Handmade gifts can be the most cherished, but not everyone is good at or has enough time for elaborate crafts. Whether you're new to do-it-yourself or a seasoned pro, this is sure to be a fun project.
For this she has a few nail polish colors she likes (any preferred colors are possible), a small container like a plastic or paper cup, some kind of skewer or even pencil, some blu. tack or Plasticine or modeling clay, and some glass beads or marbles. She first shows how to stick the glass marble onto the end of the skewer stick with the Plasticine. Once she has a good grip on the the curved side of the glass, she sets it aside to get the water ready. Into the cup of tap water she puts in drops of nail polish, then manipulates the droplet pattern into a new, even more interesting pattern.
When happy with how it looks, she dips in the marble at an angle. Since she likes how it turned out, she sets it aside in a glass to dry. If she doesn't like one, she just gets some nail polish remover, wipes off the glass, and starts again. When the paint has completely dried, she takes some white nail polish and paints the flat side. After that new layer has dried, she removes the polish from the curved side. The amazing effect this has on the marble is now more obvious. The colorful marbles can now be gifted as they are or as jewelry, magnets, or whatever else you can think of.
