Use room temperature water.
Have all the Easy Marble bottles shaken.
The paints’ “open” time is about a minute, depending on the air temperature and how much paint you have on the water. The more paint you use and the cooler your room temperature is, the longer the open time.
Use generous amounts of your colors (especially the first one) and do not over-stir the colors. Stirring too much tends to create little bubbles and air pockets in the water, plus it can add bits of sticky film to the skewer that can transfer to the design.
Submerge the item vertically into the container of water to marble on both/all sides, even if it’s a sheet of paper. This dipping method is much easier and often yields a more interesting pattern than marbling on just one side (by resting it flat against the water’s surface and then lifting off).
Surface marbling takes some practice to remove any air pockets that occur in the paints beneath. When marbling paper with this method, thinner sheets (such as deli paper) works the best because it’s more flexible on the surface of the water. – Be sure to remove any excess color from the surface of the water while the item is submerged – either blow it away with your mouth or wipe it away with a small piece of cardstock – before pulling it up. This prevents a second filmier pattern from layering on top of the original pattern.
Experiment with lots of different surfaces – paper, cardboard, wood panels, canvas, fabric, glass, metal, plastic, plaster, ceramic, paper maché and more!
