Dear Teachers:
I use Ross Art Paste (make it a day before) as the floating agent for acrylic
paint. It seems to work fine and is easier than carrageen (I'm still not sure
about this-I think you need to cook it and stir and thicken as a soup but the
Ross Art Paste is great, makes a gallon which can be used many times. I have a
question for others who might know. I coated my paper with Alum which is what
my instructions said to do and the marbling really stayed or stuck on the
paper. You have to coat one side of the paper with an alum mixture-put in a
large rectangle of the alum mixture, take out and dry. Anybody else have any
ideas on the alum????? How do you do it. If you don't use the alum the paints
slide off the paper and don't stick as well. Can anything else be used in place
of alum? Thanks for any input. Sincerely, Peggi
