Marbling with spray paint on a cup
(1) Prepare the painting
- Fill the water container.
- Choose your three colors! Then, at a distance of about 20 centimeters, spray the surface of the water with the chosen colors: one on the right, one on the left and another in the center.
- Mix the colors with the rod to obtain the marble effect. Warning! You must be quick so that the paint does not dry (yes, the paint can dry in the water, because it stays on the surface).
(2) – Paint your cup
Now you just need to paint the cup. Grab the handle cup and immerse it in the plastic container to obtain the marble effect. Keep it submerged a few seconds. Then extract it. Do not be impatient. It’s essential that you leave the cup to dry for about twenty minutes so that the paint solidifies.
