I’ve seen many tutorials circulating online the past couple of months, and honestly speaking I was both skeptical and curious about it. How is it possible to transfer pigments from shaving cream to paper… is it possible with whipped cream too? Hehe.
I must try it. It works! I’ve yet to uncover the science behind it, but I assure you it’s as addictive as it is easy – beware! I did a few mini experiments, and seriously can’t wait for my next free afternoon to have a hardcore marbling session – so much possibilities and ways to incorporate into future lesson plans!
I’ve seen it done with food colouring and ink, but I have neither on hand. Instead, I slightly dilute poster paint and put them into these adorable bento sauce containers to aid the dripping process.
There is no right or wrong when marbling, so put yourself out there and have fun! I double dipped some of my cards, used washi tapes/masking fluids to create patterns before marbling – they turned out great!
Okay now go make some beautiful mess! xx. Cherlyn
