  The marbling is a great starting point with doing a surrealistic drawing.
I had my students do a line drawing of a surrealistic drawing. They first
had to do about 3 sketches in their sketch books before doing the final line
drawing. Next, they would take a couple scrap sheets of sulfite and
practice the marbling effect. Next, they would marblize their line drawings
and let the paper dry fully. Last, the students would spend about four to
five days using prisma colors to bring out the drawings. Regular color
pencils work okay, yet to not create the brilliance of the prisma color
pencils. The students really enjoyed this project! They found unique ways
to make connectiions with all the swirls of marbling to their drawings. I
have some examples and a lesson with an evaluation form I could send to
anyone that would like a copy.

  You guys have helped me tremendously when I was frustrated with my first
year of intstruction. I use to think about quitting my job when I worked
between two schools, traveling everyday and not having a conference period.
AFter reading through the posts I would feel encouraged to stick with and
ride out the waves! Thanks to all of you for sharing your experiences about
teaching and never hesitating to help your peers!

  Thanks to those who gave me some superb ideas for fund-raising for my art

  It can be this simple for the results you get. This method is great if you
  have no money and you have a lot of old chalk pieces. However, you don't
  really get a great marbling effect. It is VERY subtle and doesn't have the
  "WOW" factor of other marbling methods. Take five minutes to try a quick
  batch. You will see that it is an OK process, but the results are well,
  of mediocre.
