This is my second attempt at water marbling. It is not easy and there are some obvious problems with these (the red’s merged with the white in some cases, didn’t manage the pattern I actually wanted, left index finger over-splodged). For a second attempt though I’m pretty happy. I have a better understanding of the technique, so hopefully next time these will be even better!

PS I’ve been trying a new topcoat as the old one left a blue sheen and had started making bubbles. This one is clear, but seems to crack even after just a day, and that is a chip you can see on my right thumb! More research required.
