Chelsea Costa, who lives in California, has introduced how to make candle holders using nail colors on the website of the US housing channel "HGTV".
The materials to prepare are a transparent glass candle holder, a nail color, a container for water, and a toothpick. Nail remover and cotton to adjust after completion, and coating spray if available.
First, fill the container with half the water. Water that is slightly warmer than room temperature is optimal for marbling. Then add a few drops of your favorite nail color to the water. If you hang it from a very high position, it will sink, so hang it as close to the surface of the water as possible.
Use a toothpick to quickly and gently draw a marble pattern on the surface of the water. It seems that the point is to do it quickly so that this step does not exceed 1 minute.
Hold both ends of the candle holder and gently immerse it in the water to rotate it. When the glass is colored, turn it upside down and let it dry for about an hour. Complete with nail remover and cotton. It seems that you can keep it clean by spraying a coating spray.
It seems difficult to get the hang of it, but is it okay if I have a remover even if I make a mistake? If you can do it well, it will be a good gift.
