Tips and Tricks

  • Work quickly from dripping to dipping, as the ink film dries very quickly on the water surface.

How it is done:

  • First clean the wooden rings if necessary. They must be clean, dust-free and dry. Then glue the wooden rings on top of each other with the help of the wood glue so that a cylinder is formed. Let everything dry well.
  • As soon as the glue is completely dry, the vases receive a priming coat of a-system spray paint in mineral white. Spraying should be done in a well-ventilated place (preferably outside). It is also important that the surroundings are sufficiently covered. An old shipping box, for example, is suitable here in which the vases can be sprayed. Allow the wooden rings to dry well again after priming.
  • Then cover the working area for marbling well and prepare the materials. The white pigments in the easy marble pastel shades settle heavily on the floor. Therefore, shake the colours well or remove the drip cap and stir the colours briefly. Keep the jars open.
  • The white pigments in the easy marble pastel shades settle heavily on the bottom. Therefore, shake the colours well or remove the drip cap and stir the colours briefly. Keep the jars open.
  • Fill the dipping vessel with cold water. Drop the marbling colour and the crystal clear one after the other directly from the dropping glass onto the water surface. A film of colour is formed.
  • In the next step, the colours are carefully mixed to form a marble pattern with the help of the wooden skewer.
  • Now carefully dip the vase in, turning it so that it absorbs the paint.
  • When the vase is pulled out of the water, it should not absorb any more colour from the water surface. It is therefore advisable to remove the remaining colour from the water surface with a kitchen towel or wooden skewer before pulling the vase out of the water.
  • Then allow the paint to dry well, after which the vase can be decorated with dried flowers as desired.
