Pebeo Marbling consists of 9 colours and 1 thickening powder to carry out the art of marbling easily on fabric, paper or any other light base. The technique of Marbling used with Pebeo colours is a simplified and modernized bath technique. It can be undertaken by anyone, even the youngest.
PREPARATION OF THE BATH Sprinkle 2 heaped tablespoons of thickener into 1 litre of cold water. Mix vigorously with a beater and then allow to stand for at least 2 hours. Next, spread a layer of gel 1 to 2 cm thick into a flat tray or a container larger than the objects to be painted.
CARRYING OUT MARBLING - Using a dropper, carefully place the selected Marbling colours on the surface of the bath. - Let the drops spread for a few seconds before working them with a wooden stick, to get various patterns and marblings. - When the marbling is complete, gently place the side of the fabric or the paper to be painted, on the surface of the coloured bath. Leave it lying for 10 to 15 seconds before pulling it out. Quickly rinse it under running water to remove the excess of gel. - Put the painted base on a flat surface and allow to dry before fixing by ironing if necessary.
