Hi, thank you for reply,
i have one more question - why colors do not spread evenly on the
base? i was experimenting with thinning/thickening base and colors,
the best result i got is that colors spread enough (3-4") but they
are very grainy especially in the middle. I am using Pebeo Marble
colors and Sodium Alginate for base.
thanks everyone for help

not the way to get them. However, you can marble on dyed and/or
painted silk. If you want a single color background, just use dyed
silk. For large spots or shapes of a solid color, paint them first.
Then you can use surfactant, such as Photo-flo, o open up large areas
in your marbled design for the background to show through.
