Instructions

  • Start by prepping your tumbler and applying a layer of White Prime Time.
  • Then get ready to do your hydro dip. Get a bucket of water and drip your two colors of marbling paint in. Give them a gentle swirl or two with a painting stick. then carefully dip your cup in and pull it out. Then allow it to dry completely.
  • Apply a layer of Mod Podge to the entire tumbler. Then sprinkle the glitter on the bottom third of the cup as well as its very bottom. Let everything dry.
  • Now cover your whole tumbler with a layer of Quick Coat or spray adhesive to seal your glitter in. Let the tumbler dry completely.
  • Next add a layer of combined Artist Resin to the tumbler and allow it to cure for at least 8 hours.
  • Now it's time to add your shells. Courtney used hot glue to secure her shells to the sand portion of her tumbler.
  • Then add a layer of combined Artist Resin and allow it to cure.
  • Next apply the decal to your tumbler and seal it with Quick Coat or a spray sealer.
  • Finally, apply 2-3 layers of combined Artist Resin allowing it to cure in between layers. It took Courtney 3 layers of the epoxy to get her tumbler nice and smooth.
