They are addictingly FUN to make, so I think my porch will be full of them by Summertime!

After marbleing, I sprayed a couple of thin coats of clear gloss enamel. 

Now when I go treasure hunting at flea markets and yard sales, I will be looking for other things to marble! I'd like to find a ceramic trinket box with a lid next. Wouldn't that be neat?
