      The marbling bath was water and carageenan.  We then transferred the image onto paper and let it dry.  For it to stick to fabrics, you need to treat the fabric with Alum  first I believe.

      This is interesting!  And what did you use for the marbling bath? And am I correct that you printed them on paper?  I would wonder how they would be processed (heat, steaming, time for batching) on fabric.

      There is always more to learn!

      Hi Jill, 

      I can not provide the name or where to buy them, but I was provided natural plant pigment powder dyes to use in my EBRU class.  We briefly discussed they were all natural, and blue was from indigo, yellow from tumeric, etc etc. But my instructor brought them from turkey, so I do not know where to get them.  We took the natural pigment and mixed it with water. To that we added the oxgall.
