    Marbling is the ancient art of floating paint on the surface of thickened water (known as the “marbling size”) and then transferring this floating design onto paper or fabric. It has a rich history throughout Europe and Asia.

    Jacquard’s marbling system (available in the Jacquard Marbling Kit) eliminates the guess work that is typically associated with marbling and allows even beginners to achieve professional-quality results. All Jacquard’s Marbling Colors spread equally on the marbling size and produce the most intense colors possible. On fabric, the Marbling Colors are soft to the touch and completely washfast after heat-setting. On other porous and semi-porous surfaces, the paints have excellent adhesion.

  3. The Chevron is a classic! It is done by doing the Gel-Get first. Back and forth with a stylus up and down, and then back and forth side to side. Then comb the Gel Get up to get a Nonpareil, move the comb ever so slightly so that it cuts each mark you just made in the Nonpareil in half and reverse the comb back to its original position at the bottom of the tray. That's the Chevron and it looks so cool and sharper than most other patterns. When laying the paper, fabric or film down, hold it from two diagonal corners and as soon as the middle touches, you let go to let the corners fall without trapping air underneath.

  4. This is a good example of trying different patterns until one works. First we had several freestyle patterns using the stylus, and then a swirl pattern with the comb. None were to my satisfaction so I then made a spiral design. Finally, still unsatisfied, I combed a Nonpareil from the spiral and then finished with a Spanish wave shimmy pattern to make the design resembling folded cloth.

  5. This is a semi-traditional design using Jacquard's new marbling kit. Here I made a diagonal gel get with a swirl pattern, and then I added a French Curl in 3 spots, which is a fancy way of saying a made a spiral design with a stylus. A bubble got trapped in the design, but it added a lot of character with this 3D spherical figure in the center! it's easy to avoid that bubble altogether. You should lay the paper down center first and then let the sides drop to prevent bubbles under the design. Most bubbles do not turn out this great.
