Re: Marbleizing paper

Just finished a workshop and we did marblized paper. We had water mixed with
cornstarch in a large bin. Then we spattered colors of oil paint diluted with
some linseed oil onto the surface of the water. We then took a toothpick (you
can also use a hair pick---one with the wide combs) and gently move the paint
around on the SURFACE. Do not mix the colors down deep. They will begin to
marblize. Don't overdo, either. Lay the paper GENTLY on top of the water
surface. Remove and lay it on several layers of newspaper. Bring it to the
sink and let the water run gently on the paper to remove the cornstarch. Dry
the paper on a flat surface. This works. I did it.
