The Pebeo marbling range makes the technique of marbling simple for anyone. Prepare the bath by rapidly mixing 3 teaspoons in 1 litre of cold water. Leave to rest for 2 hours. The bath can be kept for 24 hours.
Preparation of mixture and addition of colours
Add 2 heaped teaspoons of thickener to 1 litre of water and stir thoroughly. Leave for 2 hours. Pour a 2-3 cm layer into a plastic tub. Using the dropper deposit colours on to the surface of the mixture.
Creating marbled effect
Allow the drops of colour to spread for a few seconds, then swirl with a wooden stick, the point of a knife, or a comb until you obtain the patterns you want.
Colour transferring and drying
Carefully lay the paper or fabric on the surface and leave for 10 seconds. Lift out and rinse quickly under running water to remove excess colour. Allow to dry flat. To fix colours on fabrics, press on the reverse side of the fabric for 3 minutes using a hot iron.
