      Hi Rita:
      You can use rainwater for marbling, but I not recomend use rainwater that come from a zinc-plate made roof, or derivated from a plumber not recovered or painted from inside. Because the anionic ions of the metal "go off" very quickly the solution.

      I'm a beginner at marbling, at new to this group

      fine cloth) for mixing the paints and the carragennan?

      For how long can I keep mixed carragennan size
      in a bottle before it would "go off"?
      and for how long can I keeo alumed paper?

      Thank you very much in advance for any reply.
