Flashback to my newbie days of painting. I stuggled so much with cleaning my brushes that I have soiled a few pieces in our bathroom. Including a beautiful capiz or windowpane dish with gold trimmings. I few more weeks and i'll be moving in manila because college is about to start. I decided revamp this, so that i could bring it to manila.

The smaller dish is an example on how it looked like before revamped it (except for a huge paint stain in the middle). I used acrylic paint for this project, particularly the brand from Reeves. 

Step 1:
I diluted the colors titanium white and yellow ocher. Dont dilute it too much unless your panting on a flat surface, because your paint will drip.

Step 2: 
Paint the whole surface in white, make it thick but not too thick. Add splotches of the yellow ocher where you wish to have the marble effect.

Step 3:
Blend it together to achieve the effect. If ever your brush leaves markings or scrapes of the paint just add tiny drops of water.

That's how easy it is. You can try it on with anything.
