Place the ornament on its side in the cup to let the paint coat the inside of the glass. Rotate the ornament approximately every hour until the inside of the ornament is mostly covered by paint.

Turn the ornament upside down in the glass and let it sit overnight. The colors will marbleize together and any excess paint will drain out into the cup.
