You can easily make these kinds of decorative marbled colanders and I am sure people will fall in love with it. You can simply color it and gift it to your friends and family, thanks to Ariel Garneau, for his amazing tips.

Ok, let’s move to the main part. How can you make yourself decorated marbled colander? One more thing I want to tell you before starting that you can do it with a plate or bowl, however, I prefer colander since it looks better and it is easy to wash.


The thing you will need

  • True Ochre Americana Acrylics 2oz
  • Cinnamon Drop Americana Acrylics 2oz
  • Poodleskirt Pink Americana Acrylics 2oz
  • Burgundy Wine Americana Acrylics 2oz
  • Silver Sage Green Americana Acrylics 2oz
  • Baby Blue Americana Acrylics 2oz
  • Pouring Medium DecoArt Pouring Medium 16oz
  • Aluminum Pan
  • Plastic Colanders
  • Plastic Cups


How to do

Step 1: The first thing you need to do is to pour each of the paint colors into different cups. You should not pour much paint color since you do not know exactly how much will you need and also you can add more paint color further. So for now, pour a small amount of paint color.

Step 2: Now, you need to add to the paint equal amount of paint pouring medium. Then mix it. You can use the straw to do that job. Also, if you want to save a little money then you can keep the straw cutting down since you need to mix another color next.

Step 3: During the time it is happening, just stand up a small cup inside your aluminum pan. Surely, whatever you’re going to pour on it you will be resting. If you simply let this sit in the pan then eventually the paint will dry with the chosen canvas of yours inside it.


Step 4: now just start pouring! Though some people simply put everything into a large cup and after that tip this over, however, you will be able to layer the colors in your own way which will you enjoy most.


Step 5: Repeat the process along with as different colors as you desire to use. Finally, let it dry. Since you are using a colander and it has those little holes, as this will dry, you can take a piece of toothpick and then poke those holes in order to release paint and also to free these holes.


You should wait an entire night to let it dry. You know the fruit of patient is sweet. And trust me, when you see the result the next day, you will be amazed that what you have made! This will be turned out a perfect and a great option for you as a fun as well as a fresh summer entertaining.
