Happy Memorial Day to all of my US readers! As many of us enjoy our day off today having barbeques and relaxing with family let's not forget the reason for this holiday. Let's not forget to honor all of the men and women who have lost their lives for our country as well as the ones who are still serving, as well as their families. Your sacrifice for your country does not go unnoticed, as I am sure it seems at times. I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to each an every one of you.
I decided to try needle marbling today and see if I had better luck with it than with water marbling. I am not 100% happy with it but I think over time I can actually see myself getting better at this technique. I think water marbling may be a lost cause for me. If you haven't seen the needle marbling technique (also called a dry marble) you can look it up on YouTube, there are several tutorials on there.
I wanted to do a patriotic marble so I decided on red, white and blue (of course LOL.) I think it ended up looking like the "weathered" stripes of our flag. It also reminds me of a watercolor painting. I used Milani White On The Spot (my favorite white), Zoya Sooki and Zoya Ibiza. I added a few rhinestone stars on my ring finger and topped it all with Seche Vite.
What do you think of my first needle marble? Weathered flag, watercolor or just "needs more work?"
