i have done some paper marbeling in past art classes. The way that my
teachers always did it was quite simple. Take a large aluminum pan(like
for cooking turkey). Fill it 1/2 to 2/3 full, then take enamel, or latex
house paint, and with a mixing stick swirll in aliitle paint. It doesn't
require much. Designs are altered by the use of the mixing stick. Then,
just lay a piece of paper, perhaps handmade into the pan, and push it
under the water just a bit. Hope this works.
