Play with the color schemes you like and have fun making new colors.
Oil paint paper marbling.
You can use one color or many.
But it was a long, fun day;
You want it about the consistency of 2% milk.
Add some white paint if you want to get pastel shades.
Artists’ oil paints contain inorganic pigments mixed into an organic linseed oil binder.
We’d seen several methods, but we had almost all the supplies to marble with oil paints so we decided to try that out first.
Stir vigorously to be sure oil and color are mixed well (as they can be).
Having the best oil paints can make creating these easier.
Gently press your sheet of paper or card stock into the foam.
Use a whisk to stir the mixture and let it thicken for one hour.
There is no need to completely dunk the paper unless you are wanting to marble both sides of the paper.
Drop colours into the foam and drag your stir stick through to create a swirled look.
Pour about an inch of water into the tray.
Now on to the marbling:
Mix 1/4 cup of methyl cellulose with 2 quarts of water for the best marbling consistency.
Also used when marbling cl o t h i n g ,wood and papier m â ché objects.
In anticipation for this visit, we made lists of possible crafts, and “paper marbling” appeared on both lists.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil per color 5 to 10 drops liquid food coloring 1 to 2 cups water, depending on the size of your container thick paper, like cardstock shallow dish, like a casserole dish or dish pan jars with lids eye droppers
