Hi again, Couldn't resist this string. I saw this at the PAEA convention in
October and need to share this new technique.
Marblizing paper with colored chalk(Prang FREART to be specific). You just
have to hold the large chalk above a flat container containing clear water and
scrape the sidewalk size chalk, so that the dust falls onto the surface.
Change colors and repeat or just keep it one color. Lay the paper on top and
it will adhere to the paper, just like traditional marbling, with out all of
the mixing nightmares. Let the paper dry face up, flat. It has to be these
chalks, from what I understand because of the chemical make up of them(calcium
something or other). Keep the creative juices flowing and don't let the
holiday hubbub get you down !! Christine :)
