The Pebeo Marbling Inks are available in 9 vibrant colours and are all water based. Used in conjunction with the Pebeo Marbling Bath you can create gorgeous marbled effects on paper and fabric with ease. Each 45ml pot has a dropper in its lid so its very easy to add the required amount of colour into the prepared marbling bath.
Preparation of the bath
Sprinkle 2 heaped tablespoons of thickener into 1 litre of cold water. Mix vigorously and allow to stand for at least 2 hours. Next, spread a layer of the bath/gel 2-3cm thick into a flat tray or a container larger than the objects to be painted.
Adding the Marbling Inks
Using a dropper, carefully drop the selected Marbling Ink colours on the surface of the mixture/bath.
Allow the drops of colour to spread for a few seconds before working them with a wooden stick, point of a stick or comb to get various patterns and marblings.
Transferring and Drying
When the marbling is complete, gently place the side of the fabric or paper to be painted onto the surface of the coloured bath and leave for 10 to 15 seconds. Lift it out and quickly rinse it under running water to remove any excess gel or colour.
Allow to dry on a flat surface. To fix colours on fabric, press on the reverse side of the fabric for 3 minutes using a hot iron.
