I know the topic of Marbelizing Paper has been on here repeatedly, but I =
need some help. We are using the liquid starch method with thinned down =
acrylics. The first ones we did came out great, then it seemed like =
they started looking almost one color all over. We then dumped the =
starch, thinking that maybe it had too much paint or something, poured =
in a new batch of starch and started over. It still looked about the =
same. =20

Questions: How long should you leave the paper in there? Is it =
possible that some batches of starch don't work as well as others? It =
was new bottle bought from WalMart. I need help before Monday so that =
we can finish this project successfully.

Help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Kay
