DIY Marble Artwork

We didn't want our dark nursery to be too drab so we have added tons of handmade artwork to brighten the room.  One of my favourite tutorials was to produce a marble effect on canvas using nail polish.  I wanted to try it at home so I bought some cheap dollar store nail polish and canvas.

I drizzled the nail polish in about an inch of water and dipped the canvas in.

I honestly wasn't thrilled with my first result.  It was too bright and I was missing the marble effect.  I decided to scrap this one.

I decided to try a different colour family and to mix brands because I thought they might behave differently in the water and create more interesting patterns.

I was much happier with the finished product the second time around.  I suppose practice makes perfect.
