You will need
- A disposable deep bowl/tray
- Warm water
- Nail polishes – we’ve used blue and purple
- Plain crockery – we’ve used a white teacup and saucer
- Cocktail sticks
- Kitchen paper
Fill the bowl halfway with warm water. Gently pour 4 or 5 drops of the nail polish into the bowl.
Use a cocktail stick to lightly swirl the nail polish around the water. You could also use a straw to blow over the polish to help it spread out.
Dip the cup into the solution at a 45-degree angle for a diagonal design. You will need to dip it in and out quickly to prevent the polish from drying out in the water.
Take the cup out and dry upside down on a sheet of kitchen paper.
For every new piece of crockery you dye, you will need to refill the bowl of water and nail polish.
Once dry, make yourself a cuppa and enjoy.
Make sure you hand wash your new marbled crockery, they won't be suitable for use in the dishwasher or the microwave.
