- Jul 4, 2013I think that with craft paint you have to use a different "bond" so that the paint does not mix and turn muddy. Check the archives as off hand I dunno but it could be something as simple as GOLDEN's GAC 900.

>Subject: [Marbling] Advice for a newbie....
>I'm brand new to marbling. I've spent the last month reading online, trying different things and spending WAY too much money on trial and error learning! So far the only thing I know for sure is that this is the most "organic" and uncontrollable art form I've ever experienced. Which is both wonderful and frustrating! Now that I'm starting to get some results that I like it's mostly wonderful though.
>There is one point I'm still stuck on though and I was hoping someone could give me some advice. The thing that inspired me to start marbling was this one woman's work. I accidentally ran across a photo of her work online and loved it. She does these large (some look up to 18") concentric rings that end up looking almost like growth rings in a tree. The rings are so fine and close together, but when I try to get this effect my rings start breaking up. I know I'm not using the best paint, just craft acrylics, so do you think that is my only problem
