once before, but it didn't quite work out the way I wanted. But I think I found out what was preventing me from successful marbles!
Curious about my experience?
Like I said, I've only attempted a watermarble once because well, I just could NOT get the polish to spread properly. I always used tapwater, sometimes I'd let it sit for a while, sometimes I'd use it straight from the tap, I tried boiled water.. it didn't work. The other day though, I was chatting to Emily about thinning a thick liquid latex using distilled water. My boyfriend brought some from the store for this purpose and suddenly I remembered: distilled water works better for marbles!
Sooo, I figured I should give this technique a whirl again. I started with a base of Colors by Llarowe Hot Buttered Rum. Along with it I used Berries in the Snow and Jewel of Denial. Berries in the Snow turned out quite a bit lighter because I didn't use that many rings, so it didn't get too opaque.
I need some advice! To create you pattern, what do you prefer using? I went with an orange wood stick but felt it wasn't "sharp" enough. Do any of you use a specific watermarble tool? Also, yay for liquid latex ♥. I would have been so upset with the clean-up if I didn't use any!
What do you think of my first succesful watermarble? Do you like this technique? And do you have any tips and tricks to share with me?
