Marbling Overview

Marbling is done by floating paints on a thickened liquid solution (called a gel). Once you are happy with the floating design it is frozen in time by laying a piece of paper or fabric onto the surface of the gel and allowing it to float and absorb the pattern. The paper or fabric is lifted up off the gel to reveal a unique once off print. You can also marble odd shaped 3D objects by dipping them gently into the marbling bath allowing the paint to wrap around it e.g. wooden items and ceramic in bisque state. Only marble porous surfaces that normal acrylic paints will adhere to. You can marble other surface types by either sanding off finishes or painting on a suitable paint primer first (primers available from hardware stores).
