butterfly embellished marble clay pots

Use the Spin It™ Pro Tumbler Turner to make beautiful paint pour and resin pots, then embellish it with paper butterflies for a personal touch in your home décor.
Step 1

First, cover your working surface with a disposable table covering and put on a pair of the gloves included in the prep kit.

Step 2

Carefully place your first clay pot onto the spring arm of your tumbler turner. You will want to squeeze the four spring pieces together with one hand while placing the pot onto the arm with the other hand.
TIP: It will only go on about halfway. Be careful not to force it as terra clay pots are fragile.

Step 3

Turn on your turner and pour some of the first paint onto the pot, randomly.

Step 4

Now, randomly pour some of your next paint onto your pot. Continue adding paints while alternating the paint order, placement and amount. Once you are happy with the paint pour added, leave the turner on the fastest speed for a few hours to let the marbling settle, level and start to dry; then turn it down low to let the paint completely dry.
TIP: Your turner should still be on and turning while you are adding paints. You will see it start to marble. If needed, tilt the turner back and forth to move the around a little more.

Step 5

Carefully remove the pot from the spring arm and place on a piece of palette paper to let dry completely.
TIP: Again, squeeze the spring arms to loosen the hold so it is easier to remove.

Step 6

Add some liquid gilding around the rim and/or the bottom. Let dry.

Step 7

Return your pot to the spring arm.

Step 8

Put on a pair of the gloves included in the prep kit and read instructions included with resin thoroughly before you start to mix epoxy. Mix only what is needed for one layer at a time (about 20ml of each part).

Step 9

Turn on the tool to a medium-slow speed and pour a little of your epoxy mixture onto your pot. Spread it evenly around the outside of your pot. Turn the speed up a little and run your glove-covered fingers over the pot in long even strokes to continue to spread the epoxy evenly.
TIP: Be sure you have resin spread evenly around the top edge of the pot as well as at the curve and across the bottom of your tumbler.

Step 10

Turn the tool to the highest speed and allow your pot to spin on the Spin It™ tool for four (to six) hours.

Step 11

Click here for design in Cricut® Design Space™ and butterflies from linen, foil and glitter cardstock.

Step 12

Fold on the score line where applicable then use hot glue to assemble your butterflies.
TIP: Use the image as a guide.

Step 13

Hot glue butterflies onto your pot were desired.
