marbled tray

You’ll adore this genius marbled tray, made with acrylic paint poured onto clear plastic. Marbling medium makes it super-easy to swirl your favorite colors together. You might find yourself making one for every room in your home!
Step 1
First, pick out three or four of your favorite paint colors for this quick project. For each color, pour one part acrylic craft paint and two parts marbling medium into a disposable cup. Use a craft stick to mix the paint and medium together until they’re blended.

TIP: Be sure to stir gently and slowly to prevent bubbles from forming in the mixture.
Step 2
Time to pour! Pick a paint color and pour a little puddle of it into the center of your tray. Continue to pour your paint colors into the tray, alternating colors and areas of the tray as you go. There’s no specific pattern, so just have fun and allow the paint to spread across the tray’s bottom. 
Step 3
Now, pick up the tray and carefully tilt it to all sides to move the paint around, until you have the marbling you’re looking for. If you need to, you can pour out excess paint. Vary the places you pour the excess paint from to add even more marbling! Let the paint dry for at least 24 hours and you’re done!
