3. Dip dye half of the glass bowl inside concrete mix in addition to move which around a little to get a Great amount of concrete on the glass surface. Then take which out, place on a piece of paper in addition to repeat with the remaining two bowls. In order to change the colour of concrete coming from gray to dusky pink, add into the mixture pink paint, then stir well.
