      Marbling takes practice period. Doing paper or fabric,glass or wood. Its figuring out your formula and working with it over and over. I think its a waste to work with scarves per say. Work with fabric, I have some I like more than others, I make those into different things. Trying to sell over done premade scarves is a waste of time and money. Don't get me wrong that peice you think is ugly someone else will love. But like a fine canvas artist its the quality not quantity...it takes practice practice practice with the formula that YOU work out,,, not all suggestions here are gonna work for everybody.

      Sue, Thanks for your encouraging hints. I am very frustrated with marbling scarves. It is very difficult. That's probably why I don't see many artists doing it here in Pittsburgh. I think I stick with paper.

      Some of you may already have done this, but I had marbled some scarves that
      came out to pale and I figured i had nothing to lose, so I dyed them and
      they turned out great. I did some with Procion Dyes and I did some with
      Jacquard Silk Dye, green label in the microwave. I didn't have a huge
      amount of them. The other thing I've done is to overmarble them, but I had
      already put the scarf tank up.

      I have also done the reverse. Dyed some with Procion and didn't like them,
      so I marbled them and those turned out great also.

      Just passing it on,
